    I bought a selfie stick for my GoPro for our trip to Florida. We like to video tape and get pictures of wildlife, such as manatees and other creatures. While on a walk on a wooden bridge, we saw an alligator under neath. I extended the stick to get a picture using my remote. When the alligator saw the camera, it came out after it and snapped at it. I figured it would do this again, so I put my GoPro on video and dropped it down again. The alligator came out after it and snapped at the camera again. I was less than 6 inches from this alligator when the alligator snapped. I got two more segments. I was able to get so close that you see past the teeth and deep into this alligator's mouth. This all happened from a safe distance as I stood above the alligator. This was an excellent purchase. I am adding two pictures I took using the Quick Pod.

    I was torn between the "GoPole Reach" and this product, since they sell both at Best Buy, and both have similar prices. What finally made up my mind about buying this product against the other where 3 things: 1.- Even though both products are made of a combination of plastic, rubber and aluminum, the Quickpod Extreme looks and feels more sturdy and durable. 2.- Accesories included: while the "Go Pole" only comes with a Go Pro mount, wrist band, and a remote clip, the Quickpod Extreme comes with the Go Pro mount and several other accesories including a digital camera mount, smartphone mount, wrist band, top and bottom shock absorbers, wrist band, and a carry case for all! I like this product's versatility. 3.- And final but not less important, the length on the "Go Pole" only goes from 14" to 40" while this Quickpod Extreme goes from 18" to 53", thus, giving extra inches to capture wide angle pictures. I took my Quickpod Extreme for a test run kayaking at the lake and I was extremely satisfied.

    I bought this Monopod for my wife, while we were away together on a trip. We have a one year old boy, who does not sit still long with conventional tri-pod / camera set ups. We were looking for a way to capture family photos quickly. This Monopod is well made, sturdy when fully extended and compact when retracted. Many unique features separate this Monopod from other brands. It's a little high in price considering you can buy a quality tri-pod for less money......but since it is a purpose built piece of equipment.....it's to be expected. We really like the fact that you can use regular point and shoot cameras, smart phones or Go-pros with the same device. Only the Go-pro requires a quick change in adapters. Cameras and Smart phones can be used without effort. The only reason that I did not give this unit a full 5 star rating, is because of my concern for the quick release tabs along the body. They could break with too much force applied.......but we have been pretty careful with the unit. Fully Recommend this product!

    Broke after one use

    I purchase this product for my trip to Alaska, but after one use, one of the clips just snap and broke, I almost lost my GoPro, but I was lucky. I went to return and exchange the product in Best Buy but I was told to contact the manufacturer, well good luck with that to me :( I will definitely don't recommend this product to anyone and I am kind of disappointed from the Best Buy customer service, I understand their 15 days return policy but I was not able to do anything from the cruise ship, I was there for two weeks.

    Probably the first and only pole I will ever need

    Posted

    Like this pole's versatility. The pole is sturdy and feels solid in my hands. The pole has a pretty long extension which is really not necessary but in those rare cases it is nice to have that extra reach. Comes with several accessories that can attach your dslr, digi cam, cell phone, wrist strap, rubber elbow, all included in a pretty nice case to house everything. So far the most of my use for this pole is for my gopro. The most extreme testing I have put this pole up to has been at an amusement park. I used it on all the rides I went on including water rides and it took all the abuse and the pictures all came out fairly good with no excessive movement, vibration, or swaying. Basically straightforward, easy to use, and would recommend it to anybody looking for a nicer, complete pole.

    Great Extension, Great for Scuba

    Posted
    Sctcrash

    I had tried a few different mounts for my Go Pro but find this gives me the most flexibility, especially for Scuba. I just got back from the Bahamas and the great extension helped me get some footage of a turtle napping under a wreck, then some nurse sharks swarming around a dock without getting wet, not to mention some great shots of the swimming pigs as they came up to the boat. Add to it that its just right to help me hold my regular camera still without exhausting my arm when I film and take pictures of my kids at their school and other events. It has been well worth the money and goes on every trip my gopro goes on. One warning, my strap broke when I was snowboarding with my kids and I fell. I think it was just melted together ends, so I tied it back together and melted the knot. No problems since.

    Easy to use & Effective in its Purpose

    I chose this GoPro pole for because it had to whole package. The case has been super helpful and convenient. The pose itself is strong and very easy to extend to give your filming a whole new experience. I used it several times to get closer to wildlife and even an alegator and poisonous snake. I was able to get some great shots. My GoPro fits easily and securly. What else can you ask for - easy to use, quality material, a nice carrying case, extendable, good grip, and the price was cheaper than other options. It doesn't have a stand or tri-pod, but I wasn't interested in that. So just know if you want the longer range of extendability or if a tri-pod type of deal is more important. I've been really happy with this pole and case.

    After doing some research and comparing this one with a few other brands I make the decision on buying this one for the value. Just 40 dollars and is very sturdy and strong. No shaking, no sounds even if you extend it to is max of 53'. This bundle includes: -A sturdy carrying case -Smartphone phone attachment -Gopro attachment(compatible with all Gopro cameras) -Camcorder attachment -Wrist Strap -Hiking clip -Pocket or belt clip,etc. Everything on it is sturdy. And is waterproof or resists damage due to the water. You will not regret it if you get it. I got it on sale for 40 dollars.

