    Comments about CobraCrane Teleprompter Kit for iPad 2nd & 3rd Gen:

    I needed a low budget solution for shooting short, tightly scripted videos. This model works well with an iPad, and I saved enough time with it in the first few days to more than cover the cost. Just a few notes: the mirror wasn't marked, and it was VERY hard to tell which side was coated. I shot with it both ways and couldn't see any difference. I've been told that they are changing the packaging to make it easy to know which side is which.

    I don't like the way the camera mounts to the sled with a single bolt - it's way too easy for things to get out of alignment, especially if you need to use both height adjustment blocks. Also, CobraCrane sells the replacement glass at a low price point, which makes me question why a simple sled and hardware cost so much? The glass isn't held in by anything but gravity, so it almost fell out the first time I moved the camera. For this price it really should come with some kind of case to keep everything together and safe when not in use.

      Comments about CobraCrane Teleprompter Kit for iPad 2nd & 3rd Gen:

      I run a small production company and have occasional need for a teleprompter so I didn't want to spend a lot of money but needed good quality. This is the perfect solution.I have an iPad Air, and even though the holder is designed for earlier (wider) iPads, my iPad is in a Kensington keyboard case so the combined effective width makes it a perfect fit into the holder. The unit comes with a rubber case for the older iPads to make them fit perfectly.The glass is excellent. Great reflectivity making the iPad script easy to read (I use Teleprompt+ app - $[$]and also excellent) and the camera "sees" through it with no reflection or image degradation.I looked into buying my own glass and making it myself, but the beam-splitter glass alone would cost $450 (with minumum size requirements and dealers markup). And don't even consider using typical "mirrored glass" to make your own. The image passed through to the camera will be way too dark and the camera will also see some of the prompter script. This teleprompter has the professional glass and a professional look. It's worth it. And your clients *will* notice the difference.You just have to be sure the cloth hood is tight (easy to do) so it doesn't sag into the view of the lens. I considered adding a small piece of black poster board between the top of the glass frame and the top of the lens hood to prevent any sag. But once you tighten up the cloth, it isn't any problem at all.It takes just a little time to set up and position the camera in just the right position. But once you have it in place, it can be used on a tripod, jib, hand-held or shoulder rig. I haven't tried yet, but I believe it will also work on my Glidecam rig - just have to adjust the weights for perfect balance.I sent a note to my clients that I now have this capability and many replied with excitement how much that will be useful as it opens up possibilities and definitely improves production value. Looking straight into the camera with a teleprompter is so much more professional (and the talent looks better) than reading something next to the lens.If you have an iPad, this teleprompter is perfect without costing much. I am really glad I finally got this.

      Some assembly required.

      By Trustfire

      from Columbus

      Comments about CobraCrane Teleprompter Kit for iPad 2nd & 3rd Gen:

      Without instructions and correct hardware. I had to remove the plastic from the plexiglass tripod plates, camera lift plates, 70/30 glass. I had to stick the Velcro on the frame. I had to figure out which threading each screw went to. I believe I was suppose to get three different length camera thread screws for each camera lift plate, but they are required to hold the glass frame in place, which is not adjustable. But I'm happy because the angle is perfectperfect to view the whole screen. I spent another $9 on hardware. This allowed me to use the two threaded tripod mounts on the bottom of my Sony HDR-AX20000. This eliminates the accidental pans of camera movement. I also used three screws to mount the bottom plate to my tripods quick release plate to eliminate the accidental pans of camera movement between the tripod and teleprompter. It's a very secure now. After about two man hours.

        Comments about CobraCrane Teleprompter Kit for iPad 2nd & 3rd Gen:

        I use this teleprompter to record video from everyday normal people in a school district. The teleprompter helps them relax and focus on what they are reading rather than the process of being recorded. Very helpful. This teleprompter is made to work with any imaginable camera out there and its design reflects that concept. It doesn't lock down as tightly as I would like it to but it does accommodate my various rigs rather well. It is adjustable and flexible and does exactly what you expect it to do.

        This teleprompter comes with a high-quality carrying case not mentioned in the specs that I recall. It truly protects the gear while transporting and stores everything nicely within it. Overall it is a great piece of gear for the price. My only suggestion would be some way to better lock down the camera to the stand.
