Thanks to MPow for our latest giveaway items for the Ignite Your Senses giveaway. This includes the Selfie Stick below and a 3-in-1 mobile phone lens above. I got a chance to review the selfie stick. You'll find that below. You'll also find the giveaway form where you have through 2/24 to enter to win.
Selfie sticks are a popular item these days. There are plenty of them available in the $15-$25 price range. There are just two factors that differentiate the different selfie sticks: how the phone is gripped and how to snap the picture. With the MPOW iSnap, the claw to hold the camera in place involves a spring loaded arm, with that orange grip at the end. Its a one-size fits all selfie stick.
The other differentiator in the selfie stick world is how to take the picture. Some sticks offer no support and you must have a self timer in your camera app. A second way is via a wired connection. Just attach when in the phone claw and you can snap a picture with the button by the hand end of the stick. What the iSnap offers is Bluetooth connectivity. Just pair up the phone with your mobile and snap away from the handle on the selfie stick. The kicker though is you have to keep the selfie stick charged. Otherwise you lose the Bluetooth connection.
A third factor in choosing a selfie stick is the extension length. Are you looking for something in smaller scale where you can easily take a selfie, or something with a little length involved. The iSnap extends to a full 3 1/3 feet. Just hold it up as the parade goes by and snap away.
The second half of the giveaway prize is the 3-in-1 lens. Offering a fisheye, wide angle, and micro lens. With mobile phone cameras being so powerful these days, adding a camera lens seems like the natural progression. Who needs those DSLR cameras any more?
