How Old Is The Selfie Stick?

The original selfies date back to antiquity, with the Renaissance being a rife period of self-portraiture. Of course, this was long before the invention of the camera, but even in the early days of photography evidence of self-portraits exist. Take this 1926 picture as example. Here you'll see Mr. and Mrs. Hogg, and there's no missing the rigged selfie stick obscuring half the shot.

There's also Japanese man Hiroshi Ueda who, in 1983 while working with Minolta, invented a selfie stick for the Disk-7 camera, though then it was referred to as an extender stick. He claims to have come up with the idea after traveling Europe with his wife, in which they found it very difficult to get passerby's to take their photo.

As you can tell, the idea of the selfie stick has been around arguably as long as photography has. Though the means of producing them and getting consumers to latch onto the idea is another story. Even as recently as 2005, Canadian Wayne Fromm invented what he called the Quick Pod, but it would still be nine more years until the mainstream press would take notice.

In 2013, The Oxford Dictionaries named SELFIE the word of the year. In 2014, TIME named the selfie stick no.18 of the top 25 best inventions of the year. Ninety years after the first known appearance of the selfie, the selfie stick finally caught on. You think that would be the end of it, until you meet another enterprising Japanese man has invented the selfie arm, saying he's embarrassed to use a selfie stick.

A wave of the future? You decide.

What You Can Expect Your Selfie Stick To Do


Go to top.

Selfie sticks are really quite genius, and the less-than-exciting explanation of their function goes like this: a selfie stick is a modified monopod comprised of a pole and a clamp to hold a camera, or more popularly, a smartphone. Typically, they telescope out, and are thickest at the grip, for better balance once the device is attached. Many offer Bluetooth remote controls, built-in shutter buttons, and wrist straps too; making them simple to transport with you and to set up that perfect shot. From here, the variations are a matter of taste and manufacturer quality.

Some are built with smartphones in mind exclusively, whereas others are designed to be compatible with a range of devices including GoPros and DSLR cameras. Depending on your preferences and array of gear, you'll want to lean on the side of customization. Selfie sticks are very straight forward, though there are options that weigh a little more but have features like an aluminum body, pivoting head, and tripod attachments. Naturally, these cost more than basic counterparts, but even then you'll rarely shell out more than thirty dollars for them.

Durability wise, many selfie sticks are produced out of aluminum that's not only tough for daily use but lightweight too. After all, these apparatuses are compact for portability - many can fit in your pocket when closed. And if you're unsure whether you would benefit better from a Bluetooth connection or wired, consider this: Bluetooth may sound more high-tech and the obvious option, but this requires charging of the unit; corded counterparts are wired and always ready to go.

But it's what they do that makes selfie sticks so very, very popular. It allows a person to hold the camera at a distance far enough away to get oneself in the frame. Finally the masses can create their own high quality self portrait, or selfie, a word that's been around since 2002, when it first appeared on an Australian internet science forum as an affectionate shortening of the more formal term. Each person needs only a smartphone and a selfie stick held high to give a flattering angle, and boom, a beautiful shot is created. And let's face it, people love self-portraits.

Finding The Right Camera Mount


Go to top.

A selfie stick is nothing without its mount. This is what's positioned at the top of the stick, which holds the smartphone or other device in place. The most important responsibility of the consumer is to ensure that their device is compatible with the mount, as they vary from one manufacturer to another - it is after all one of the main aspects that sets them apart.

Many selfie sticks feature a ball head with a 1/4"-20 screw to accommodate cameras with the same tripod thread size. It is wise though to consider the weight of the device you're wanting to attach; if it's too heavy, typically over two pounds, it will place too much pressure on the stick which could render it impossible for the user to hold up, and possibly compromise the selfie stick itself. Don't get us wrong - selfie sticks are durable, but they have a weight limit too.

There are however even simpler units targeted towards smartphone users solely. With these types of sticks, you'll find a spring-loaded mount that pulls up for device placement, with a rubberized or silicone coating to prevent device damage and ensure a snug fit. They are designed to hold devices at the horizontal position, however, some, but not all, have mounts that are able to pivot to the vertical position, as well as 180 degrees too.

#9.Accmor 50-Inch Extendable Handheld Monopod with Bluetooth Remote Shutter Button on Stick for iOS, Android Devices, Camera & POV Camera


I've been wanting to buy one of these since i have seen some, my friends, using this on occasion. But the sticks my friends have been using are very flimsy and would bend if I put my Note 4 in it. I bought this stick because it was better equipped for the price and from the picture, the phone clamp even looked sturdier. I usually don't buy anything with as few reviews as this has, so I was sorta going out on a whim when I bought this.

#3.Fugetek FT-568 Professional Selfie Stick with Bluetooth Remote for Apple, Android, Gopro & Digital Cameras (49-Inch, Black)


I bought this selfie stick to using with my Canon in hopes of getting unique angles of the ocean side on my trip to Santa Barbara. Unfortunately, it's not really sturdy enough to support a heavy DSLR, but it's perfect for my iPhone and extends pretty far. I took a few shots of the height - I'm 5'2" tall, and when I hold it in the air (extended as far as it will go) it actually reaches my ceiling. Pretty cool toy to have if you love taking travel photos or just want some cool angles.

#1.Volsey VS1 Built-in Bluetooth Remote Shutter Selfie Stick for iPhone and Android Smartphones - Black


The small metal pieces from the charging cord to the connection on the handle broke. I emailed the company about it and got no response. Luckily I had an old cell phone charging cord that just happened to fit it. However, I would have preferred to have the original cord replaced since it broke in the first week that i had it.
