      I am an independent Director of Production, which means, I do EVERYTHING in production, including running prompter. The Ultralight for iPad is just that..ULTRA-LIGHT! I use it with my EX-3 with Sachler head and hotpod, and it works great! I can even go handheld with my iPad scrolling at a pre-set speed, and still move and groove! Great product!

      PRO's:
      -very lightweight
      -wireless control with iPhone/with software I purchased

      CON's:
      -no instructions
      -tight fit of iPad into hardware
      -covers focus and iris controls

      I work on a small budget, so I used this promoter with our HDV camera, for studio and remote work.

      The product came with no instructions, so it took a little while to configure hardware with our iPad and camera, plus there are parts that I still don't know how they would be used, but I got the parts I needed configured eventually with our camera and tripod.

      This product does not add any weight to the tripod, so 'run-and-gun' ENG shooting is very easy.

      Because of the small size, I have to push my Canon XH-G1 all the way forward so that I don't see the edges of the glass frame in my shot, so then the cloth hood that goes around the lens covers my focus and iris controls, which does slow me down a little.

      The product came with no software, but I shopped around and found software that others had suggested for $14-"Teleprompt+". Works amazing easy, once you get it configured right, and I can control it via blue tooth with my iPhone. So the talent could actually hold iPhone and control it themselves, or just roll it at a certain speed. I can change font size with my phone, but I can't edit text, except on the iPad. With the large size font, the small glass only allows 4 or 5 words on the screen at a time, so it might be tricky to read at that size.

      We took this product on streets of Chicago to shoot on a sunny day, and the talent could read it, but from no more than 12 feet away due to the small size of the glass and brightness of the iPad (turned all the way up).

      We have not used it in the studio yet, but should work great for size and clarity at that distance we work in the studio configuration.

      At our location, we don't do everything from prompter, so this works well for displaying format/rundown sheet, then used as prompter for 25-40% of the time for full scripts.

      For the price, it does the job we need it to do.

      Comments about Prompter People Ultralight iPad Teleprompter:

      Purchased this teleprompter as a last minute decision to video tape our executive director for a fundraising video. So, needless to say we were trying to keep costs down. We had some trouble assembling it and had to search online for directions, but once we got it together it worked great. Could have used some better directions. But B&H got it to us on time and as always are a pleasure to work with!

          Just bought this and haver used it once for a full day shoot. So far I've been pleasantly surprised by this. It doesn't have much in the way of instructions, but its pretty straightforward. I bought prompter+ for my ipad rather than the prompter people's software and prompter+ is great.

            Comments about Prompter People Ultralight iPad Teleprompter:

            I use this prompter in a small green screen setup. Subject is about 5 feet from the camera, and the prompter works perfectly. The only issue I had is with the remote and the software that is listed on this site and comes with the prompter. The remote didn't seem to work with anything, and I couldn't even find the app as listed. However, if you have an iPhone, the iCue and iCue remote app work beautifully. You can adjust the size and speed of your script very easily, you can go backward, forward, pause, etc., and you have as much control as you'll need. I was set up and rolling within 20 minutes of purchasing. Can't go wrong for the money. HOWEVER, I do have it mounted on a tripod and would think this would be very heavy for a camera man to lug in the field.

            This small unit really does the job well. I use it with the Ipad 4, although there is a little wiggle room it does fit. You may want to secure with a small piece of foam or even a rag if you are hand holding your rig.

            My clients primarily range from small to medium size businesses from internal internet communications to broadcast commercials. I needed an easy to use, affordable prompter and this one has delivered. I use it with my JVC ProHD 110 and the camera sled accommodates the longer lens nicely and would adjust for smaller cameras easily. Its nice to know that as I move on to a newer camera this year my prompter will fit it. If you already own an IPad this is a No Brainer! And get the remote so you can scroll like a pro. The whole package has impressed my clients and already led to some more work. Well worth the money.

              This product has been a great way to imporve our corporate videos. Allows people who feel uncomfortable with out a script to work looking right into the lens through the Teleprompter.
              A must have for anyone doing any talking head videos.

                Its great to have a little teleprompter that gets me through shoots where the talent needs help. It seems to be readable up to about 10 feet. I used it on a green screen shoot capturing full body shots and the talent did not complain. I could easily adjust the script, size, speed etc very quickly. The only hassle is focusing which comes with the territory. Would be good for run and gun as well but the focus issue will have to be attended to. I downloaded the app iCue from PrompterPeople and it did what I needed.

                        This thing made money for me on my first shoot. Working with a Canon 5D on a Red Rock rig, shooting multiple execs speaking into camera. The ability to shoot a walk-and-talk, with a prompter, hand-held, in Time Square was ridiculous. Execs loved it.

                        A couple of things you should know before you buy this...

                        1. The normal IPad Teleprompter does not work with ENG cameras unless you get a longer sled, which costs abo. $200.

                        2. Without the longer sled it will not hold a 7D with a battery pack...but you can jerry-rig it.

                        3. As a negative...the screws don't seem to tighten all the way, so there is some movement.

                        Having said that, after looking at other really expensive teleprompters, this is a sweet little deal, very portable and easy to use.

                        Comments about Prompter People Ultralight iPad Teleprompter:

                        I am an independent Director of Production, which means, I do EVERYTHING in production, including running prompter. The Ultralight for iPad is just that..ULTRA-LIGHT! I use it with my EX-3 with Sachler head and hotpod, and it works great! I can even go handheld with my iPad scrolling at a pre-set speed, and still move and groove! Great product!
