    I’m trying to create an interrotron setup so I am buying two teleprompters. I’d like a fairly large one in front of my main camera, a Panasonic HMC-150, so the subject has a larger face to look at.

    Does anyone have any feedback on the quality of the following teleprompters?

    1 – https://www.lcd4video.com/products/Professional-Teleprompter-Kit-w%7B47%7D-10%22-LCD-Monitor.html

    2 – https://www.prompting.com/hardware

    3 – https://www.lowcostteleprompters.com/hardware/m1550.htm

    the first is an LCD 4, the second is electronic script prompting, and the 3rd is Stewart instruments.

    I have the LCD4 product. It is OK if that size works for you. It is made for smaller cameras (like yours and like my EX1 and NX5s and closer operation (not across a large studio, etc.)

    It is reasonably well made, but you may need to take it to a hardware store and spend another $3 on the proper hardware (bolts, washers, etc.) for your rig.

    The screen is nice, but somewhat “fiddly” to set up with its nearly-invisible touch controls and the little IR remote is not terribly reliable IME.

    I ended up using other software I liked better: PromptDog.

    I own a Stewart, it is nothing fancy but it works well enough for me.
