How many times have you been traveling and you’ve needed to bug a stranger to take that fabulous shot of you and your family beside the Eiffel Tower or on the crest of Little Rount Top? Probably hundreds, right?
Well, no longer. You can take the picture yourself with the XShot Camera Extender, an interesting device much like a tripod or camera stand except that you hold it in your hand and snap the photo yourself while being in the photo at the same time. Sound impossible? Not withe XShot.
Use it with your digital camera or a video recorder anywhere in the world. On your next trip to Gettysburg Pennsylvania, try using the XShot 2.0 Camera Extender to take a photo or video yourself near your favorite monuments, standing beside one of the artillery pieces on the battlefield, or while climbing the stairs of one of the towers. It only weighs 5 ounces and extends out to 37 inches. Perfect for taking pictures while you’re in them!
If you don’t believe this is a great product, just take a look at this video of CNN correspondent Richard Guest showcasing the XShot 2.0 Camera Extender and you can try it out yourself on your next trip to Gettysburg.
