FAQ

- How to display the text on the teleprompter glass?

- In order to display the text on the glass, you need to have a smartphone or tablet and an application installed on it (e.g. "Simple Teleprompter" / "Pixaero" for Android or "Teleprompter with mirroring" / "Parrot Teleprompter" / "dv Prompter" for iOS). The text pasted into the app is mirrored, which means that a re-reflection onto the glass will display the text "correctly" again and ensures you a smooth reading. The scroll speed and font size can be adjusted optionally. Using a Bluetooth mouse, you are able to pause, rewind and fast-forward the text whenever you want. See illustration for visual description.

- Is my camera suitable?
- In general, the Black Fish can be used in combination with ANY camera.
If you have a small or middle-size camera, you do not need to buy an additional tripod. The extension bar can be easily attached to the camera holder and the lens of the attached camera will not collide with the glass.
If you have a large-size camera or objective, you will probably need an additional tripod (which is not included in the set).

- How to find out the correct adapter ring size for the Black Fish S?
- Most cameras have a filter thread, the front-most part of the lens. The filter diameter (Ø) is printed right there (possibly on the lens cover as well) and corresponds to the adapter ring size (see illustration).

- Are there any instructions for assembly?
- Yes. You will get them along with the article (see illustration).

- Which delivery service do you use and how long does the delivery take?
- We are located in Germany and use standard DHL shipping. As a rule, the processing time is no longer than 1 working day. Orders placed by 11am from Monday to Friday are usually dispatched the very same day. The shipping time depends on the destination point (up to 1 week to neighboring countries, 2 weeks on average inside the EU, at least 2 weeks to other countries); visit DHL for more information (only in German). If you live outside the EU, please take into account that you will probably have to pay customs duty.

- What kind of glass do you use?
- For the reflection of the text we use professional beam splitter glass (70/30). Thanks to a special transparent layer that does not have usual glass, this glass is able to mirror the text particularly clearly (for comparison click here). If you need beam splitter glass only, you can order it here (280*280*2.2 mm), here (264*204*2.2 mm), here (170*204*3.3 mm) or here (125*125*2.2 mm).

- What should I pay attention to when working with a teleprompter?
- In order to avoid reading eye movements from the viewer’s perspective, the distance between the prompter and the eyes should be adapted to the font size and width of the text. The smaller/wider the text on the projection device, the farther the speaker should stand from the prompter (see illustration for visual description). If you, for instance, use a smartphone horizontally, the distance should be at least 1.5 m. In case of a tablet, it has to be increased. In order to look as natural as possible on camera, do not forget to make slight body movements while reading, use your hands from time to time, avert your gaze while "thinking", sometimes speak faster, slower, louder, softer, sometimes pause, etc.

- Do you get any feedback?
- Yes, we do. You can read up on it on eBay and Amazon.
