Little Prompter, Compact Personal Teleprompter for Video Production

Shooting videos where you look straight into a camera are way better than reading a document off screen, or having to memorize a script. This teleprompter works with your smartphone, and we like that it clips onto a laptop screen, works with iPhone or Android teleprompter apps, and can accomodate small DSLR and mirrorless cameras as well.
