Selfie Stick – Lets You Get More in the Picture

I never imagined I would be a person who would use a selfie stick, I always thought people using them looked silly, and I hate to stand out as an obvious tourist when traveling. But I was wrong, the Smart iReach Selfie Stick is very useful and fun. It gives you the ability to take a selfie that shows what you’re standing in front of, instead of just a close-up of your head. It’s also great for reaching far out, up high, or down low to get unique camera angles.

We brought our SmarTech Products Smart iReach Selfie Stick to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival near Monroe, Washington and were able to get some beautiful photos, as you can see. The before pictures are taken just at an arm’s length while the after shots are taken using the Smart iReach. You can clearly see much more of the background in the after pictures. We were very pleased with the results!

Selfie Stick – Adds 28-1/2 inches to your Reach & Fits in Your Pocket

The Smart iReach is incredibly easy to use; it connects wirelessly via Bluetooth signal to your device, which allows you to use the mechanical shutter button on the handle to take photos. The Bluetooth wireless connection is very useful, as you don’t have to set a timer to take a picture, giving you as much time as you need to set up your perfect shot.The Smart iReach can be used on both Android and iOS platforms. It’s created out of lightweight carbon fiber that weighs under 6 ounces so it’s easy to take along in a backpack, purse, or pocket. It extends to 28 ½ inches and retracts to just 8-1/2 inches.  It has an auto shut-off feature so you won’t have to worry about your battery being drained unnecessarily and itt works with your camera’s photo and video modes.

The Smart iReach Selfie Stick has an expandable mounting bracket so that you can fit almost any size device. Check the SmarTech Products website to see if your device is compatible – I bet it is!   The bracket feels very secure, and I haven’t been worried about losing my phone yet. The Smart iReach feels well-made and recharges very quickly via the included mini USB charger.

We have been very impressed overall with our Smart iReach Selfie Stick and have been bringing it on all of our recent travels. It is an excellent find, and highly recommended.
