This is a super flexible set up with just 3 great iShot Pro® Mount parts! This kit is intended to mount your iPad on top of your cameras hot shoe adapter and also provide you a professional way to mount your iPad to any Tripod you already use. You can use the whole thing as a iPad Hot Shoe Mount that slides into a cold shoe and locks it in place. You can use the G8 Pro iPad Tripod Mount and Ball Head on any other tripod when you need to and it's Apple Smart Cover compatible too! You just pop your iPad into the frame and you're good to go. Editing photos while using the DSLR Camera and streamlining them to the cloud for faster photo processing on the iPad. There're various apps that work in conjunction with your iPad and your DSLR camera together. Have fun, be creative, enjoy our mount. Other 1/4 20 threaded systems work great with this! It's super strong so you'll find it will easily hold the iPad upright on your camera or tripod. This is a great little system you'll find useful together and as individual parts depending on your situation. Of course the iPad & Camera aren't included in the kit, just the 3 Parts. The iPad Tripod Mount Frame, Medium Ball Head and the Hot Shoe Adapter. We hope you will come to enjoy this mount as much as we do.
