Padcaster PC5USTU001 overview

  • 1Description

Turn your 2017/2018 iPad Air 1 into a portable production module with the Ultimate Studio kit from the Padcaster. This kit is centered around the Padcaster Case, which has 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes and a cold shoe adapter around the edges of its aluminum frame that let you attach various accessories like lights, microphones, and more. A threaded mount around the camera enables the attachment of lenses with 72mm rear threads, and a step-down ring lets you attach 58mm-threaded lenses as well. A tripod, green screen, and mini teleprompter are included along with a padded backpack to carry all your gear.

  • Case for 2017/2018 iPad Air 1

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.
