Product Description

The World's First Extendable Hand Held Tripod. Aim, hold and smile! Give your shots more R-E-A-C-H This new version of the Quikpod comes with a bigger mirror, and with legs, to use it as a standard tripod too. When you're traveling around, even if it's in your own backyard, it can be a hassle to have to ask someone else to snap a photo so that you can be in it. If you've managed to wander far enough off the beaten path there might not even be anyone around to ask or depending on what country you're in it could be downright dangerous to hand your camera to an unknown person. Now you can easily take your own photos without the help of a stranger. Quikpod is perfect for vacation/travel photos, shooting above crowds, underwater photos (using an underwater camera), and hard to see areas. Simply set the camera's self timer, push shutter button with lens facing you and extend the QuikPod. The QuikPod attaches easily to any camera with a standard tripod socket. Made from high quality polycarbonate and aluminum components for strength, durability and portability. Take your own photos and videos! * Attaches to all cameras and camcorders * Fits perfectly in your backpack or pocket * Include yourself easily and quickly in your own pictures or videos * Use it underwater with a water-proof camera * Use it for photo/video blogs * No support surface needed High quality polycarbonate and aluminum components for strength, durability and portability Built-in self-image positioning mirror Retracted size 190 mm (7.5 in.) Extended Size 470 mm (18.5 in.) Weight 100 grams (3.5 oz) Devices: Compact digital cameras and camcorders Tripod Mount: Universal 1/4-20 screw Maximum weight: 450 grams (16 oz) Package Includes: Quikpod, Tripod Legs, Pocket Clip, Hiking Clip, Wrist Strap, Carry Bag and User's Manual.

The new one didn't break but still flimsy.
Ning Jiang
We used it on vacation & loved it, since we were able to get photos of both of us together without handing our camera off to strangers to take the shots.
Pamela Darling
The material is not durable and feels very brittle.

I've had the Quik Pod for about 6 months and it really does work as advertised. Here are a few tips to help you use it more effectively:

* Leave the tripod legs attached all the time: This lets you extend your reach even more by folding the tripod legs inward and holding them instead of the handle when taking a shot. You can also quickly fold them out and set the Quik Pod on a table or the ground to take even longer shots of yourself (or simply to steady the camera so you can use a slower shutter speed, no flash, and/or lower ISO setting for more natural low-light shots).

* Make sure your camera is in the right focusing mode: Many cameras will immediately set the focus when you press the shutter button, even when the self-timer is on. This can lead to out-of-focus shots with the Quik Pod, since you must press the shutter button before extending the camera away from you. If your camera does this, try changing to "continuous focus" mode (which will often be set if you choose the camera's "Sports" scene mode) -- this will cause your camera to focus continually right up to the moment the shutter fires.

* More on focusing: You can also help keep your photos in focus without using continuous focus mode by setting a smaller aperture (higher "f-stop" number) using the camera's manual or "aperture priority" mode. Smaller apertures give you greater depth of field, which means that more of the picture will be in focus. I've taken quite a few shots with large apertures where the camera mistakenly focused on something in the background, so that my face was out of focus. Using smaller apertures helps prevent this problem and they also keep more of what's behind you in focus (which is desirable if there is something scenic in the background).

The second time I used the quik pod, when I tightened the swivel, the plastic broke. I feel like I just threw $25 bucks out of the window.

I had high hopes for the Quik Pod but was rather let down once it arrived. It works okay. Does what it says it will do. But that's about it.

I was hoping for a quality piece that one would be excited to receive as a gift and this just doesn't seem like the quality item I was hoping for. I'm referring not only to the looks of the Quik Pod but to its feel, as well.

It just looks and feels like a lightweight piece of cheap plastic that probably won't last too long. The levering action is not smooth. It's somewhat difficult to retract. It rattles around when you hold it. And when I set it up as a free-standing tripod the side weight of my average sized point-and-shoot digital camera nearly toppled the thing. Of course, the ball mount can easily adjust to any number number of positions so I can still align the camera for a proper shot but this bendy piece of plastic looks a bit like the Leaning Tower of Pisa trying to hold up just a bit more than it can handle.

Actually, the attachable legs are really the only thing in the whole package that even seem to me to be of decent quality. The various pieces of metal and aluminum seem well-crafted, well-fit, and solid. Why can't the main product, itself, have been manufactured in a similar way?

I wanted to be impressed but I'm not. Purchased one as a sample to decide whether to buy a handful more as gifts and I almost feel embarrassed just giving this one away. Also? It was my understanding that the Quik Pod Pro came not only with the attachable legs but with a bottle-top mount for mounting a camera to a water bottle. A novel idea that I was interested to try out. Perhaps I'm mistaken on this point but no such item was included in the pack I received.

The Quik Pod feels more like something I would pay $10 for than $30. Two stars, max.

I saw this product recommended in a magazine and thought I'd give it a try. While it's a good idea in theory, this product is flimsy and broke the second time I used it. I would not recommend it.

The QuickPod is a terrific concept, but the costruction of the actual product is exceedingly poor. It's made of some very brittle plastic that cracked the moment I attached it to my camera. I threw the QuickPod away and bought a steel Xshot($10 cheaper) to replace it.

Love this to death. Well worth the money - it's small, compact and easy to use. High "wow" factor when pulling out this gadget in front of your friends. Fun to take pics of yourself with friends. I am glad I bought this!

Never again will you have to ask a stranger to snap your photo at some exotic destination. QuickPod at arm's length and the self-timer on hour control literally let you put yourself in the picture. There's even a cool little mirror so you can make sure you're in the picture.

This very clever design weighs a few ounces and with the accessory kit clips to your belt. The accessory clip includes a little set of tripod legs.

You simply need to get one of these. With a lightweight (under 500 grams / 15 ounce) still or digital camera, it lets you put yourself in the picture anywhere. You can also use it to get shots over the crowd or behind you. It's great for bloggers who want to post more interesting stills and videos.

QuikPod is one of those "why didn't I think of that?" inventions and is incredibly useful. You'll wind up buying one or two for yourself and as gifts. In short, a great product.

Jerry
