If you like taking pictures of yourself or pictures of friends and family that include yourself there's no substitute for the Polaroid Camera Extender. It is an easy-to-use extending handheld monopod. You attach your camera to the end of it (it screws into the tripod socket on the bottom of your camera), press the self-timer button, extend it, and say cheese. There's no simpler way for you to get in pictures. With the included upgraded mirror attachment it allows you to see your cameras LCD screen from in front of the camera allowing you to take precise photos.
There are many times when there's no safe or convenient place to put a camera on top of a tripod. And digital cameras are just too expensive to trust handing them over to some stranger to take a picture of you and your friends. That's when you'll really be glad you brought your camera extender with you. Whether you want to put your face on Facebook or anywhere else in cyberspace or just want pictures for your photo album, you will love it. It's great for parties and after work get-togethers and for everyone wants to be in the picture. No more having to choose who gets left out of the picture.
The old fashioned way of holding the camera at arm's length just doesn't do the trick. Your arm's too short to get a complimentary picture, when the camera is too close the perspective is distorted and the flash is too harsh, faces tend to look like they belong in a horror movie. The extender will give you a self-portrait that won't scare people off, Guaranteed. (Well, not really. But it really does take a better picture than having the camera too close to your face). It extends all the way out to more than 37 inches. Besides self-portraits, it's terrific for shooting over people's heads when you're in a crowd or when you want to get a bird's eye view of a scene
