Glide Gear TMP100 teleprompter review: speak into the camera with confidence

This teleprompter promises pro-grade performance at a mid-range price, but does it deliver? Our Glide Gear TMP100 review answers that question.

Digital Camera World Verdict

The Glide Gear TMP100 is my favourite teleprompter at a mid-range price. Its robust all-metal construction, large glass size for easy script reading, and blackout hood for minimising camera visibility makes it feel like a professional-grade choice. While not the cheapest option, the TMP100 delivers excellent performance and functionality at a reasonable price point.

Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

Whenever most of us speak to camera, whether that's for a livestream or recording a video, we want to have a script to follow, or at least some notes; no one wants to hear our ums, ahs and ers. 

But if you're constantly glancing down at your notepad, or off to the side at your laptop, you'll come across as distracted and unprofessional. More to the point, you won't be able to create that instant engagement with an audience that comes with looking them straight in the eye.

Glide Gear TMP 50

If you prefer shooting with a smartphone rather than a camera, then you may prefer the Glide Gear TMP 50.  It's just as well made as its bigger sibling the TMP100, but it's more compact and collapsible, and cheaper to boot. Glide Gear says it'll work with some smaller tablets too.
