Just don't expect much out of this device if you are planning to use the long pole and clamp.
My suggestion to the manufacturer: Put some teeth in the clamps that tighten. This will keep the thing in place without moving. One simple fix and this would be a five star product for the price.
I have owned 2 of these iClaw holders, and they function perfectly. It is super simple to put together and set up... It ships with several sets of clips (iPad 1&2, 3rd gen, Air, and Mini). You just pop the right set of clips onto the holder, and then pop your iPad into the clips.
As I was looking for different products that would suffice for my uses, I "took a chance" on this one. There are LOTS of products around that serve this function, but most are much more expensive. This one is inexpensive and works like a charm!
It is super quick to turn from portrait to landscape. Just loosen the back knob, position and tighten. Several others I've used have to use tools to do this or take them apart.
Next, the fact that it moves the ipad to one side or the other makes it far easier to see around a boom mic stand than one that mounts directly to the stand. The boom or mic is always in my way on others.
Last, some other holders I've used make you select preset or notched positions for viewing. This one can be set at any position or angle. Useful when stage lighting or outdoors causes a glare.
It doesn't get 5 stars because it isn't very attractive. The silver rod tends to reflect stage lighting so I often cover it with a piece of black electrical tape. There's also a black tension screw (plastic) that seems to do nothing so I remove it. Seems to make no difference except that its easier to reposition without it.
This clamp looked like I could adapt it to standard film sockets, and I wasn't disappointed.
The main adapter comes with three bags of customized clips that you snap semi-permanently onto the black cross. They can hold the 2nd and 3rd Gen iPad, the mini and the Air, although I have not personally tested their fit; only the 3G iPad, which snaps in very reassuringly.
The back has a ball joint for angling. The locking ring has an extended arm that allows easy and rapid repositioning and secure tightening. Very good design.
Coming off the ball is a 45-degee metal ell that is female-threaded with standard 5/8-27 thread that will fit most mic stands, but can easily be adapted to 3/8-16.
Threading into that 5/8-27 ell is a solid steel rod. There's a 5/8-27 jam nut to secure it from rotating.
An adjustable clamp slides up and down the rod. The clamp is designed to grab a mic stand, so it doesn't open enough to attach to large tripod legs, but would if your leg is an inch in diameter or less. A large thumb handle allows you to loosen and tighten the clamp along the rod. The clamp itself has plastic coated jaws so you won't scratch the mic stand it's attached to.
The rod has a cap at the end so if you loosened the thumb handle and the whole thing flopped down, it will not slide all the way out of the clamp and crash the iPad to the floor. Good design.
The IClaw is clean and minimalist, yet secure and beefy where it needs to be with finger-friendly locking knobs. Good price for a lot of engineering and materials.
