    Take a lot of HDR photo's which requires a second shot, of the same source, to merge the different settings. Due to my disabilities, I need a tripod to mount my IPad 3, to maintain the stabilization of the photos.

    Does anyone have any suggestions of a tried and true tripod for the IPad. It must be capable to maintain the IPad, without the possibility of it falling off.

    Thank you in advance for your suggestions. Cecil

    I don't know what HDR photos are, but I have occasion to make panoramas using the DMD Panorama app. To do the panning smoothly and accurately, I built a simple holder for my iPad 3, as shown in the attached photos. With a spacer of 3/8" plywood, shown, the iPad fits very snugly into the holder, and there have been no accidents. It is wide enough to keep the center of the lens over the rotation axis of the tripod head.

    If you have access to simple woodworking equipment, this is about as cheap and simple as it gets.

    I was considering the above yesterday when I saw this for $19.99, free shipping. I ordered it and am hoping to get a threaded hole tapped into it for my tripod.

    well, that was supposed to be the URL. I hate copy/paste on the iPad! Let's try again:

    Regretfully, the thing I bought is not going to work. It's very nice, but the metal covers the camera lens!
