The Awe-Inspiring Selfie Stick
on August 5, 2014
What I Like: This thing gets so much attention wherever you go! I love that I can take it on vacations with my boyfriend and we don't have to bother other tourists to take a picture for us, and we can get the full background in the picture. I also really like that we have control over what part of the background you get in the picture (vs getting blurry photos taken by strangers with crappy lighting). It's small enough that it fits in my purse without taking up too much room, it's just a bit awkward shaped with the mount on top. It's nice that the top is just a standard size screw mount, so if you want to use a different camera with it instead of a phone you have that option.
What I Don't Like: I wasn't a fan of the phone mount that came with it, but it was free so I have no complaints. The top part of the mount is spingy and adjusts to phone size while the side piece just kind of slides out to fit the phone you're using. It's plastic so it gives me the feeling it will break at a moment's notice. Also, the part that screws on the mount is a little unstable. I found myself constantly trying to tighten it and never feeling like it was perfectly tight. It's not too big of a problem as I just adjust and tighten it for every use.
Tips: Get yourself a bluetooth remote if you plan on using this with your phone! It makes taking pictures even more of a breeze, plus the monopod has a tiny loop on the wriststrap where you can nicely attach a remote.
