Create beautiful selfies with the Extendable Universal Selfie Stick with Bluetooth Remote from CamKix.
Have you ever had a great photo ruined by someone who didn’t know how to use your iPhone? Or, maybe the photo was ruined by your own outstretched arm? Not to worry. CamKix has you covered with the Extendable Universal Selfie Stick with Bluetooth Remote.
The Selfie Stick is an adjustable, lightweight stick built to accommodate smartphones and other cameras for the purpose of taking selfies. Never again will you have to settle for an ‘ok’ selfie that is out of focus because the camera is being held to closely or having an arm intruding into your photo. The Selfie Stick is compact and readily available for any situation where you want to take a spontaneous selfie.
The Selfie Stick extends from 11 inches all the way to 40 inches. The head of the stick can bend through 180 degrees so that your smartphone can be placed in the best position for any occasion. At the head of the Selfie Stick is a universal mount that will hold devices up to 3.25 inches in width. This will accommodate most smartphones. We did notice that when we tightened the universal phone mount down that the stress on the plastic caused a small crack. We were using an iPhone 6 Plus, which is on the larger side of smartphones that would be used. If you are using a larger phone, be cautious when tightening to prevent cracks from happening.
This particular model of Selfie Stick comes equipped with a Bluetooth remote. It’s compatible with Apple iOS 6.0.2 or newer and Android 4.2.2 or newer. This remote allows you to control your camera shutter without having to use a timer. The remote comes with instructions and it was very easy to pair to my iPhone. Android users may need to download the free Camera 360 app from the Google Play store.
I’ve had the privilege to be able to play with the Extendable Universal Selfie Stick with Bluetooth Remote from CamKix over the past few weeks and photos that I would have never been able to get by myself, I can now capture with ease. I like this accessory so much it’s going to be a must have in my car and travel bag.
The past two vacations I’ve gone on with friends I’ve been left with hardly any pictures of myself. I would ask my friends to take photos of me, but they were unable to hold their arm steady enough for my image to be in focus. When I take photos of others, I try to hold my arm still and tap the iPhone screen to ensure the camera is in focus. I will even move around to get the best angle and lighting for my friends’ photos. But, that’s just me. I want the best photos possible to keep my memories alive. Unfortunately, my friends don’t seem to try as hard as I do. Two vacations and I only have photos I took of others because the ones with me in them are horrible. Now, I have the Selfie Stick.
To be honest when I first thought of a Selfie Stick, I thought of video bloggers, or Vloggers, the people who walk around recording themselves and posting to YouTube. I totally spaced on how they could be used with a Bluetooth remote to take photos.
