Combining a dedicated Wireless Remote with the Parrot Teleprompter V2, this B&H Kit offers an even simpler workflow with the already ultra compact, highly mobile smartphone prompter.

The Parrot V2 works with pretty much any phone and any camera. It is designed to easily attach onto your camera lens using included filter thread adapters, and it comes with an iOS/Android prompting app that syncs up with the wireless remote for efficient single-user operation.

  • Parrot Teleprompter V2

    The Parrot Teleprompter V2, an improved follow-up to the original Parrot, is an ultra compact starter prompter for your smartphone. Designed to attach directly to the filter thread of your camera lens, it's compatible with almost all cameras, including DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and even small camcorders. This newer version features an enhanced design and upgraded material of construction, and includes everything you need to get started right out of the box.

    The Parrot V2 measures approximately 4 x 4.5" and weighs only 0.4 lb. It is highly mobile, and thanks to front and back covers that protect from dust and scratches to the glass, it can be carried in pretty much any case or bag as one self-enclosed, portable unit. This newer version has much more efficient slide-and-lock covers instead of the older snap-on type.

    The Parrot V2 sets up in just seconds. Using one of nine included filter thread adapters it attaches directly to your camera lens. Just mount your camera on a tripod or stand, screw the thread adapter onto the camera lens, and then attach the Parrot V2 onto the adapter. The Parrot V2 features a slot on the rear that slides right onto the adapter. When this is done, the adapter also blocks out all light in the rear, as it fully covers up the rear. (The slot on the rear of the Parrot is also the same one that the rear cover secures into when packing the Parrot away for storage or transport.)

    The filter thread adapters are included in sizes from 49 - 82mm diameter, and between them are compatible with almost every lens out there. Each one has the size and diameter symbol marked on it so you can easily match it up with lenses, as most lenses have the same type of marking on them.

    With the Parrot V2 mounted, all that's left is installing your phone. To do this, simply pull down on the bottom section of the Parrot's four-sided frame, and place your phone on it. The bottom section is normally flush with the rest of the frame, but it is spring-loaded and pushes down a bit to make room for your phone. Almost every common smartphone is compatible, as long as the screen is between 3.5 - 5.7" diagonally. Even larger phones will fit, but the mirror measures 5.7" diagonally and will not be able to fully capture larger screens.

    The Parrot V2 comes with a free-download iOS and Android prompting app that's easy to use and offers various ways of uploading your scripts, including via Dropbox. Furthermore, the app works with the optional Parrot Wireless Remote, allowing for even easier single-user operation. Depending on the font size you select in the app, the Parrot glass generally offers a 3-12 ft reading range.

    The Parrot V2 is made of lightweight but durable ABS polycarbonate that doesn't scratch very easily, and includes a quality 70/30 glass mirror. The mirror is held by mechanical clips instead of integrated as in the previous version, so it can be replaced if need be.

    Whether for YouTube videos or other productions, the Parrot Teleprompter V2 is designed to help you achieve proper eye contact when speaking in front of a camera, without errors in delivery, and preferably with just one take, all in a highly portable system.

