Selfie sticks have been the talk of the town lately, and recently Kevin from KnowTechie witnessed his first one in action.
This is was eye opening for me
Hell no, not this annoying dick trend again.
I hear ya, that was my first thought. However, it's less douchey when used for the right application.
This sucks since we use "sticks" for filming all the time. These are popular with GoPro. Now you slap "selfie stick" on them and suddenly they double in price.....
whoa, I didn't know that was the case. Before the selfie stick craze, were these obtainable through stores and websites? Or did you have to make your own?
The idea of a camera on a stick has been around for ages. Crane like devices have been used in the film industry for decades. Now they're just smaller and more portable to cash in on the selfie craze.
The "technical term" is "Monopod" or "telescopic stick." They have been around forever now. For better ones, yes even the controls are remote just like the "selfie stick" does it.
Should be called the Narcissus-stick, or simply "Narcisstick." tm
