It just arrive, so I haven’t had time to use it yet. It attached well the my trekking pole. Very simple to tighten and adjust. My Apple phone fits snugly. I hike Corbett trail next week end. Hopefully I’ll be able to resubmit. So far so good
I love the selfskie. What would be even better is if you sold light weight 'extendable' ski poles too. That way I would get a wider angle shot of myself and not just my upper body in the frame
Selfskie is quite expensive (especially shipping) for what it is at this point, but does make up for that with a sturdy design using quality materials. It's easy to attach to a pole, and is rubberised in the right spots so it will stay in place. The bluetooth remote works fine, just be careful not to hold the button too long or you might capture a burst of photos. Hopefully they will improve their distribution in the UK etc to make delivery cheaper.
I tried another brand device first, and that one fell apart. I've had a Selfskie on my ski pole for almost 3 months now. It's great to be able to get some background scenery into our selfies, and the Selfskie delivers!
Such a simple idea, and very handy! I’ve never used a “selfie stick” and have ridiculed those who do. But I’ve placed this on one of my trekking poles and use it frequently while backpacking. It’s not just handy for selfies but lets me get camera angles I can’t reach by hand, and lets me use the pole as a monopod to get stable shots in low light.
I haven’t even used the remote (I just use the phone controls like normal), but the mechanical device works well and is holding up very well.
Excellent design for skiing. Used often. Perfect for the piste.
The Selfskie is beautifully designed and works just as advertised. It arrived in only a few days to my address in Canada. I will be using it on ski poles, hiking poles, canoe paddles and random sticks in the back country. Also made a little adapter with a wine cork so I can use it to attach my phone to a mini tripod. No more arms-length pics in the back country!
