The Padcaster Mini – for serious iPad mini videographers only

•, By Ben Coxworth
Like the original Padcaster, the Mini features an aluminum frame and a flexible insert that cradles the iPad, absorbing vibrations and keeping it snugly in place.
Incorporated into the frame are multiple 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 threaded holes. When combined with included cold shoe adapters, these can be used for mounting third-party accessories such as lights and shotgun mics. Additionally, a hole in the bottom lets the rig be mounted on a tripod.
The device also features a removable lens mount bracket, which allows users to position their own wide or telephoto lens over the iPad's existing lens.
According to its inventor, New York-based film-maker Josh Apter, the Padcaster Mini could also be used for applications such as a mounting frame for a DSLR, a portable lighting bracket, or (with an iPad mini inside) a teleprompter.
