    Description

    A fully usable teleprompter setup for large screens up to about 13". Works with lenses down to 20mm (full-frame equivalent) or possibly even wider!
    It uses a standard 15mm LWS rod system for flexibility and strength.
    The screen used is a salvaged 11.6" panel with a breakout board, but you can use any display that works for you or even an iPad with it.

    Materials and methods

    295x295mm 3mm polystyrene sheet (acrylic works, too)
    Roughly 400x400mm piece of black cloth
    A handful of M4x18mm screws and washers (or equivalent imperial size)
    A handful of M4 threaded inserts (or equivalent imperial size)
    One 1/4"-20 screw for the camera quick release (coinslot preferred)
    2x 300mm 15mm dia LWS rods (carbon fiber or aluminum) http://go.toms3d.org/15mmRods
    Base plate (between Manfrotto plate and rod clamps) http://go.toms3d.org/rodBase

    Print 7-8 clamps, other parts just 1x.
    The LCD_EL parts are only required if you use a salvaged LCD + breakout board.
    Use black filament at least for the "mirror" piece.
    Insert threaded inserts into the appropriate spots.
