If recording video with a DSLR is your setup, take advantage of the Look Lock System, which allows you to secure a smartphone above the camera lens on your choice of a 7-inch or 11-inch arm.

Teleprompter Apps

With some applications available today for iPad, iPhone or even an iPod Touch, you are able to have a professional teleprompter setup. Combining mobility with ‘not-breaking-the-bank’ and these solutions become an excellent solution.

We have decided to pick two different teleprompter app systems to highlight. ProPrompter and Telepromot+.
