Are you a videographer who is always on the go? Do you want to use your iPad as a monitor for your video camera to ensure that you capture the perfect shot?
Well, the answer is yes, you can definitely use your iPad as a monitor for your video camera. In this article, we will guide you through the steps on how to do it.
What Do You Need?
First and foremost, let’s take a look at what you will need to make this work. You will need an iPad, a video camera that has an HDMI output port, an HDMI cable, and a lightning to HDMI adapter.
Your iPad should be one of the newer models that has a lightning port. It’s important to note that if you have an older iPad with a 30-pin connector, it won’t work with this setup.
Your video camera should have an HDMI output port. Most modern cameras have this feature, but if your camera doesn’t have it, unfortunately, this setup won’t work for you.
You will need an HDMI cable to connect your video camera to your iPad. Make sure that it’s long enough so that you can position your iPad at a comfortable distance from your camera.
Lightning to HDMI Adapter
Lastly, you will need a lightning to HDMI adapter. This adapter allows you to connect your iPad to the HDMI cable and ultimately display what’s being recorded on your video camera.
How To Connect Your Video Camera To Your iPad
Now that we know what we need let’s get started with connecting everything together.
- Connect one end of the HDMI cable into the output port of your video camera.
- Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI port of your lightning to HDMI adapter.
- Plug the lightning end of the adapter into your iPad’s lightning port.
- Turn on your video camera and make sure that it’s set to output via HDMI.
- Unlock your iPad and you should see what’s being recorded on your video camera displayed on your iPad screen!
Using your iPad as a monitor for your video camera is a great way to ensure that you capture the perfect shot. With just a few simple steps, you can easily connect everything together and start recording. So, go ahead and give it a try!
