Aukey Bluetooth Wireless Handheld Monopod with Telescopic Arm and Removable Remote Shutter Self Portrait

This came well packaged in a perfectly sized sturdy box, with an outer layer of waterproof plastic. Its so disappointing when products arrive damaged so I’m always pleased when suppliers take the trouble to ensure good protective packaging.

My 14 year old granddaughter was first to test this – she’s been wanting one for a while. There are full, very clear instructions provided. I’m a bit useless at tech, so Beth put this together but it was so simple I’m sure even a tech-phobe like me could do it! She had it ready to use within a couple of minutes, simply blue toothed ( blue teeth??) it to her phone, a Samsung mini,  attached phone to device and she was snapping away, both single images and videos. The controls are on the handle, so its easy to hold with one hand and simply press with thumb when ready. There’s no apparent time lag, so soon as she clicked the phone responded.

The arm part extends to 32 ins, so can be good fun to play around with and means you can get a huge variety of images, but closes down to a compact size that’s easy to pop into a bag for transport. Its very light too, despite being so robust so its not going to be awkward to carry around.   The holder is had a thick rubber coating so it’s very secure and will grip phone well without causing any damage, there’s no danger of the phone falling off and of course that’s really important. The grips on the handle are very comfortable, made of the same soft rubber material as the grips for the phone part.
For days out where you want to get the best possible shots this is perfect. I’d never seen one before but its opened my mind to all sorts of potential uses to get fun, clear images, not just selfies, but for when the subject of the photo may be in a hard to reach place. granddaughter has claimed this but now I want one too!

Stars: Five.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
