The Novo – (Re-Housed GoPro Hero3)

This is pretty cool! View Factor Studios, in collaboration with Radiant Images, has developed and engineered a camera called The Novo!

The Novo is a re-housed GoPro Hero3 that is even smaller in size and offer much more flexibility and customization for cinematic filmmaking uses.
The video below breaks down all the details of this camera, highlighting a feature that I wish was already on the GoPro Hero3, which is an iris locking option.

The Novo camera setup is a bit of an overkill for those folks looking to helmet cam and traditional action cam video. But for filmmakers who are looking for more controllable options with a micro sized camera like the GoPro Hero3, The Novo looks to answer that need.

Along with the option to mount full size lens,  I love the iris lock option that they developed into this camera!  Hopefully, in the near future, GoPro can develop some firmware upgrades that could allow for options like The Nova provides.


Until we can see these custom options on the GoPro Hero3, it seems the camera is available for rental?!
Check out the Radiant Images website for more details and rental information for this camera!
