SELFIE STICK REVIEW AND WHY ITS A GAME CHANGER







Hi guys! This Christmas the selfie stick was a very popular 'gag' gift, we all have that one person that loves to take a selfie. Well, that selfie pole is one of the best things I've brought since starting Youtube. 





I searched Amazon and found the AFUNTA Extended pole with 1/4 in screw. The screw allows you to use it with your camera or go pro and it comes with the attachment you need to use with your phone. The selfie stick comes with a Bluetooth remote shutter, which you just pair to your phone and BOOM! Say bye bye to having to reach for that button! 




The pole is  monopod extended pole, it feels nicely made, had grip on the handle so it'll be harder to drop, has the arm strap and for only $11.50 I think it's worth every penny!



Since I started Vlogging I find that holding the camera or iPhone to get everything in the frame can be really hard. I like that I can hold the pole and capture everything! I know lots of ladies have been telling me how popular these are at Disney World, and I can see why! Now mom can be in the picture too! We are usually the ones behind the camera or you have to ask a stranger! You can fit it in your purse and when you want everyone in the photo or video just use your selfie stick.


Here's the camera shown in the video. It's the Canon Sx150is and I've had it for a few years. It's a great introductory camera, especially when your learning to shoot in manual. I hope to upgrade this year to a new Sony camera.
 
I promise you, it's not as silly as it sounds! It's a great idea and I'm so happy that I decided to buy it. It shipped quickly from Amazon and was exactly as described. So get ready guys because your going to see more Vlogging and photos of this mama!
