Have you ever been on a trip and wished you could take a photo or video of both yourself and the scenery? Of course it’s possible with a tripod or handy object like a tree stump. This does involve some mucking around testing where to stand or getting a photo of your back as you run back to position as the camera timer goes off.
This is where the StickPic comes in handy. A while ago we contacted one of the inventors, Rod, and squeezed a free sample out of him. It sat around for a while and we finally took it on our last trip to Tasmania.
Rather than explaining it all here, we produced another of our rough and ready videos to describe what it is and how it works.
StickPic’s Australian distributor is Jeff over at AMTC Gear. We tried to nab a discount for Our Hiking Blog readers but Jeff tells me the margins are pretty lean so no go. The sales page is here if you are interested in nabbing one, they are $A16. Sorry, I got the cost wrong in the video….
Have you ever used a StickPic?
What do you prefer, pictures with people in them or just scenery?
Any other ideas to include yourself in a picture when you are hiking?
