Featured in Apple’s “Your Verse” international advertising campaign for the original iPad Air, as well as the iPad Air 2 “Change” campaign, and Visa’s “Visa Checkout” campaign, The Padcaster is a patented, rugged multifunctional iPad case that transforms the iPad into an all-in-one mobile production studio. The Padcaster enables consumers to shoot, edit and upload video on the fly – or stream live right from the iPad. More than an innovative way to mount an iPad to a tripod, The Padcaster transforms the iPad into an all-in-one production tool.
The Padcaster Mini is designed to dramatically improve the quality of video made on an iPad mini. A complete solution, The Padcaster Mini includes a wide angle lens, unidirectional microphone, dual microphone/headphone jack and a .45 wide angle lens.
Padcaster’s commercial-grade aluminum frame has 24 standard 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. A sturdy urethane insert allows the iPad mini to fit securely into the frame. The Padcaster Mini can also be attached to any standard tripod, monopod or shoulder mount using the steel-reinforced tripod thread and locking-pin hole. By removing the insert, you can use the frame as a DSLR or GoPro cage for added versatility.
The included lens bracket has a built-in 72mm thread and comes with a 72-58mm step-down ring that allows you to attach wide or telephoto 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 for using the frame as a DSLR of GoPro cage.
The Padcaster Mini also comes with our unidirectional microphone and windscreen to ensure your subject can be heard above the crowd; a dual microphone/headphone jack to monitor your recordings live; and our .45 wide angle lens to get a broader view.
