I made a basic teleprompter with some scrap wood, glass and an iPad. Although it’s made from scrap materials, it’s extremely solid.
There are many DIY teleprompter designs on Youtube but most of them are very weak and would break easily. At first, I planned to make the teleprompter separate from the camera, requiring it’s own tripod which would be placed in front of the camera but then I figured it would be easier in the future if it was an all-in-one unit that held the ipad, glass and camera. So i can start shooting with just 10 seconds of setup time.
I was originally intending to 3D print an adjustable teleprompter that could be used with most phones and tablets but my 3D printer got jammed and I haven’t yet fixed it.
