I use an ipad mini and had to create a make-shift holder that would allow the ipad to securely mount to the EVO phone adapter. I managed to make one from an old plastic cell phone case as shown in the pictures. I cut the case across and used super glue to attach the pieces together. This particular case had a cutout already there for the phone camera which allowed the EVO bracket to attach. I also had to put some foam inside the top curved piece of the cell case to prevent the ipad mini from sliding out. The shade I use is the PGYTECH shade purchased from Amazon. It also has a top piece that extends it higher allowing the operator to place his/her face inside for a no light viewing experience.
