There are countless ways I would like to start this review, and just about each one is more of a commentary on society than anything else. That being said, for a product that is essentially a parody of itself (from many people’s points of view) I was extremely impressed with this product.
First of all, the functionality is simply fantastic. Like a professional camera monopod, there are ways in which you can maneuver the part that holds your phone, extend it various lengths, and even attach it to other stands. The thing I liked the most is that the more I used this product, the more I found it to have countless uses aside from ‘selfies.’ It’s more of a photography tool than something just used for selfies.
The product actually works through bluetooth where you push a button on a remote (which resembles something like a garage door opener) and it takes a picture from your phone. This also has functionality aside from selfies, as it can be used on its own as a remote shutter. It pairs easily, and can be used extremely easily which added to my positive opinion.
All in all, I think the biggest takeaway is that the name of this product is misleading. While it’s marketed as a selfie stick, it does much, much more. Although if you are just looking to take selfies, it does that exceedingly well also.
You can find this selfie stick for sale here.
