Ipow Extendable Wireless Cable Control Self-portrait (No Bluetooth Matching and Charging Free) monopod Selfie Handheld Stick Pole with Mount Holder ... (New)
[In case you are wondering, I also had the Hunger Games Catching Fire bluray and fish food for my bf in my cart to get the free shipping, and I will not be reviewing either of those lol.]
Thankfully, I did receive the product I thought I ordered lol. Set up is super simple and easy. Just screw on the black part that holds your phone, plug in the cord to your earphone jack, turn on your camera app, and you can start shooting pictures with the button on the handle right away! I have an iPhone 5s and it easily fits although adding the orange adapter may help it fit more snuggly. I let my bf's friend's gf use it with her phone and it's one of those humungo ones, and it fit that as well although I think it was near the limit since she also has a case that's a bit bulky. For my purposes, this works quite well though, and I don't worry about breaking it due to the size of my phone which I'm not planning on upgrading for awhile.
I think photos taken with my phone on the selfie stick are probably more worth seeing than more photos of the stick itself so I'll just dump a few here haha.
Last picture (bottom right) is a bit of a joke because I really didn't need the stick for that, but with it I was able to back up enough to get an even distribution of light on my body without getting so much excess background and foreground. (Also pardon the mess behind me. I took these right before I left for the night wtf.)
I also recently and unexpectedly used it at work. The regular camera died while we were out in the field all day, and I just happened to have the stick with me and quickly hooked up my phone. It was a bit unnecessary, but I just wanted to try it lol. It helped boost my phone up in the air for some shots and also allowed me to shoot with just one hand when needed.
I can't really share the photos I took for work but here's a selfie I quickly took that day while walking lol -
Overall, I'm not unhappy I purchased it, and I'm sure I'll use it a bit, but I've had it for about a month now and don't reach for it often. I'm not yet one of those people who carries it with them everywhere so that's probably why lol. That being said, I look forward to using it on upcoming trips for sure! The product works well as intended, and it's great for a second option for self shots and especially group shots.
