The PadCaster iPad rig

April 18, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 


This is sick.  A rig for an iPad to let you hook mics and lights on it  – and even a 35mm adapter!

Josh Apter from the training company Manhattan Edit Workshops wanted a way to put stuff on his iPad and started building this contraption.  It has a urethane insert that securely holds your iPad 3, inside an aluminum frame with 1/4-20 holes all around.  You can mount it to a tripod and put mics and lights and stuff around the frame.  And the wicked cool thing is the little mount so you can put your 35mm adapter on it.  He was showing a quite nice movie he had shot with the rig – very impressive for an iPad.

It will sell for $200 and be available from
