I'm working on several short skits and eventually a feature length film using my iPad Mini as a camera, so this is exactly what I needed. The packaging is decieving, when I got it in the mail I thought "There's no way this tiny package has a mount in it," but it does! It works for the iPad Mini, as well as several other similarly sized tablets. I have an Otterbox Defender Case on my iPad Mini, and the clamps stretch out to it just fine-- which was something I was initially worried about when I first set it up. You need to mix and match the attachable clamps to the mount accordingly. It fits great on my tripod and monopod. So if you're looking for a great iPad Mini/tablet mount for your tripod or monopod, get this one! I'll definitely be ordering another one of these for my monopod.
