Review: Padcaster



Turn your iPad into a professional moviemaking rig! The Padcaster consists of a tough aluminum frame with a urethane insert to securely hold your full-size 10″ iPad (version 2 or later). Besides protecting the tablet, the frame is studded with two dozen 1/4″ and 3/8″ threaded holes for attaching mics, lights, power cables, tripods, and other video accessories. Comes with a bundled shoulder strap and mounting lugs for easy carry and stabilization during use and, even cooler, a 72mm to 58mm lens adapter so you can attach a more traditional DSLR lens.
