Quik Pod for dSLR Lets You Take Self-Portraits

If you have ever tried to take a picture of yourself or you and other people without using a timer by just holding the camera out from you in your hand you know that can be hard. I don’t like asking strangers for help because the strange could be a nut job and run off you your camera. The Quik Pod surfaced a long time ago and the thing has now got longer and can hold a dSLR.

The Quik Pod, if you are not familiar, is a monopod that you can connect your dSLR to, and then you can hold the thing out away from you to take a better pic without needing help. The big downside that I see is that there is no way on most cameras to see the LCD so you can line up the shot.

The arm is very strong (as is evidenced by this video of one being run over by a truck), so it should be able to support your dSLR without any issues. Retracted, the Quik Pod is 18-inches long and extended it is up to 53-inches. The top mount it universal and should fit any camera. Quik Pod retails for $49.95 (USD) and you can order one here.
