Ipad tripod holder

So for weeks Ive been trying to decided which ipad holder to buy to put on my tripod so I can video tape when Im at the field.

I bought this one by Makayama.

This is the side that the ipad snaps into.  It stands upright on your tripod.
 
 
 
 
This is the side that faces out.
 
I wanted this tripod holder because it had a place to screw in a  extra lens. This lens is a wide angle lens which will allow me to get more of the field in when practicing.
 
Here is a video first without the wide angle lens on and then you will see when I slide the lens in place and how much more field I get in view.
 
 
 
 


I shouldnt have put the ipad directly into the sun. Sorry about that.

So far I really like it. It isnt getting to good of reviews. But I like it. One thing people complained of was not being about the reach the on off button when your ipad is snapped in place. But once I slide the lens over, which is really easy, I just press the button. So that doesnt bother me at all.  It also was kinda pricey but I really wanted the sliding lens thing so it was worth it to me. I didnt buy it from amazon but you can. I put it directly from the manufacture.

That is very cool and the wider angel also improved the picture quality too.

Neat! One reason I don't video any more is I don't have a tripod for my itouch.
