        Comments about ikan 8" On-Camera Widescreen Teleprompter:

        I used the product to film a corporate video. The teleprompter worked well with non-experienced prompt readers because of the easy speed adjustments. I used my pc with the provided software, which had some bugs at first, but after updating the software from their website it was smooth saling.

        It is not the most advanced device, but it did the job well on a budget.

          Comments about ikan 8" On-Camera Widescreen Teleprompter:

          I've been using another "thru the glass" teleprompter product for the last five years, and the Ikan PT1000 beats it hands-down. The other is bulky, heavy and requires an extra bracket for the tripod. The Ikan is light-weight and I can mount it on my video camera in just two-minutes.
          The screen is perfect for on-location shots as well as studio work. The software is really easy to use also. Ten thumbs up!

            For the price-point, you probably can't get better than this lightweight, portable teleprompter set-up.
            Resolution could be a bit better, but again, at the pricepoint, it is a great piece of equipment. Love the fact that the rig can still be hand-held with this on it.

            Comments about ikan 8" On-Camera Widescreen Teleprompter:

            I needed a teleprompter for a video project and was pleased to find the Ikan unit at a very reasonable price relative to traditional systems. I bought the wide screen version since I'm using it with my Sony EX1 and wanted to be able to use it as a field monitor as well. The software installed easily on my Mac. Uploading text was easy and all the electrical connections are simple and obvious.

            I did find the mounting system to be a bit cumbersome but that's not surprising since the unit has to work with a wide variety of cameras. I wound up mounting it on a small tripod right underneath the lens rather than mounting in on the camera above the lens.

            My subject found the text easy to read from a distance of ten feet or so and the speed adjustments were adequate.

            As a field monitor, it's only standard definition but hey, it's a fraction of what you'd pay for an HD field monitor. Again, color and brightness/contrast controls were adequate for what it is.

            I did have a tech support question and called the company and even though the problem was with my setup on the Sony (which Sony tech support helped me solve), the people at Ikan were friendly, caring, accessible and helpful. Always a good sign in my book.

            I'd say for field work or occasional studio work, it's an excellent value. If you're doing this all the time and have a good HD field monitor you would probably want something more sophisticated, but one advantage of an LCD teleprompter is not having to shoot through a mirror which aside from being an expensive piece of glass, it's just one more thing to effect image quality.

            The PT1000W has earned a slot in my Pelican case.
