GoPro action cameras have changed the way we record ourselves or take pictures. While a lot of the time, these are in first person view, GoPro’s also make for a great device to take selfies with its wide angle view.
An easy and convenient way to achieve this is by using a monopod or selfie stick with it. This will not just allow you to get a better angle, but extendable poles will also give you some distance between you and the camera.
Why use a selfie stick monopod for your GoPro camera?
With these, recording yourself doing some action adventure or a picture of you can be done easily, with any angle you want. If you are taking a picture with friends along with a view, there is no need to miss people out, and a group picture is not a difficulty at all. In fact, using a selfie stick can also help in reducing shakiness and deliver stable and smooth media as well.
What to look for when choosing a selfie stick?
See the extension length of the pole and how the mechanism to reduce and increase the length works. It should be a strong and sturdy attachment instead of a flimsy one that can drop your camera or phone.
Durability and quality is a big factor if you plan on keeping the monopod with you for a long time. Having one that is waterproof is good so it doesn’t catch rust. Also look for monopods with warranty.
Versatility of use is a big point too. Instead of choosing a pole that only works with one certain device, get one that is compatible with multiple brands of cameras and smartphones for convenience.
