Parrot Teleprompter Parrot V2 Reviews

So far so good

The V2 is a great teleprompter and works as advertised. It won't be the last teleprompter I buy but it is my first. The multi-rings are a great addition. Also, the remote control comes in handy. The software/app is good but I did download an app that works even better.

Great for the price.

The app is easy-to-use. The screen is a little on the small side, so I wouldn't put it too far away from you as you might need something larger, but it works for my purposes at 4-5 feet.

I love this thing!

I had previously purchased a much larger unwieldy teleprompter that was difficult to set up and take down, so the end result was that I never used it. This thing is perfect! Less than 2 minutes to set up and you're rolling. I don't however use the remote or their prompter software. I had previously purchased PromptSmartPro which scrolls the text based on your voice so you didn't have to have a set speed at which to read the text. It would keep up with however slow or fast you read. That combined with the Parrot Teleprompter is a match made in heaven. For the price and features, you can't beat it!

I was reluctant, but.....

I was a bit concerned when I read that you have to use around a 30 - 35 mm lens to prevent vignetting, especially since I just bought a 16- 35mm, but it really isn't a huge problem. I just had to move the camera back a bit. The product works great. I use the parrot app along with it. You can adjust the speed of the script right from the included remote. Overall I'm happy. Not sure I would be as happy if I paid full retail, but with it being on the daily deals page it was worth. Overall a pretty good product

Cheep, flimsy but useful

I was very skeptical about this product but decided to take a chance. This kit is light and compact to take with you when traveling or going on a hike. The set up is easy and its small size makes it less conspicuous when shooting in public. Depending on the lens the widest focal distance possible is about 30-35mm before you'll experience shading of a part of the image. This is sufficient for head-shots and allows the talent to be closer to the camera for better viewing of the script. Great little kit for teleprompter delivery shots on a run.

Works well at a great price point.

this is an intelligently designed solution for anyone who needs to read from a teleprompter for whatever reason - certainly made for YouTube videos but also for corporate videos, as well. It's quick and easy to set up, the hardware is well-built, and it generally works well. The only downsides are that it is a small format - for use with a smartphone - but that's also it's superpower - and you really have to subscribe to the app in order to have it work properly. So as long as your eyesight is relatively good, or you can place your camera is close enough, you should have no problem. It's great (and essential) that you can control the speed of the scroll either on the phone or on the included remote. Overall, it works well for what I do and it's an absolute bargain solution.

So far So good

Asked by: Mike
It should being that the device is not camera specific. The different sized rings screw onto the lens like a filter and then the hood attaches to the ring. It works very well. The only one drawback is that you can't really use a case on your phone.

Unfortunately Parrot Teleprompter V2 Kit by Padcaster only offer uo to 82mm adapter ring. If you own a Rokinon Xeen cine lens the front diameter is 114mm, even if we had a step down ring to adjust the 82mm adapter the vignetting will be inevitable.
