The Pocket XShot from XShot is a telescopic camera extender that allows you to take stable photographs of that most difficult of subjects to capture properly: Yourself.
The Pocket model of the company's eponymous XShot camera extender measures only 6.5" when collapsed – small enough to ride along in your back pocket – and extends telescopically to a maximum length of 30.5". Rather than smashing (most of) a face or two into the frame, you can now take roomy, flattering photos of yourself and a travel companion that actually capture the background.
The Pocket XShot bears loads up to 1.25 lb, so it works with any point & shoot digital camera with a timer function and with very compact shoot & share camcorders such as those from Flip, Contour, and GoPro.
The XShot features a 1/4"-20 screw on top to attach to almost any camera. Just twist the thumbscrew to lock a camera in the desired position. At the bottom is a 1/4"-20 thread, so you can mount your camera to a tripod without removing the Pocket XShot. That thread also accepts the included wrist lanyard.
Note! Not appropriate for DSLR cameras – 1.25 maximum load capacity
