    Interested in incorporating through-the-lense teleprompters.
    The larger designs, which I really like, are beyond my budget.
    Listed below are two inexpensive systems. I have these
    questions for EFP applications:

    Will I see ghosting and if so under what circumstances?

    How much light gathering will be lost passing through this
    lense system... insignificant or poses some practical
    limitations?

    How far off-axis limitations (lf & rt) are there in viewing
    the projections?

    Any comments about the manufacturers' support?

    Teleprompter software, is the CPU process power
    requirement low enough as to not impede the simultaneous
    capture of the camera's sound and video image recording
    (Vegas/current practice). Also, can software run
    unassisted?

    According to the third paragraph it's a 70/30 mirror, so that would be a 30-
    percent loss. Not too bad given the sensitivity of modern cameras.
