I know there are so many choices when it comes to finding the right Selfie Stick/Monopod. Today, I am highly recommending a product that includes an iStabilizer Mount (usually sold separately)…all for only 22.43 dollars!
iStabilizer ISTMP01 Extendable Smartphone Monopod
Take your mobile journalism to the next level or simply improve your self photography. The iStabilizer Monopod works with virtually all Smartphones and POV cameras including GoPro, Countour, Drift, and light camcorders. The INCLUDED iStabilizer Mount can be used on any tripod with a standard ¼ x20” camera mount.
If you have a phone that is wider than 2.7″ (70mm) you should also purchase the iStabilizer Mount XL. I recommend the Mount XL for Samsung Galaxy S4/5, Note 2/3 and other wide devices.
This can be used with a GoPro too! You will need a GoPro Tripod Adapter.
Besides it being fashionable, it extends to over 3 feet.
It is made of airplane grade aluminum.
It works with a standard point-and-shoot camera.
It is lightweight and collapsable, making this pretty easy to have with you when you need it.
It allows you to raise the camera above the heads of a crowd. You will only want to do this in video mode, since once it is up in their air, you can’t snap photos without the remote shutter release.
It allows you to take video – with you and/or others using the front facing camera…just like a video Selfie.
It allows you to shoot video of yourself while walking or turning around, which creates the illusion you have a photographer shooting the video. This is great if you are making a documentary.
The Monopod uses a standard tripod thread (1/4″ ) so you can use it with any standard digital camera.
All iPhone devices and cases, including Otterbox, will work just fine with the standard mount that comes included.
