The not-so-humble selfie has been elevated to an art form, becoming a standard part of social media. Unfortunately, most selfies give a too-close view up the subject’s nose because the phone is so close to your face. Now, you can add a little distance to your selfie.
Selfies, or self-portraits to those who despise abbreviated words, usually show a great big head… and that’s about it. It’s not the poor phone’s fault. Your arms just aren’t long enough. Fortunately, instead of trying to figure out how to stretch your bones, you can just use the Telescoping Selfie Arm.
This lightweight device holds any D-SLR camera, digital camera, action camera, video camera, GoPro, (whew! This is a long list) iPhone, Galaxy, or any other Android smartphone, allowing you to extend the phone (and the camera) up to 39-inches away. To take the shot, you can either use the phone’s self-timer feature or add something like the Shutterball to your smartphonegraphy arsenal.
The attachment is 100% waterproof, has a quick-release camera mount, rubberized grip, wrist strap, carry bag, and even a built-in mirror to make sure everything is lined up properly… because what’s the point in taking a selfie if you chop off half your face?
The Telescoping Selfie Arm is available for $49.99.
