Only a year ago, they were all the rage, everyone had one, your Mum, your sister, Gran and Grandad all taking photos of themselves doing it.
What am I talking about? Yes, you guessed it, a selfie stick.
Let me set this for the record first off, technically, it’s a monopod, technically. I know, selfie stick is what everyone calls them, but personally I think that just makes them sound cheap (sadly, a lot appear to be).
Why am I talking to you about Selfie sticks? It just so happens, I recently added one to my gear. I know, I shock myself sometimes, I was one of those people who scoffed at the time. My wife even got annoyed because she wanted one at the time.
