I have never seen a HandHeld Tripod before for self portraits.
It kinda made me laugh at first, like what will they think of next. Then I thought who would want this, turns out quite a few people. When you stop and think about it I guess it would make things easier in certain situation, plus it folds up small and fits in your purse. Here are the ones I thought of – If you were out skiing or hiking by yourself and wanted to get some pictures of you. If you were on a trip even as a couple and didn’t want to ask someone to take your picture at every stop. If you wanted to do a self portrait for your avatar and needed a little more reach I guess it would work for that too!
There is no sale on this one today, but I just had to post it cause I have never seen anything like it before:)
