Videographers will love the Makayama Movie Mount for iPad 2

The iPad 2 is not really meant to replace your professional camcorder, but that hasn’t stopped some people from trying to achieve YouTube fame through videos shot on the iPad. Now they can step up production a notch or two with the Makayama Movie Mount for the iPad 2.

Basically, it’s a tripod for the Apple tablet, plus a case to hold the thing in place. There are also two shoes for you to attach microphones, lights, and whatever other accessories you may choose to use, as well as a mount for lenses if you want to go further than what the iPad would shoot on its own. I guess this could be a fun little project, but the video quality really isn’t going to be much better than a cheap Flip.

You’ll certainly get a few looks if you choose to shoot your “professional” interview segments with a contraption like this and maybe that’s half the point. In any case, the Movie Mount will start shipping next month for $69.95, though they are accepting pre-orders right now.