V2 & Wireless Remote Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good affordable portable Teleprompter for YouTube bloggers. I use this on a Sony AX33 camcorder with iPhone 7+ for YouTube blogs. You must download both Dropbox and the Parrot apps (IOS or Android) to your phone, and you have to be close to the camera lens (6 feet max) to read text which is adjustable in size. The remote adjusts scrolling speed, text size and scroll back and comes with a disc battery, not AA. You have to drag .txt. files from Dropbox into the Parrot app folder to appear in the teleprompter, or you can use Siri or similar to narrate text into the app. Comes with many filter size adapter rings to fit most any lens thread. Good phone customer service too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, compact, effective I supported these guys on Kickstarter. My unit was reasonably well packed, the big dent in the box didn't seem to damage the unit. The first thing you notice it that it is small. It's very light and easy to use, screw in the filter ring (no glass, just a step adapter) to your camera and slide the unit onto your lens or camcorder. Download the free app and make a few minor adjustments if your phone is the wrong size, like margins, and away you go. Easy. The app has everything you need, including font size, scroll speed, and so on. There's no light leak from the back, unlike the curtain types. Despite the small screen, I found it easy to read, and, of course, you are staring right into the camera lens. You don't absolutely have to have toe optional remote, but I would go ahead and order it so you don't have to walk back and forth if you want to change something, like the speed of the text. If you haven't used a teleprompter before, this is a good way to get started. Did I mention that it is small?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Got exactly what I expected! What's great: If you go to the website and watch their video, you will know exactly what you're going to get.� Had this up and running in less than an hour. It took that long only because I had never set up a dropbox and had to learn how to sync it with my pc and smart phone, but the directions provided by Parrot were spot on. We've already used this making a video and the subject loved it. What a time-saver!� Aren't so great: Knocked down one star only because the pull-down clamp to hold the phone is awkward to pull while mounted on the camera lens because of the need to support the lens at the same time. Need a third hand! Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use Teleprompter This is a great device that you should own if you shoot YouTube style videos or have any desire to create a better connection with your audience. I love how I can write copy on my computer, save it to dropbox as a .txt file and access the script on my iOS device. I's fairly easy to use, while using the remote takes some practice and isn't very intuitive. But practice is best. The set up on the camera couldn't be easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for basic face-to-camera videos I am extremely pleased with this teleprompter. I shoot basic face-to-camera videos for YouTube, and this teleprompter is compact and easy-to-use. It does not block the flip-out screen of my DSLR when in use, which is one of the reasons I selected it. It comes with an abundance of adapters for different lenses. It is a bit tricky to get your phone into the clamp, but is easier with practice. The free app is basic but effective; I copy my script text from the Google Docs app. I also purchased the wireless remote. It is a bit confusing, as the controls are counter-intuitive. I have not yet figured out how to rewind the text with the remote, only pause it. For the price, this is amazing. It's great for emerging creators, or if you'd like to travel with it. It's so compact; I plan on bringing it on hikes when I shoot videos outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a journalism classroom I'm a high school journalism adviser and this year my students have added broadcast. This kit was an easy and affordable way to elevate the quality of our videos. For the first few videos, students had a hard time maintaining eye contact with the camera and were often looking down at their script. Because the scripts were often finished just minutes before filming, there is no time to memorize. The Parrot V2 Teleprompter allows the students to maintain eye contact with the camera while reading the script. The device fits perfectly on our Cannon DSLR that we use. He have a camcorder for filming as well, but we still need to purchase an adapter ring for the prompter fit (odd-sized adapter rings are available to purchase individually the Parrot website). The opening for the phone is good-sized. It fits my iPhone 6 easily, even with a bulky Otter Box case. The wireless remote is ok, but not great. It has several buttons that are frankly useless for a prompter remote; I do not need something that can control music on my phone. Additionally, the scrolling is not necessarily intuitive with the remote and has a somewhat steep learning curve. I'd give the prompter itself five stars, but the remote only four.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of on-the-fly scripts? Buy this. An AMAZING product. I only have one small caveat. Really only worth half a star deduction really but what can you do. This thing is slick. Very portable, very solid, and the iPhone app excellent. Shooting at just over 35mm on my full frame camera (Sony a99ii), I don't see any of the box itself in frame. It even fits in the empty space of my bag next to my drone remote. I work in real estate, and we have to shoot lots of talent (realtor) on the fly, introducing a house with lots of specific numbers, so this is perfect. So why the missing star? We got the remote, which in terms of speed control is excellent. But the connectivity with my up-to-date iPhone 6s is weird. I have to completely forget the device every time I want to re-connect. Also, it registers as a keyboard on my phone, so the on screen keyboard won't pop up as long as it's connected, which is problematic for adjusting the script.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised I am making educational videos in my home studio and there portability of this teleprompter is great and allows me to be more mobile. Definitely worth it if you are on a budget and looking for quality
