I love my StickPic!

Stickpic photoI took my StickPic with me on the last backpacking trip I went on to deliberately take some photos and video using it on the end of my REI trekking poles. I've had it for quite some time and have forgotten to carry it with me, or on several occassions that I have taken it I've ended up not taking my poles - crazy I know.

Well the stars (and my memory) seem to have been in alignment for my last trip because I took the StickPic, my poles, and actually used both to take some very interesting looking videos.

For those of you that are not familiar with the StickPic I suggest you check it out. You'll wish you could have come up with such a simple yet ingenious idea as this. It's beautifully designed and just works! The idea is it screws to the tripod holes on your camera and then slides onto the end of your trekking pole with a snug friction fit. You then hold the pole out in front of you and use you timer setting or video option to take pictures from a perspective that puts you directly in the shot. It's a lot of fun. Here's a clip that was taken on my last trip using the StickPic.
