Padcaster Studio Rig: Turn iPad into Mobile Studio
It’s so awesome that we can turn something like an iPad into a full recording studio. I remember a few years ago at CES we found out how the OWLE turned an iPhone into a camera. Now Padcaster is doing the same thing with your iPad on the Padcaster rig.

About the PadCaster
The PadCaster is an outer shell that your iPad fits into. The Padcaster is a lightweight aluminum frame with threaded holes to put lights, microphones and other items needed for recording a show.
Use the Lenscaster to attach different lenses from the iPad camera.
Change the Frame, Use your DSLR in Padcaster
The cool thing about this poly-urethane enclosure is they have made one for your iPad and one for your DSLR. That way you have a handle and possible stabilizer for your DSLR camera. Chris Montera talks with John from Padcaster about this great recording frame. Prices for Padcaster start at $149 on BHPhotoVideo. B&H PHoto also has some very interesting bundles which includes lights, Rode microphone, adapters, shoes and a lot more.
