The difference filming with a tripod can make to the quality of your videos shouldn’t be underestimated. More and more cases are on the market that allow you to attach your tablet to a tripod.
My favourite case is custom fitted to hold an ipad 3 or 4. It is called “ipad movie mount” and was about £40. While a little expensive, these cases offer good protection and, if laid on a table,
it sits your ipad at a comfortable angle to work with.
A cheaper solution (£1) was less classy but effective. My local poundland sell tablet stands that fit any size. By adding a thick strong elastic band to the quick release plate or the tripod, you can mount any sized tablet or phone. This solution is best when a student brings in their own tablet.
Do you have a novel way of mounting tablets to tripods?
