The iOgrapher’s features two handles on each side of the case, making the iPad mini a hand-held “Steadicam-like rig.” You can easily add 37mm lenses to its lens mount area for wide angles, fishey looks, or to capture macro or close-ups. Users can attach lighting and audio gear to its three accessory shoes on the top of the case. The bottom of the case is designed to allow mounting the iPad Mini to any standard tripod, monopod, or portable dolly.
“The iOgrapher was born from my passion for filmmaking, my love of teaching and the inspiration of my students,” said Dave Basulto, founder of iOgrapher LLC and the creator of the iOgrapher. “I was so inspired by my students and their potential as future filmmakers. But this effort was also about my passion for technology and mobile filmmaking. I am amazed at the iPad Mini – a device that I can rely on to shoot beautiful video and then share my creations with the world – and all for a low price. It is a revolutionary content creation device with far-reaching implications for consumer and professional filmmaking, education and mobile journalism.” (See an interview I did with Dave back in August about where this road began https://postperspective.com/2013/08/the-path-to-invention.)
The iOgrapher for the iPad Mini is available in a number of colors, including black, white, red, pink and blue.
