The QuikPod is one of those simple gidgets that make you go, oh yeah! The inventor keeps calling it a tripod, while of course it’s an extendable mono-pod, but we won’t quibble. The main function of it is to let you take photos or videos of yourself, by yourself. No more risking your camera with strangers in front of the Taj Mahal or perching your digicam precariously on the ledge of a mountain. The only slight problem is that all your vacation snaps come back with great close ups of you and your partner, and not a lot of detail of the Leaning Tower. But hey, it’s $24.95.
The Quik Pod is quick and easy to use! Extending the camera distance between the camera lens and subject will create properly proportioned facial images and will diffuse the flash lighting when a flash is used. The Quik Pod enables you to capture self-images and the background scenery that you wish to include. The finished photos and videos will appear to have been taken with the help of another person or by a traditional tripod. Your arm will be in a comfortable position and will not appear in the photo.
