Go Beyond the Arm Length Selfie with HandlePod

Want to avoid an outstretched arm photobombing your picture? That’s so 2014 as Twitter called the year of the selfie. There are better ways to do it and HandlePod can help. HandlePod raises the camera above the hand and provides a few more inches of distance. That makes it easy to avoid the outstretched arm that screams  ”OMG, not another selfie!” Of course a selfie stick will do the same thing with greater camera separation, but that’s all it will do. HandlePod will do a lot more.

Attach to Supports for Group Shots

Get everyone in the photo with HandlePod and a smartphone with a tripod adaptor or any camera with a self timer.

Attach the HandlePod to a lamp post or any available support, use a self timer and let everyone get in the picture. The selfie becomes a groupie with no missing photographer friend invisible behind the camera. And no need to ask some passing stranger to take the group shot.

Use It Like a Mini Tripod

You can also place HandlePod upright on a table, bar or shelf—any flat surface just like a minipod. This gives you the chance to compose the shot and get in the picture before the timer fires. It makes a full length figure shot possible and gives a chance to consider posing, lighting and composition. Suddenly the selfie becomes a self portrait with a lot more creative possibility—all without a tripod. And you can do this with any camera from a point-and-shoot to a DSLR or a smartphone with a tripod adapter.

HandlePod gives you a wider field of view with the possibility of group shots and full length self portraiture. Get beyond the length of your arm and take the selfie to another level.
