The Verge has posted a hands on video of a custom designed video rig called 'The Padcaster' that we previously reported on. The $199 device was unveiled at NAB this week.
The case is big, to be sure, with a soft red inside and a hard aluminum shell - you're not going to want to leave your iPad in the Padcaster all the time. It's strong, though, and held the iPad in securely. Around the edges of the camera are a handful of thread holes and openings, so you can attach the device to a tripod, add a flash or an accessory, or connect an external mic. Using the also-new $79.99 Lenscaster mount, Padcaster creator Josh Apter mounted a Carl Zeiss lens on the camera so he could get film-like focusing range and depth of field.
