It seems that small point and shoot video cameras like the Flip are going the way of the Dinosaur, as they are being replaced by smartphones like the iPhone 4. But have you ever considered using your iPad 2 as a video camera? Makayama gives you the ability to attach various accessories such as lenses, microphones, lights, tripods and even an optical viewfinder to your iPad 2 with their new Movie Mount case. This Smartcover compatible case offers some cool features such as the ability to attach 37 mm conversion lenses, like wide angle and zoom. It even allows you to easily slide the lens out of the way for on the fly changes. You can pre-order the Movie Mount for $69.95, with availability in October. Check out the demonstration video after the jump.
