Review of an I Pad Tripod

First Impressions

The Raking® Floor Tripod Stand and Mount for Tablet tripod arrived within a day in a small box . On opening the box, I found all the parts were inside a small cloth like bag apart from the I pad mount which was placed separately in the box. There was an instruction booklet too.

Setting up and Using it 

The tripod stand is made of 3 sections which all connect. The base is foldable and the three legs can be extended to enable it to be stable and sturdy. It’s very easy to assemble even without reading the instructions.

The stand is very light and easy to carry around. I took it out in the garden to take some pictures and it remained stable. The extention rods in the middle are of a reasonable height for me but a taller person may wish to keep it in a table or stool. The mount which holds the Ipad is extendable to fit all the various sizes of I pads and my Ipad fitted in securely. The mount enables you to move the I pad to keep it horizontal or portrait position when taking pictures or videos. In fact, you can rotate it in a circle if you needed to.

Once set up you can use it to take pictures or videos depending on the occasion. As a cookery teacher, I am planning to set it up in the kitchen to take videos of my cooking to share on YouTube. I hope to use it to do some videos of products I review too. You don’t have to wait for someone free to hold your camera whilst you try to show a recipe or review a product!! The great thing about this I pad tripod is that it is light and easy to carry it around with you when travelling.


I received this product at a discount in exchange for a truthful and unbiased review.
