INTRODUCING: SELFIE STICK; AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHERS TAKING PICTURES OF THEMSELVES USING 'ARM EXTENDERS'


 Are you sick of the awkward looking selfies that you take? Do not torture your friends and families with your weird angled horrors. Use the Extendable Handheld Selfie Stick instead. It is a trend that's especially popular in Asia, including Indonesia, but its fast gaining ground in Nigeria too.
It is like the invisible photo taking companion that you never had.
The Extendable Handheld Selfie Stick or monopod is a collapsible rod that looks and function very much like the extendable pointers that public speakers use for presentations. At the tip of the rod is an attachment for mounting a camera with a tripod mount or the included adapter for mounting a smartphone. To bring your selfies to the next level of photography, just attach your smartphone or camera to the selfie stick, set the auto-timer on the camera, extend the stick and put on your best pose.

Alternatively, you can also use a remote camera trigger device with the selfie stick to give you better control over your photos. iPhone users can try using the GabbaGoods Selfie Camera Remote Shutter while Android users can use the Impulse Wireless Controller or the Muku Shuttr Remote Control which support both iOS and Android devices.



The selfie stick will only work with compact digital cameras and the smartphone adapter will only hold phones up to 2.6 inches wide. This fits all iPhones but not phones with 5 inch display like the Samsung Galaxy S4 which is 2.75 inches wide for example. For owners of large screen devices like the Samsung Galaxy S4/S5 or Samsung Galaxy Note 2/3, you will need an additional tripod mount adapter that support larger devices like the Square Jellyfish Tripod Mount or a similar accessory.
When not in use, the selfie stick collapses to just under 9 inches long.
