I’m not going to lie, I think selfie sticks are ridiculous. But they’re fun, especially with friends. And this is a motorized, rotational Bluetooth selfie stick… it’s both extra ridiculous and extra fun. At the very least, it gets people talking.
The Elivebuy selfie stick is quite simple. It has a control box above the padded handle that takes three AAA batteries and has three buttons. Two buttons control the rotation, and one is the Bluetooth remote easily connects to your device. It also has a tripod threaded hole at the bottom of its handle.
The head of the selfie stick features a soft rubber base and two arms. They can hold a device both vertically and horizontally, and pretty tight at that. It’s not all that easy to insert your device, but once it’s in, it stays in. The arms do a great job keeping your phone in place.
One cool feature of the Elivebuy’s selfie stick is the convex mirror on the back, which you can use after rotating the stick 180 degrees to take photos with your rear camera. It’s a small touch, but it’s nice.
If you’re in the market for a selfie stick, why not pick this one? I’m sure you can find a use for the rotational head. It allows some adjustment when it’s extended, and you can get yourself off center to fit some other subject in the shot. Yes, it’s kinda useless, but I had a surprising amount of fun with this thing. Just be prepared for your friends to roast you.
