Oh okay, that makes a bit more sense. I guess I didnt think of that because I wouldnt want to carry a mount thats larger than I need it to be for the device Im planning to use it with. Id rather have one for my tablet (not that Id use my tablet for this kind of stuff) and one for my phone.
the whole mount is the size of my iphone 5s...and by having the ipad mini spot you can mount the phone in the vertical orientation(not for video, but good for triggertrap)...i think i'd probably only use the ipad mini when i'm using it at my apt...could also be good if i do remote shooting with my 70D and use it to see the photos after i've shot them...for like self portraits, instead of having to use the small LCD screen
i've yet to really use it for anything to be honest...but for $4 i think it'll give me some different functions...i can't see what the ones for $30 would offer over it really
