    Makayama MM3 reviews

    Movie Mount for iPad 2/3/4 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic for Film Students 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for iPad shooters 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The versatile iPad case! 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Movie Mount for IPad - Good Video Tool 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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Needs to get better.... Cheap plastic and plastic threads for tripod mount.... needed an extender to screw in 37mm wide angle lens.... not really what I expected for the price....

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome! 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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth It! 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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a quality product The plastic threads on the Mount did not accept and secure the accompanying lens. I returned this product and purchased another product that was more expensive, but better quality.
