Glide Gear F2F Overview

Shoot warmer, more intimate interviews with the Face-2-Face Hybrid from Glide Gear. Alternatively, slide in your tablet or smartphone and you have yourself a complete teleprompter. The Face-2-Face is both an interview tool and a teleprompter in one.

The Face-2-Face features a periscope design that allows the interviewee to look directly into the camera lens while speaking. A mirror reflection of the interviewer appears on the beamsplitter glass, while the camera sits right behind the glass. So while your interviewee is speaking to a reflection of you, he or she will also be staring right at the camera. At the same time, you will also see a reflection of the interviewee. The outcome is a comfortable face-to-face conversation and resulting eye-contact between the interview subject and the audience. Normally, the interviewee speaks about 10° off-center from the lens, but the Face-2-Face ensures eye-level communication. No longer do you have to ask your subject to look into the camera.

The Face-2-Face comes with everything you need to use it. It has tripod mount holes and integrated 15mm rod ports on the bottom, and comes with a pair of rods and rod-mount camera riser. There's enough space for most cameras to fit, from DSLR-type models to larger ones like the C300. But the riser itself also offers tripod mount holes, so you can use it to attach larger cameras separately on a second tripod.

Also included is a tablet mount adapter for inserting tablets and phones and using the Face-2-Face as a prompter. The adapter supports mobile devices measuring between 3 and 9" wide when you hold them in portrait mode. Switching to teleprompter mode is simple — just place your device inside and the glass will reflect its screen. You can use any prompting software supported by your device. A carry case is also supplied for transporting everything.

The Face-2-Face also has 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes on top for attaching accessories such as LED lights, providing for a complete interview and prompting system.

question

How does this system work with mounting a larger camera system to it (like an URSA Pro)? Will it work?
Asked by: Anonymous
The device has a 15mm Rod Support system included. Rather than mounting a large camera to this system, you could mount this system to the rigging you have for your Ursa Mini Pro just as long as that rigging has 15mm Rods. For example you should be able to rig this up to to B&H # CAMEURSAMIN2. https://bhpho.to/2jEyTgb

question

Can it be used with the interviewer sitting on both the operator and dumb side of the camera?
Asked by: Jeremey
This is meant for the interviewer to be on the right or dumb side. It would require extensive, warranty-voiding modification by the user to work the opposite way.

question

How does this unit transport? Are tools required to partially assemble/breakdown? Product highlights says carry case included, but none is shown.
Asked by: Andrew H.
We do not see this breaking down and would go with the idea that the carrying case will be adequate for it's purpose.

question

1. Does this include a shroud to block light around the camera lens?2. Do you have an image of the case, or can you provide a description (e.g. hard case/soft case, plastic/metal, dimensions)?
Asked by: Bob
Yes . . . It blocks light very well and will cover some small prosumer cameras completely
