This functions less like a traditional tripod and more like a music stand or photo studio light stand with a long thin adjustable neck coming off a stable spread footing. This offers all the utility they need and gave us an opportunity to price these aggressively while offering a really nice solution. We include the following: A professional grade aluminium stand similar to camera studio light stands. We tested about 20 of these from various manufacturing partners. We wanted something with a long neck to easily allow shifting from landscape to portrait iPad use. This is lightweight compared to the iPad Tripod Pro setup. They offer a great price point, excellence in manufacturing of components, great performance and wear for leg adjustments and tighteners, and the ability to work with us to expand and change the configurations as we move the Nootle product line forward. A professional grade Nootle Mini Ball Head. We love these mini ball heads! They're a super compliment to our stand and work great as the interface you'll be using to adjust you iPads final positioning. It's small, but it packs a great punch when you have your iPad Tripod Mount and iPad attached. You'll find its ergonically designed and precision machined so it should give you years of effortless use. A Nootle iPad Tripod Mount. This is our simple, yet popular iPad Tripod Mount that allows you to easily pop the iPad in and out. The 1/4 20 threaded mount works well with the Giotto Mini Ball Head. You can easily rotate and angle the mount for video and photo shooting as well as simple display mode or while using the iPad. The Nootle iPad 2 & 3 Tripod Mount is the same time tested form fitting frame Grifiti uses in our Dootle Book and Notebook Cases for iPad 2 & 3. The form fitting case is made from protective ABS and is coated with a soft polyurethane cover to keep the iPad snug and protected. You can easily access all buttons and slots with the mount on.
