This B&H Kit combines the Padcaster Case for iPad mini 1/2/3 with a Rode VideoMic with Rycote Lyre Suspension System, IK Multimedia iRig HD Guitar Interface for iOS and Mac, and a Manfrotto 2941 Mini Clamp.
Padcaster Case for iPad mini 1/2/3
The Padcaster Case is designed to allow you to improve the quality of video shot using an iPad mini 1/2/3. 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. This allows 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.

Rode VideoMic with Rycote Lyre Suspension System
The VideoMic with Rycote Lyre Suspension System from Rode is a shotgun microphone that can easily be mounted on a DSLR camera. It features a Rycote suspension system that attaches to the camera's shoe. The VideoMic is lightweight, and when mounted on a camera it does not appear in the frame. The VideoMic can also mount to Rode's boompoles for elevated audio capture. Its supercardioid polar pattern attenuates sounds from the sides. The result is a signal that sounds closer to the camera, even when shooting in noisy environments or at moderate distances.
The included Rycote Lyre is a non-elasticated suspension structure composed of a hard-wearing thermoplastic. It is more effective at acoustically decoupling microphones from unwanted vibrations, handling and cable-borne noise than elasticated suspensions. The lyre remains effective at a wide range of temperatures and is virtually indestructible. It will never wear out, sag, snap or require any rethreading to maintain its effectiveness.
An attached, coiled cable terminates to a 1/8" (3.5mm) mini output connection. The VideoMic features a condenser element that utilizes a standard 9V battery (sold separately). The microphone will run for approximately 100 hours on a single battery.
The Rode Video Mic functions as a true line+gradient microphone with a supercardioid pattern in the front and a barrel that cancels side audio. The result is maximum pickup of the source in highly ambient and noisy environments.
Selectable 10 or 20 dB Pad
When capturing audio in loud environments, the VideoMic offers built-in attenuation. The selectable 10 or 20 dB pad lessens the microphone's sensitivity, allowing it to handle higher SPL levels without sacrificing clarity.
High-Pass Filter Switch
A high-pass filter switch eliminates room ambiance and noise below 80 Hz. This results in improved intelligibility while recording around machinery, wind or close proximities.
The condenser element is powered with a standard 9V battery for up to 100 hours (approximately).
IK Multimedia iRig HD Guitar Interface For iOS and Mac
The iRig HD Guitar Interface For iOS and Mac from IK Multimedia is designed to allow you to connect your guitar or line level instrument to your iOS device or Mac for jamming and recording. It has a single 1/4" Hi-Z instrument input that is also compatible with line level signals from synthesizers, keyboards, or mixers. The iRig HD features 24-bit analog to digital conversion as well as a low-noise preamp with 26dB of input gain control. It has low draw power consumption circuitry allowing it to be USB or iOS device powered without the need for batteries.
The iRig has a lightweight, 35-gram body designed for portability. IK Multimedia includes cables for iOS 30-pin and Lightning input compatibility as well as a USB connector for use with your Mac. It is compatible with the range of IK AmpliTube apps available from the App store as well as other real-time processing apps that support digital audio, such as GarageBand.
