New Product Preview – iPad 2 Movie Mount from Makayama

For those who loves shooting video on your iPhone, ever picture yourself shooting with your iPad 2? Makayama’s iPad 2 Movie Mount (US$69.95) is to be released in October this year. From the video, it sure looks sweet with the slide on-the-fly between the built-in lens and the conversion lens, the ability to mount shotgun mics, video light and the optical viewfinder. That together with the iPad app and with the mount double up as a monitor stand when in upright position surely justifies the price tag. The only downside I see it is not with the mount itself but with the under-par camera on the iPad 2. What are your thoughts?

    • Well, you can only order from them direct. Mind you, the mount is in fact made out of cheap plastic but still sturdy but definitively not worth the money. Check B&H and see if you can find any alternatives.
