Eyedirect Folding Mark E overview

  • 1Description

A flexible way of maintaining the eye contact with on-camera talent/interview subjects with your camera, the EyeDirect Folding Mark E is more than just a portable teleprompter that feeds your on-camera subject lines to read; it also provides a way for your on-camera subject to maintain eye contact with the interviewer while looking directly at your camera. Suitable for use with cameras from DSLR or Mirrorless up to full-size camcorders or digital cinema cameras with large lenses.

As a prompter, the Folding Mark E supports iPads/tablets up to 7 x 10" and 3/8" thick (neither tablet nor prompting software is included.) It features a 50/50 beamsplitter that allows the talent to see the text without it showing up on your image. Removing the iPad/tablet is where the design of the Folding Mark E shines, as it allows your on-camera talent to look directly at the camera, yet see the face the interviewer behind the camera, or someone off to the side. Or you can also insert a picture or headline into your subject's eyeline without having them look off camera to see it.

The Folding Mark E is exactly the same as the EyeDirect Mark II, except that it is foldable and packs into a smaller size for transport and storage. It allows you set up with the interviewer behind the camera and off to either side, and still have the on-camera talent make eye contact with the interviewer. Plus, you no longer have to worry about the interviewer leaning into the shot. Your on-camera subject maintains focus and eye contact with the interviewer while looking directly into you lens, and thus making a strong connection with the audience.
The unit can be set up so that the interviewer can sit on either side of the camera without changing the functionality of the unit. This allows you to frame and compose the shot as you normally would, without compromises.
The wing features 40° of lateral adjustability and 35° of tilt adjustment. This allows the interviewer to find a comfortable position and still make eye contact with the on-camera subject.
Removing the wing allows you to install the tablet accessory, which in turns enables the unit to be used as a teleprompter.
The Folding Mark E mounts on an 18" long plate that mounts onto your tripod. This allows you to balance your system using a variety of cameras from DSLR and Mirrorless to ENG or digital cinema cameras, as well as using prime or zoom lenses.
Made primarily from ABS plastic the Folding Mark E is a lightweight system that features a 50/50 beamsplitter, and can be used as either as a teleprompter using the included tablet accessory, or an optical device that allows your subject to look at the interviewer (or other person) yet maintain eye contact with your camera's lens.
The unit supports tablets from 5.5 x 9" to 7 x 10".
The Folding Mark E features a 160mm opening on the back for lenses. It includes a rubber donut that can be used with lenses with an outside diameter from 52 to 80mm.
An included DSLR riser block enables using DSLR or Mirrorless cameras.
You can adjust the height of the unit approximately 4.5" to center it on your camera.

    Eyedirect Folding Mark E reviews

    Folding Mark E is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Someone should invent … oh�wait, they did! I was a little nervous ordering this as B&H says "This item is nonreturnable", but it is everything promised.� Took me about a half hour (with distractions) to assemble the first time on set, using the instructional video on Vimeo.� Have to say though, for people who can invent such a well-designed product, the lack of included instructions is puzzling. Anyway, the interview we used this for went flawlessly and both myself and the interviewee quickly�got used to looking at each other through the mirror.�� Compared to the old way of setting up 2 prompters, this is easier and better.
