Sure your iPad packs a camera but do you really ever use it beyond capturing impromptu subway fights? As both a tripod and a case, Makayama’s Movie Mount sets out to explore the tablet’s potential—its hot shoes allowing you to mount shotgun mics, lights, and serious telephoto lenses to the device. The Mount also comes equipped with a stock 37mm lens and a slide feature lets you quickly change lenses, while the iPad 2’s 9.7-inch screen transforms into a monitor. For only $70, it’s a good option for starter types or those just looking to trick out their tablet.
