I know the idea of a selfie stick soundsincredibly vain, narcissistic and likeyou're a tourist in your own city.
Butfinding a good selfie stick can be theperfect addition to your 360 camera kitand allow you to create some of the bestphotos you will ever take by getting thatextra elevation.
I was once a selfiestick skeptic now I insist you must havea selfie stick with you if you reallywant to take your 360 photo and videoseriously because getting extraelevation means your camera gets abetter view of the world.
So when i first warmed the idea of using a selfie stick Ifound a generic one at my local camerashop and look it did the job it wasn'tthat great but it gave me a feel forwhat a selfie stick could do andeventually I decided to upgrade to abetter selfie stick and now I think I'vefound the perfect selfie stick forshooting 360 and I'm going to share itwith you guys so the selfie stick is themanfrotto two-in-one selfie polemanfrotto is a very well-known tripodbrand I own lots of their tripods andthey're known for good quality, theirstuff doesn't break it's really solid itdoesn't even come loose.
This selfie stickis so solid you can't feel any movementat all it's very very well built and thebest feature of this selfie stick is itextends so damn far like twice thedistance as a normal selfie stick lookat that holy crap that is like the heightof me so if I put on the ground it comesup to here that's huge like normallythey're about two feet look at this isginormous so when you're shooting 360 itjust helps having those extra few feetbecause it means you can get even higherand get even more of bird's eye view ofyour landscape also when you pack it upit's smaller than the average selfiestick this is about 10 centimeterssmaller than what you would normally getwhich is really handy because my otherselfie stick it fits in my backpack butit's such a tight squeeze that it'salways pushing the fabric of thebackpack whereas this one I know isgoingto fit so snugly and easily inside mybackpack so it's highly transportable sothis is a really good option I love thehand grip as well it's really solid itjust feels really good to touch andit's just a very user friendly selfiestick another huge selling feature isthe tripod thread an issue I had in thepast with my old selfie stick is thatthe head of the selfie stick was too bigbecause it's so round it actually sticksout beneath your 360 camera so it'sgoing to be seen in your photos also ithas this little screw which is alsopresent I've had to edit that out somany damn times, it's gotten so frustratingwhich is why this one is so perfectbecause all it is is a standard male 1quarter inch tripod thread and it's nowider than maybe one and a halfcentimeters so it's going to easily hideunderneath your 360 camera because withall 360 cameras the blind spot isdirectly underneath you need somethingthat's going to fit in that blind spotand almost any 360 camera is goingto go snugly onto this and the stickwill be perfectly hidden I can tell thisselfie sticks going to last me a reallylong time because it's just built sonicely and it's just really good to useit's so user-friendly and just feelsgood it's so solid not going to loosenit not going to break it I've alreadybroken one or two selfie sticks so I'mreally confident that this is going tolast me at least one to two years if notmore here are the accessories that theselfie stick comes with however I urgeyou to throw them out as soon as you buythis selfie stick because they'reuseless this is for a GoPro if you wantto use a GoPro that's fine but this oneis an adjustable head so firstly this isbad because it has the little screwsticking out which could potentially endup in your shot but also when you'reshooting 360 on a selfie stick like Isaid in my previous selfie stick videoyou need to have your camera straight inline with the selfie stick you can'thave it on an angle that's the numberone mistake I see with selfie sticks isthat people put their selfie sticks infront of them and they angle the cameraup instead of in line so when thecameras angled up it sees the selfiestick and you don't want to have yourselfie stick in your shot soget rid of this and get rid of that buthonestly this is just made perfectlyfor 360, this is the selfiestick of my dreams I never thought I'dsay those words because like I said Ihate the idea of walking around with aselfie stick and I still do but theselfie stick is just so good that I'mwilling to forgive the cold stares thatare imparted upon me when I walk aroundwith this thing in public.
People just don'tunderstand 360 whenever you do it inpublic they're like 'what the hell are you doing areyou part of the men in black are yougoing to wipe my memory?' Argh.
