    Ipad mount for tripod anyone, need one for photography

    Have been searching for a solution 2 weeks on now, I need to finish this slr studio and the producer asked me to find a tripod to hold the iPad incase we need to monitor the camera or even use it to take foots

    I know IK multimedia sells this IKlip but this thing stays fixed on a mic or tripod, you need to UN screw and re screw the mount back on, not helpful if you need to move it from standard to landscape mode, then I found this iShot for iPad moderated - no external links! . But I'm in Europe and the shipping is the same price!

    Anyway if some here knows a better product for the job please to share, had no luck on slr forums

    Cheers

    Use industrial strength Velcro. Mount one mate on iPad the other on the flat plate on head of tripod. It will do what you want. Stll allow you to store iPad in a case and use the tripod with camera mounted. Just cut small hole in Velcro to allow mounting screw to come thru to camera. This is a very solid mounting. Quick and clean.

    I just did a search on here for "tripod" and came up with a number of threads that may help......I suggest you do the same (I'm on the app at the moment so can't copy links to these).

    Have that alleyway, problem is a plate will block one camera, and it's nice to have the camera available to record the session as well

    That ishot for iPad stand seems to work for pro photographers but they are milking it on the shipping side, they refuse to ship any other way then fed ex express which costs too much and gets to Europe no faster then fed ex reg, insured that is., another guy on a slr forum said he emailed the company and they pretended shipping to Europe included the VAT, which is a lie, because you only have to pay VAT tax on items over $250 dollars and in some countries $200 or even no VAT.

    I found tons of silly little tripods like the ones in camera shop displays that just sit there on a desk, not a single one can mount on a normal camera tripod like a vanguard with levelers and ballhead grips,

    The IKlip needs to screw on a pole of a camera or microphone stand, which is useless since a dedicated stand for it will cost way more then the ishot which is the right camera type of tripod but is unjustly over priced with shipping, I have to wait for a relative to receive and re send it to me from Virginia if I want this.

    Have you looked at Adjustable Padholdr Floor Stand for your iPad, it's one of this forums sponsors I've been told. Also google the iprop.

    we have already been using industrial velcro to mount the ipad to walls near computers, sides of desks, car dashboardss for the tomtom app or to navigate the net via 3g etc etc etc etc


    but the velcro method will not work when it comes to mounting on a professional camera tripod with levelers, but... then again maybe we can get creative, im about to try and place the Velcro on a plate that mounts, but its limited to one side, the back, but maybe i can mount it above a bit so the camera is exposed, this will not allow our hot almost porn like models to see themselves in action though, or our gang of photographers to monitor the positions, which will defeat the purpose of the whole idea with mounting a ipad 2 ona tripod to capture or monitor cannon SLR photo/video shoots.

    i may take the dive and order the iShot for ipad mount, pay the 49 bucks and 39 bucks for shipping, ill double check to see if you need to screw things with it like the iKlip, hopefully it snaps on like a camera adapter.
    If it works all we need after this is lots of towels :P its why they call me hot stuff
