Assembly is very easy and only takes a few minutes. I did find that it was difficult to get my camera mounted on the plate as it requires everything to be lined up precisely and secured with a wing nut. The black shroud to prevent reflections also needs adjustment with smaller cameras as it will occasionally flop down in front of the lens.
But once the kinks are worked out it is an exceptional teleprompter for the price. Images out of my iPad are crisp, clean, and very legible with no image degradation on the recording. Really nice.
If you're looking for a cheap teleprompter this is the one to get!
I was disappointed when the product arrived with the glass broken but the seller responded quickly and went above and beyond to make sure that I had a working teleprompter on my first shoot. The product was a little difficult to put together (I'm not mechanically inclined) and again when I contacted the seller they responded quickly and didn't let me go until setup was complete.
The chances that I'd write a positive review after having the product arrive broken were slim and none but the customer service really was above and beyond any experience I've had when faced with similar problems. I'm happy to support more people who run their business like these folks.
1. Instead of horizontal the tablet (in my case, the Nexus 10) needed to be vertical with text being as big as possible.
2. The covering cloth that came with the unit was letting light leak in and maybe that was causing an issue? I googled how to make a better (bigger) cloth and found some tutorials easily. I went to Jo-Ann's (fabric store) bought about $10 of material made my own replacement unit. I am very happy with the results, the shifting eyes are gone and its much easier to see the text regardless of reflective surfaces on location.
I use a canon 5d Mark III and manfrotto gear, so far no issues. I bought 2 quick release plates, one to quickly connect the teleprompter to the tripod and one for the camera to teleprompter. Great investments, quick and easy on all my gigs.
Overall, the quality is fair and once I made those alterations it became a worthwhile investment. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone on a budget but need a standard quality teleprompter.Read more ›
I asked the company at first to make sure it works with my setup: I have a Canon t2i camera and a HVX200 camera. I got a quick response for the answer and after a week, I placed my order.
So, here's my experience with the prompter:
It took me a bit to figure out the instruction how to assemble the pieces together since the instruction with picture was done in b/w color, it was hard to figure out the 'bottom part' of the metal plate, if the curve area should face up or down, after 30 mins of monkeying around, I got it right.
The screws for the prompter were not as 'accomodating', when I got all the pieces screwed together, the screw head was still sticking out a bit. I figured it would be ok... Keep reading, I was wrong...
the Glass was good, the clothe that came with it is of a fabric that can easily attract animal hairs or foam, so I would suggest if you can, switch to a clothe typed that wouldn't be attraction prone.
2. setting it up with my DSLR T2i camera.
I was having a hard time to use the wing nuts to secure it to my tripod (which was a vivitar cheap tripod), the tripod's head screw was shorter, so it managed to secure it. When I screw the wing screw to the t2i, I had a hard time put my fingers between the top and bottom plate (it would be easier if you unscrew the prompter and do rescrew it back). then once I had the t2i on with the prompter, I realized it was wabbly.. Yeap, the screw was longer than the intended hole on the t2i.Read more ›

Works just as described but it is very heavy; have a strong tripod! I believe there should be something out there made of aluminum instead of heavy steel. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Javier Bonilla Castañeda
Two minor improvements would make it a '5' for me. First, if the glass frame/plate could hinge to fold down for easier storage. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Ashley
