        The IPad video camera is a handy way to shoot HD video and this tool makes it much shooting better video more functional. Not only do you get an easy way to mount the Ipad to a tripod, you get attachment options like hot shoe on top & side as well as a sliding lense mount. I was sold by the sliding lens mount feature that allows you to add a 37mm lenses to the IPad for easy switch to wide angle & 2x telephoto shooting. I was diasappointed that my Zeikos lenses were slightly larger than the slot in the mount and did not fit. I was able to use them once I inserted a Zeikos filter with a diameter that fit and provided an extention for the lenses slide. I am surprised Makayama has not had enough complaints about that to fix with the latest version. The Ipad app provided did not offer any significant options, but it does offer a slightly easier way to control reord/off.

          Comments about Makayama Movie Mount for iPad 2nd, 3rd, 4th Gen:

          I got this to have an easy/cheap tripod mounting solution for my iPad. I do a little of everything (photo/video/mounted screen applications) so the video attachments are nice for when I team up with my film buddies. The quality is a little flimsy for the price, but it seems secure for me. I won't be putting heavy use on it, just a light duty and versatile piece of kit. I also got a cool 37mm conversion lens to use with this case and it did not fit, but not the end of the world as I have seen other reviews saying the same thing, and fixed it anyway.

          I would recommend this product if you aren't looking to jump into pro level stuff and you know what you are getting.

          *** If your lens doesn't fit: Move the grey slider out to the "In use" position, and pop it off from the inside of the case. The inside edges of the black case can then be sanded or (as I did) trimmed down with an xacto knife. The slight flimsines of the plastic helps here because you really don't need to cut/sand much. No need to buy a spacer, although you shouldn't have to modify a product straight out of the box to get it to do what it says it can do

              Our radio station is getting more and more involved in online streaming. An IPad equipped with this case is perfect. Also it like how it doubles as a monitor stand, very handy.

                  I've just recently bought a series of these for my students in a Film and Animation class. Already the quality of the work and the respect students have for an iPad as a professional recording device has improved dramatically. Just having the additional weight on the iPad thanks to this mount means that the students can make smoother hand-held camera shots. Plus having the ability to attach different lenses, lights and shotgun mics to the mount make for a more professional experience for the students. I'd highly recommend these mounts for teachers who have students that are reluctant to use the iPad as a filming device.

                      I am very satisfied with this purchase. I need to create quick, inexpensive videos at work on the fly and this keeps the camera steady on your ipad and is simple to assemble. One thing, you will need a separate cable to attach a regular video microphone to the headphone jack if you dont want to rely on the internal mike from the ipad.

                          I purchased this because I lost my video camera and have not had a chance to replace it yet. My Nikon D800 takes great video but I wanted to take stills with it during the Thanksgiving Holiday and I thought it might be too hectic trying to do both with the camera. This product fit my iPad perfectly and connected to my tripod. It was a great set-up. I also purchased a rode microphone and connected it to my iPad as well. I'm not sure that I will replace my video camera. This was a great solution.

                                  This is a great tool to have in your equipment. I let my 7th & 8th grade students use the Makayama to record their videos when needing a tripod. Best solution I have found to attach an iPad to a tripod.

                                  We use the Rode Videomic for recording audio and we also purchased the Polaroid - Studio Series 37mm 3.5x HD Super Telephoto lense. Both of these items work very well with the Makayama.

                                        Product works as advertised but is way overpriced. It's essentially just a piece of molded plastic. I'm surprised other companies aren't coming out of the woodwork with less expensive alternatives. $20 would be a generous amount to pay and still allow the company to make a good profit.... Don't get burned like I did.

                                          We haven't had a chance to run this through its full paces yet but have done some trial runs. It works as well as it is advertised. Two of the complaints of the device we solved as one. A complaint stated that where the lens mounted as cheap plastic that could strip. Another complaint was that a macro lens couldn't mount due to space constraints. We solved both by buying a 37mm Extension Ring and super glued it onto the device. Now we have a metal on metal screw mount that won't strip and we have the extension needed to mount any lens we might choose to attach. Now we just have to decide if the lens slide is of value or not and if we want to super glue it into place and just add a lens or a filter or both. The iPad is held in place extremely securely, so much so that it takes some effort to remove it from the mount. This is a VERY positive thing as there is almost total security that the iPad won't ever fall out. All in all, we are extremely pleased!

                                              It is exactly what it is advertised to be,a case and camera support! The 37mm lenses that I own (Kenko) work flawlessly and slide out of the way when not needed smoothly. I have yet to add an external mic or light but that will come as soon as I find a need.I purchased this primarily to use as a video platform. If there is anything that i don't like it is that it is by nature of the product a bit bulky when working with an iPad that is thin and sleek. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to explore video on an iPad.

                                                    I am using the Movie Mount to attach my iPad to a tripod so I can take time lapse and movies with it. For this purpose the iPad needs to be held steady. The fact that I can use it with an auxiliary wide angle lens and microphone attached to the mount makes it imminently useful. An added feature is that the lens can be easily slid out of the way if not in use without detaching the lens. So far I have not found any problems with the mount.

                                                                  The mount is fairly well constructed as far as the ability to hold the ipad and mount light & microphone to the "shoes". I think the slide action for the lenses was a great idea, however, the slide should be thicker to allow lense threads to secure. It didn't take much pressure for the lense to "pop out" of the slide and fall to the ground. This mount sells everywhere else for $[$], but B&H sells it for $[$], a much better deal, but still a lot of $$ for plastic.
