The Little Prompter requires a camera to record and a smart device with a teleprompter app to display and scroll the text. Your smartphone can actually function as either. To use a smart device–such as an iphone–as the recording device, you’d also need to purchase a holder or tripod attachment such as the Neewer White Cellphone Holder or the Ivation Universal Tripod Stand Mount for Smartphones. (Both are available on Amazon.) Below are a couple pictures of what it might look like. My favorite configuration is still with a DSLR as the camera and my iphone running the teleprompter app, but if you’ve got an old smart phone around, you could put two smart phones to work to make some flawless video!
Josh Hicks is a camera guru. I’ve never met him, but I’ve now seen some of his tech reviews and he’s a bright and talented guy. He unboxes, demonstrates, reviews, modifies, and uses, the Little Prompter in about 8 minutes. If you’re a video pro and debating about a teleprompter for under $200, you gotta watch his review.
(Note: The Little Prompter does work well with any pro and pro-sumer camera–even if the weight shifts backwards a little–but this gave Josh a chance to highlight his impressive 3D design skills.)
Santa is often one of the first to discover great gifts–and this year is no exception! Santa ordered up a Little Prompter! Even better . . . he gave it a 5 star review on Amazon! He wrote a a number of nice things, including: I’ve been creating Videos from Santa since 2007, and I’ve tried everything I could think of to make them better and produce them faster . . . in less than 5 minutes, the Little Prompter took me from 11 years as an amateur to a real professional.” For the rest of Santa’s great review–and for several more, visit Amazon, and click on those 5 Stars.
