This thing has saved my life. I script and record upwards of 2-3 videos per week, performing most without any form of rehearsal or memorization. The Parrot is easy to set up (make sure you get the correct adapter for your lens) and use. I strongly suggest NOT using their app - but using PromptSmart (iOS) which will listen to your performance and scroll the text in real time without the need of an assistant. I fan't fault them for their free app though - because the unit itself is amazing. I've been using this for a month so far with no problems! There is no hint of text picked up by the camera, and best yet - the Parrot seemingly doesn't cut the amount of light entering the camera.
Fair warning. This is a tight fit for an iPhone 6 in a battery case. The Parrot is made of plastic, and an overzealous stretch or squeeze could damage the unit!
This Teleprompter is fantastic as a low-cost portable teleprompter solution. I don't think you can be more than about 10 - 15 feet away from the camera when using this, otherwise you have trouble reading the print on the screen. Also, the app from Parrot is just terrible -- text scrolls way too fast. I used another app for my Galaxy S6 and it works well enough (there is room for innovation here).
For what it was designed for, it works fantastically. I wouldn't purchase this if you have poor eyesight because it is basically like trying to read text off your smartphone at 10 feet or so. Not the easiest if you don't have sharp vision.
In regards to build quality (which has been mentioned elsewhere) I seem to have received a sturdy unit. I don't see any issues with the build quality, but I could see how it could fall apart pretty easy if it gets banged hard. I just keep it secured in a padded laptop case while traveling along with some of my other more fragile gear...
I haven't even used the product as intended, and I already have a problem. I take the teleprompter out of the box and install it on my camera, and the very first time I go to use it, the glass falls out. Looks like this glass reflector it attached with some silicon adhesive. Well, this isn't constructed very well to have it fall out the second I use it. The glass fell on the floor and scratched. It's probably still usable, but very disappointed that I'll have to re-glue the glass in place. For the price, I wouldn't recommend this, due to the cheap construction.
