Well worth the spend

Comments about Makayama Movie Mount for iPad Air / iPad Air 2:

This has made my work so much easier. It might seem a little expensive on face value but it really is good. As long as it is secured properly to the tripod, it keeps the iPad very steady.

Comments about Makayama Movie Mount for iPad Air / iPad Air 2:

If you want to mount a mic and lens to an iPad and have it sit on a tripod, this is one of the only options available. I used this all weekend to shoot green screen footage at a conference and it worked well. However, it doesn't feel like a premium product – quite the opposite. I was surprised at how cheap it felt and did not think that it was worth the asking price, TBH, but then again, it did the job.

        • Q:

          We have the Vivitar HD3 MC AF High definition 0.43x wide angle lens that we had with our old ipad makayama movie mount. Would the mount for ipad air 2 fit this lens?

            Hi Viv,

            All the Makayama movie mounts take a 37mm conversion lens - so if it fits your current Makayama, it'll also fit this one.

            A:

            Hi Elizabeth,

            Is that a software version number? It really has no relevance as the Movie Mount is a physical mount to fit an ipad Air 1 & 2. As long as that's what you've got, it will fit.

        • Q:

          Does this item definitely fit the 2014 iPad Air 2? I ask because it is thinner than the older iPad Air.

            A:

            The Physical Dimensions (WxL) of the iPad Air 2 is identical to the iPad Air version, So it will be 100% compatible.

        • Q:

          I currently have a 4th generation iPad but will probably be updating to an iPad air 2 in the next few months. I am wondering why the change to the fixed lens rather than the sliding lens on the fly. Does the iPad air have to use this mount or can it be fitted to the sliding lense mount?

            A:

            In regards to why manufacturers change the way the design these things, is probably found that most people don't need to slide it down. Also we know for a fact its really hard to find a lens with the correct rebate so it fits, hence why we include a UV Filter to make it easier to find a lens. The Ipad air need to use the correct mount, since is smaller in size.
