We try it: Selfie stick

We’re getting “up close and personal” with the latest craze: a selfie stick!

So many of us love to capture that perfect “group selfie,” but without positioning the phone further away from you, it can be hard to capture the perfect shot. So, Vivitar, the 75 year old camera company, has now brought “selfies” to the professional level. The new smartphone selfie monopod offers a bluetooth enabled remote so it looks as if a professional framed the photo.

The cool thing is, it lets you take photos and videos from a new angle. You can attach any smart phone or point and shoot camera, The built-in shutter release button lets you snap photos and videos without using a remote. Lightweight and portable, it stands to 36″, giving you a massive reach to get everyone in the shot.
