I mentioned in my previous posts regarding my passion in photography. I love taking pictures and my subjects would always be my children if not nature. I rarely take pictures of myself for so many reasons. I love multiple pictures of myself that way I can choose the nicest one to share and that seems to be a problem for my “photographer” who happens to be my husband. LOL! He has problems taking multiple pictures of me because he can’t take my criticism. I think he doesn’t know how to take pictures because the subject would aways be too far or the other way around. It’s either he has no patience in holding cameras (phone or DSLR) or he finds it so boring when clicking multiple pictures. He is just not into it. Thus, I am so glad that monopod or selfie stick was invented.
About a month ago I was approved to review a Selfie Stick – Professional 2-in-1 Bluetooth product. I was thrilled because I can take pictures of myself now without having to ask any favor from anyone including my husband. I bought a monopod before but it doesn’t have a lot of features unlike this new one I received for a product review. What’s great about this selfie stick is that I don’t have to download a timer app because of the built in Bluetooth shutter button right on the handle of the stick. It makes taking a selfie/groupie a lot easier. It also comes with 3 mounts that can be used for digital cameras and phones in different sizes. All I had to do is to turn the Bluetooth on from my phone and from the stick; once the device is recognized I’m set in taking pictures.
For some reason I had trouble connecting it with my iPhone 6 plus and I couldn’t figure it out up to this moment. However, I had no trouble using my husband’s Samsung galaxy phone, I can connect the bluetooth device easily. The stick handle has a good grip and it can be extended up to 39 inches away from me. I like this better than the other stick I got. Shipping was fast too.
I would suggest though that they should pack it in a personalized box (not just a plain brown box) to make it look more appealing and a “must have” manual booklet for the sake of those who are not technology savvy individuals like me. I honestly had hard time figuring out on how to install the Bluetooth device from my phone to the stick like I mentioned above. I literally had to search it on YouTube for instructions. But other than that I think this is the coolest selfie stick ever!
