A teleprompter is a great tool for shooting large amount of text, or if you need to have very specific information that you’re not able to memorize. Essentially, you need the camera behind the teleprompter, a teleprompter, and also a screening device, such as an iPad, or in this case my Samsung. Let me go ahead and set this up and show you how it works.

A teleprompter works by reflecting the image off of your iPad into the glass. The cameras behind the glass is enabled to shoot through or see through it without the text showing up. To give you a better example, let me put the hood on, and you’ll see the true effect. Now this teleprompter is fully set up. I have the tablet functioning, I have the camera behind the tablet, and I have the hood on so it’s blocking all the light, making it really easy to see the text. The only thing you need to do is add the text to your document, and you’re ready to rock and roll. By this way, this teleprompter was only $135 on Amazon.
