Selfie sticks are so… 2018. Use a tripod instead.
Selfie sticks were great. They gave some distance to your phone for bigger group shots or to capture more background. Sometimes though, selfie sticks aren’t long enough. Or you need to capture a really epic shot.
This is my favorite style for the versatility it offers. The flexible legs can be used like a traditional tripod. The flexible legs can also be used to grab onto posts or trees (don’t forget Leave No Trace).
This style is great for combing a traditional selfie stick with a conventional tripod. This tripod will work best for level surfaces. The telescoping pole extends to 52 inches for great group shots.
Regardless of which style you choose, make sure the tripod includes a remote.
