Looking for 10" SteadiPrompt rental. Anyone have one?

I know many folks put an LCD above the lens, but I don't think production would go for it.

If they offer you the ipad unit go with it as I have used it several times and it works really well .

The feed has to come from the truck, and go to two cameras at the same time, so the iPad option is out. (although it would be nice if that would work!)
I have a call in to Sharon.

To be honest, the mirror sucks. you cant get wide shots anymore so a wideangle is out. Also the glass flares all over on a steadi. Your better of with an 7 inch lcd above your lens. If your a few feet away there is no way you can see there reading above the lens. Test it to see for yourself. Its my only way of carrying a prompter

Thanks Job for the advice. We're going to chat with production and let them know the advantages of the "over the lens" version. I'd rather do that as well.
Is there a monitor that you guys would recommend? I'm guessing having one that has batteries, or could be powered from the sled would be nice?

Rob, I'd need it by the 11th, and I can send it back on the 14th (or 15th, depending on how quick you need it back) -- I'll PM you my contact info in case you need it.

so how did this job end up? Did you get a hold of a steadiprompt?
or did you go with the over the lens LCD route?
