Register Pin Hole Is Misplaced
on December 22, 2014
My biggest frustration with this mount is the fact that the hole for the register pin is located to the side of the mounting screw hole. This positioning means that if you hope to be able to use a pan & tilt head on your tripod, the tilt function will tip the iPad from side to side, not up and down while facing forward. That makes the high cost even more of an issue. (I purchased the model for the iPad Mini at about $70, but the issue is the same across all the Makayama models)
Since this thing is all plastic, why not just create the mold with additional material behind the existing mounting screw hole so the bracket sits properly like a camera would?
To get a proper tilt function, you have to mount the bracket without the securing component of the register pin on your tripod or quick release plate.
