I am not really a selfie type person, yes certain days I feel like I look a little less awful and take one, but most the time I hide from cameras. I do however take pictures with the kids on holidays and birthdays. This stick is really helpful for taking pictures with friends and family.
This stick makes it so I don't have to try to make my arm 10 feet longer, or bend it at a backwards 90 degree angle. Normally it would take a contortionist to fit everyone and thier face completely in the shot. Now though I just stick the phone in the holder on the end, and plug the end in the headphones jack. Then get everyone together and smiling, press the button and you're done. It is so much easier seriously.
This stick is really light and easy to use. You literally plug it in, aim, click, and done. I was afraid I would have to do stuff on my phone to make the button work, but fortunately I didn't. It is something everyone can use. The length is also nice. I can get the shot from far away, but it's not so long it's wobbly and hard to hold.
I love it, and can easily carry it in my purse or diaper bag for all school functions and family outings. It also saves you from having to ask that stranger at the park to take a picture of you and your family. We all know how awkward and uncomfortable that can be for anyone.
So I have officially been converted halfway. I will be using it, and loving the relief it brings to my arm. Remember though there is still such thing as being obnoxious with your stick.
