My Selfie Stick Hack

I bought a selfie stick from the Pound Shop. It cost me a pound.

It has an extendable handle and, at the top, a phone grip.

Notice that the bottom of the small camera has a tripod screw – well that is standard, and the extending handle fits!

Still, it was worth a try!

The children can now use the flexy tripod thing to attach their smartphones to their bicycles and film away – or they can just take selfies. I like that I can extend the small family camera as the quality is better than a phone, and I plan to wade out into the sea on the holidays, filming from above in HD.

What do you think? Any other suggestions?
