Last year, over 1.8 billion photos were uploaded and shared. Each day. And a lot of them sucked. This is why you need a Pocket Click Stick. Not so you can be annoying in public places, but so you can take better photos, and share them with the world. With the holidays just around the corner, now is the best time to get one. I’m going to give you a few reasons why, but I’m sure you will have a few of your own.
There’s no question that selfie sticks have gotten a bad rap in the news lately. They should not be used in crowded public places, as that’s just rude. It’s a whole different story at home. When your friends and family come to visit, you’re going to want some photos to share online, and that’s what that camera on your phone is for, right? How are you going to get that perfect shot? If it’s you, or you and one friend, you can probably fit both in when you hold your camera at arm’s length. But what if it’s a small group? Do you ask a relative to take the photo, and risk an image that is not in focus, or your head or other body part is cut off awkwardly? Are you going to trust grandma with your phone? She’s still using a flip phone. No, it’s time to take matters into your own hands, and use the Pocket Click Stick to get the exact photo you want.
A good selfie stick will appeal to your creative side as well. Do you have pets? A dog or cat? Maybe both? I bet you wouldn’t crawl on the ground to get a good shot of your pet. But with your Pocket Click Stick, there is no need to do that, or take those lame shots looking down on them. Your Pocket Click Stick will let you get your camera at eye level to any of your pets, whether they are a tiny chihuahua, great dane, or even a bird up in a cage. Unless you have an elephant or giraffe as a pet (in which case, lucky you!), this selfie stick will help you get better photos.
While I said you shouldn’t take your Pocket Click Stick to crowded public places, it is great for travel. It telescopes out to 26 inches, and then folds back up to just 6.5 inches, so it’s easy carry in a pocket, purse, or backpack. The clamp adjusts to fit most phones, even some of the big ones out now. And a plug on a coiled wire goes to a button on the handle, so forget those clunky selfie sticks that make you use your timer. This one lets you decide when to take a photo, with the push of a button. There may be a slight delay, but it is far better than using your timer. So it will allow you to take better photos. Ones that don’t suck. Available for $14.95 in black, blue, or pink from Rickysnyc.com
I’d like to thank Rickysnyc.com for providing their Pocket Click Stick for this review. We had quite a bit of fun taking goofy family photos, all of which are too embarrassing to share.
