Selfies are the standard norm in today’s society. Kids love them, adults are obsessed with them, and celebrities thrive on them.
Selfies can be fun and socially engaging – they can also create a lot of pressure ensuring you’ve taken the “perfect” one. We edit them, we filter them, we delete them, yet we continue our search for the best tools to take them.
I remember the first “selfie” I took with my smartphone. I was so self-conscious and probably took ten of them before I shared the one I liked.
Taking selfies is so much easier now and with the plethora of editing tools available, we can adorn ourselves with an array of filters to ensure we feel good about the photos we share.
The Selfie Stick: Then, along comes the selfie stick! The selfie stick was listed in Time magazine’s 25 best inventions of 2014. Canadian inventor Wayne Fromm patented his “Quik Pod” in 2005.
Phone-holding rods have been available in the United States since at least 2011, with an iStabilizer-branded monopod going on sale in 2012. Selfie sticks are getting a bad rap as of late and I don’t understand exactly why. I think they are a great way to enhance the already ever so popular selfie
Reasons I love the selfie stick:
1. Selfie sticks allow you to take group photos fitting many people in it – finally, we can fit everyone in a group picture. I think that’s a plus-plus for sure! Its benefits are clear: There are more variation of angles and far more opportunities to fit people into a shot.
2. You never have to ask a stranger again to take photos for you! I was always embarrassed about having to ask, so the selfie stick solves that problem!
3. Improving the quality of your photos – No more shakiness or off-centered pics! You can even prop the stick up against something to ensure stability.
4. No more awkwardly positioning your phone to snap photos – that’s the most annoying part of taking a selfie – you have to make sure you hand is exactly where it needs to be while you are posing for the selfie. With a selfie stick, it takes all that nonsense out of the picture…literally!
And the benefits can be endless. I was walking around NYC recently and saw loads of folks with selfie sticks. At almost every street corner, someone is selling them. So, with that said, I broke down and got one too!
That’s why I chose this Extendable Selfie Stick and for a few good reasons. Firstly, the price point for what you get is great. Below, are the features and some pics of what it looks like.

- LOCKING EXTENDABLE TELESCOPIC MONOPOD POLE: Locking groove prevents the rod from slipping with your phone’s weight, keeping your phone safe, secure and steady. You can use it at any length you desire (up to 97 cm/38 in).

Weighs less than a point and shoot camera.