    Great Pole For Use With GoPro Cameras

    Used this pole with my GoPro Camera while on vacation and it was the best accessory I've used so far. Easy to quickly make changes from extending the pole out and locking into place to being able to flip it around for a self view with the ease of just one screw to loosen and tighten. I attached the belt clip, the wrist strap, and the metal clip all to the pole so I had the option of carrying it however I wanted. I've had friends use other types of poles that were cheaper in price and they had to still use other GoPro mounting hardware just to attach it to the pole but this one is by far well worth the money and doesn't require any other hardware to mount the GoPro to it.

    Works great with my GoPro Hero 4 Silver. I'm sure it would work with any camera with the standard screw mount too. It extends very long, but is also still strong when extended. I have not taken it in saltwater yet, but it worked great in the river. Makes good group selfies easy to take, and gives a good view from wherever you want it to reach. It doesn't float, so use the provided wrist lanyard while diving just in case. The locks also feel very secure. I like the case it comes in, but it is impractical to be carrying around. Great for storage though if you're setting it aside for a while.

    I never even took it out of the box. I bought it along with several other accessory items to go along with a Sony Action Cam. I ended up deciding I didn't want this item, particularly at this price. I just didn't see value in it. Sure, I could use a way to get a different perspective with the camera for selfies of a group but didn't see spending this much for that capability. As it turns out, the camera field of view is large enough that all four of my family can be in the photo/video when the camera is held at arm's length. I'm sure this is a high quality item but not worth the price for me.

    The Best Value Monopod & Selfie Stick For The $$!

    I was recently on location filming in Hollywood when my original selfie stick/monopod wore out and failed. That very same evening, I went on Amazon, EBay and Best Buy looking for a replacement that I could purchase the next day or have delivered. After reviewing the various options online, I reduced my options to the DigiPower - Quickpod Extreme Monopod - Black and am happy I did. From the solid locks on it to being able to mount my Shoulderpod and more - this is a great value for the money. I would highly recommend this! David Esquire Caffeinated Photographer

    Unfortunately, I received this as a gift, but those who gave it to me did not realize it was for the GoPro series of cameras and smartphones--not to mention its main use is to take "selfies." If a person wants to take selfies in extreme conditions with great results, sure. This product might be great for you--I couldn't really say for sure. It has a nifty little mirror on the end that holds the camera away from you when you're taking a picture, which I suppose is helpful for taking selfies. I also noticed that there were a lot of little parts to this before I returned it.

    I connected my Go Pro to this selfie stick while on vacation a few weeks back. It feels very sturdy and the grip is great. It's also has a good weight to it. If I could point out any negative, it would be my opinion that it's somewhat bulky and, for the price, I thought for sure it would include built in blue tooth. This allows you to pair up with your phone or camera and click a button on the stick that will take the picture. I will do better research next time. I gave it three stars due to it's other attributes.

    High Quality Monopod

    I purchased this for my husband as a gift to go along with his new Go Pro. I was lucky enough to get this on sale. For the money it is definitely worth it and the monopod is high quality. It was a little difficult to figure out which attachments are for what and how to assemble those pieces as there are very little direction however it just takes a little bit of time messing around with it. We also recently brought this on vacation with us and took it in the water and even though it doesn't say it's waterproof, it held up just fine.

    We have done a lot and traveling and this extending stick has been very helpful in the National Parks for taking selfies as well as extending to take photos closer to waterfalls. We even used it through a moon roof while driving through Zion National Park. You can extend it to whatever length you need or carry it around on the short stick. The wrist strap isn't very strong and broke quickly- we are going to design a Velcro wrist strap so we can use it while jumping in water and to keep it tighter I the wrist so we don't lose it.

    I love that it is water proof. I like the extension and stability/grip of the stick. Don't like the fact that it does not have bluetooth. Don't like the fact that it does not work with my iPhone 6 plus. Bottom screw for the bottom bumper also becomes lose. Mounting clip, which is supposed to secure it to a belt or other clip, also broke and I lost my $80 GoPro Wifi Remote in a water fall. Thanks to this stick I'm out $80 for my go pro wifi remote and the cost of this apparatus. Keep on looking.

    Brought this item to used for our honeymoon trip. After using it for couple of times during the trip, the leveler clip broke off. We were not able to extend the pole anymore during the trip. Lucky, our GoPro did not fall off. We are very disappointed with this selfie stick. The price was not cheap, but the product is. Since we were gone for three week, it passed the return period. We throw the junk away on our way back from trip. What a waste of money.

    This device is a GREAT help for me. I have to take pictures of roofs, and this gets my camera high enough for those photos and is very stable. The only think I had to modify was to purchase a cheapo selfie stick for the phone holder. The one that comes with this is not designed to accept the larger phones like the Iphone 7 or LG V20 which I have. I have used it with my Cannon Powershot SX60 and as long as I hold it straight up, it also works well.

    This stick gets u farther out than most unipods. Once you attach your GoPro you are ready for action. I use it for recording in my car and ive used this stick for a number of things such as: I mentioned recording in my car, its really good when you are trying to get the best video of your little babies. (Pups). Lately I have experience to use this with my skateboard and the gopro and the stick. This was the perfect combo for what. The skys the limit.
