The Padcaster® Case is designed to give you the power to shot professional-quality video with your iPad using its super-mobile and super-sturdy construction. The lightweight, brushed aluminum frame has 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes around the edges for attaching external microphones, lights, and other accessories allowing for greater creative control over filming. The Padcaster® Case can also be attached to a tripod, monopod, or shoulder mount using the tripod thread and locking-pin hole. By removing the insert, you can use the frame as a DSLR cage for added versatility. The lens bracket has a built-in 72mm thread and a 72-58mm step-down ring that allows you to attach lenses with rear threads of 72mm or 58mm. A cold shoe adapter for accessories like LED lights and microphones is also included, as well as a special camera mount screw that allows you to use the frame as a DSLR cage.
