Another cool feature of the Blitzwolf Selfie Stick is that it can be used as a tripod. Indeed, you can pull the base apart into three sections which act as legs. This is pretty convenient when you want to place your phone in a static spot and snap pics. Pull out the remote and you’ll be even better positioned to take group shots.

Its handle splits apart to double as a tripod base, and the Bluetooth remote control operates reliably for both photo and video functions.

The BlitzWolf selfie stick is made from Aluminum alloy and rubber (which are lightweight materials). The Aluminum allows for easy carriage of the accessory, while the inclusion of rubber is for easy grip and proper stance. The BlitzWolf BW-BS3 selfie stick weighs only 148 grams.

The stick is primarily composed of aluminum with traces of plastic here and there. It feels really light yet it’s also sturdy in the right places. It doesn’t feel like it’s cheaply made

An Overview On Selfie Sticks

Selfie sticks are more of a household term than they ever have been due to their recent popularity combined with the fact that most people have smartphones these days.

A selfie stick is a device that allows you to attach your smartphone to an extending arm so you can get a better vantage point when taking selfies. There is usually a way to trigger the camera on your phone by pushing a button on the selfie stick’s handle or potentially with a wireless Bluetooth remote.

The resulting pictures will usually look much better than a normal selfie taken with your hand because you are the main object in the foreground but you’re actually framed into the picture well. It’s an unfortunate truth that our arms are just not quite long enough to take a proper selfie with our smartphones and this device is a genius way to let us use that fancy camera technology to take dazzling pictures where we aren’t half cut off because our arms are too short.

Selfie sticks aren’t only meant for smartphone use, although they cater mainly to this device as so many of us carry one nowadays. There are beefy selfie sticks that have the same screw-style mounts that cameras typically are screwed into on traditional tripods. The Fugetek Professional Selfie Stick Monopod goes one further and acts as a true monopod for your camera. If you like to travel light while still having the functionality of a camera, this is an ideal selfie stick for you. The stability of the monopod will have you shooting super stable shots with your camera when it’s planted in the ground, but it also allows you to get the most out of your favorite wide-angle lens when you use the selfie stick in its normal fashion. Just be careful when you’re waiving that camera around as they can be more cumbersome than a smartphone and will tire out your grip faster.

People drop selfie sticks a lot. This does a number of things that are unfavorable, like potentially damaging your phone or camera, or falling onto someone else and injuring them. A wrist-strap is a well-known and very simple tool that should be used on a selfie stick. A convenient feature in the Mpow Selfie Stick, the wrist strap gives you the confidence to hold your stick out at the proper length without the stress of worrying that it might fall to its demise.

A selfie stick that acts as a tripod can be a big bonus to those of you who might use that feature. Some models double as a free-standing tripod mount for your smartphone that allows you to take steady shots to eliminate any potential blurriness. The feet of the tripod-style selfie sticks are often adjustable to allow you to stand the selfie stick up on uneven ground which is great for when you’re outdoors somewhere far from flat pavement or concrete.

After being able to stand up your smartphone on a tripod, being able to control your camera with a remote control adds a huge convenience in functionality as well. If you use a tripod selfie stick like the Yoozon Selfie Stick and Tripod that can stand wherever you want it, you have the ability to frame yourself in the perfect picture while using your Bluetooth remote controller to snap the pictures. To achieve this, you stand where you think the angle will be best to capture a picture of yourself or your group of friends and you then place the tripod there with the camera focused and aimed exactly at the best spot for your picture. Then you can go stand where you need to be and snap pictures with the push of a button. This allows you to have perfectly framed and epic pictures without having to ask a random stranger to take them; better yet if you’re lost in nature and need to get that perfect shot, you have the power to do so with the Bluetooth remote.

A rubberized grip, or silicone handle, is a great feature to look for when separating one selfie stick from another. The feature of having a grip with a high level of friction is one that could save you from potentially dropping your phone or camera while trying to take a picture. Considering the places you hang your phone out when using a selfie stick, like over the edge of a cliff or boat, dropping the phone can cost you a lot of money and potentially cause a safety threat if there is anyone below.

DYWM Fun Fact

Selfie sticks blew up in popularity during the 2014 holiday season, when they were one of the most gifted items of the year, but the oldest recorded selfie stick came from the 1920s, where a picture shows a man holding a long wooden stick to remotely operate the shutter on his camera so that he and his wife could stand far enough away to be in focus. From this humble beginning, selfie sticks managed to be so popular that a store specifically for selling the gadget opened in Times Square during the summer of 2015, helping it move from a funny fad to an honestly sought-after invention.

The Selfie Stick Buying Guide

  • Make sure your Bluetooth enabled selfie stick is compatible with the operating system on your phone. The information on the selfie stick’s description should tell you this information and the settings on your phone should allow you to see which operating system you are running.
  • Be aware of the space your selfie stick is taking up. If you are looking at the camera and swinging the selfie stick around to get a good angle, you could accidentally hit someone. This could either dislodge your smartphone or negatively impact the person who it collided with.
  • If you want the best selfies with your selfie stick, look up a video or two that describe how to best frame a picture. Where you are in the picture and where the background objects are in the picture can make an average picture become a much better picture if these items are framed properly.
