Product Description

Product Description

The Pocket XShot is a compact telescopic camera extender designed to get the photographer in the picture! It attaches to any compact digital camera or camcorder. Extends to 78cm and closes to 17cm. Ideal for travelers, families, social media, sporting events and vloggers for making videos. With the Pocket XShot no one gets left out of the picture. Whether you use it for group shots, video or traveling solo, this camera extender allows you to be in the picture and capture the full background. The Pocket XShot can support cameras/camcorders that weigh up to 1.25lbs. Not for DSLRs. Supplied in great Retail Packaging.

During a trip to France, Michael Daoud, the co-founder of XShot, found it difficult to take pictures of him and his wife while sightseeing. Michael would hold the camera and extend his arm as far as possible to take a picture of he and his wife but the result was always disappointing, especially if they were trying to capture the background in the picture.

The idea for the XShot came to Michael when he was at a park in front of the famous Louvre Museum in Paris. Michael tried to capture a photo of him and his wife with the Louvre in the background but because the camera was only at arm's length and so close to their faces, only a small part of the Louvre Museum was in the picture. Michael realized that if his arm was a little longer he could take much better pictures. As a result he came up with the idea of having a telescopic arm that could hold the camera and be extended to take a full picture of the subjects and the background.

Michael enlisted the help of his friend John Stump, an inventor and mechanical engineer, and XShot was born. With XShot, taking a self-portrait looks like someone else took the picture, especially because of the extended 37 inches of reach it provides. It's just amazing! Every time Michael and John tested XShot with their families they were amazed at the great results.

They knew that other travelers such as themselves would love having an XShot along with them whether traveling around the world, hiking, out on a boat, or simply at home with the family. No more close-up mug shots, hello XShot!

I already had an extender that cost under a tender but it was not very stable so I decided to buy something a bit stronger. The groove built into the extending sections stops it rotating of its own accord. I use it for my GoPro Hero3 and it s perfect - ok you have to buy the GoPro tripod adaptor as well.
Nice weight - feels robust, comfortable to carry and easy to pack

I bought this following some strong reviews on YouTube. At first I thought it was amazing the extension was huge for an item that would fit in the palm of my hand comfortably. After minor usage over a week or two it began to stick and not open or close smoothly. It had never been completely submerged in water, I had used it once in a light rain outside and this must have been the problem. Under full extension with the weight of the GoPro on it, there was no sturdiness to it at all. So if you want an extension that you only want to do inside with it not full extended then this is the one for you. NOTE the GoPro will not fit straight on, tripod mount adaptor will be required.

Telescopic section came apart 1st time I used it so you have to be gentle with it. My friend has one and it's fine, and it's cheap compared to others, just be gentle with it.

One of my co-worker bought this mount few days ago and I'm pretty impressed about how can he moved carelessly without getting the phone dropped from the mount. So then I decided to buy this one too. The function of this item works just like what I saw on him , the grip is pretty strong but it doesn't leave any marks on my phone even though I removed my casing because it doesn't fit, anyway the design is pretty fine too and I dont have any issues on it up to now.

Works well. Have used it in the sea - air and wind. The head is reasonably secure and the tilt function is useful and it works well - but is very slightly wobbly - but only when you wiggle it by hand. Normal use with a GoPro results in a secure fitting. Considering the price - it's worth a go. Handy to pack away and enables the perfect selfie or interesting angles from above or below.

I do a lot of walking on my own and I never have photos of myself in some of the beautiful places I visit. This is ideal for my small compact and my heavier bridge camera. Also, my grown up children laughed at me for having a 'selfie stick' but they all wanted to have a go with it! It's well made, compact, simple and easy to use.

I just really liked the appearane of this extender because its really small and I can even hide it in my pocket, its just really easy to carry and very light weight and it really fits my camera because its also light so I can get a bigger view of my surroundings without having weight issues while taking pictures.

I purchased this for use with a GoPro both on "walkabout" holidays, Paragliding and Skiing. I haven't tried it yet but it appears to be just the ticket - surprisingly robust and despite the lightweight tag quite hefty. The single direction swivel head is plastic however. The shaft is telescopic chromed steel with a groove to stop rotation of sections. This will become slacker with time I suppose but seems pretty robust and stays-put as of now. It wouldn't support a DSLR but any reasonable size compact should be fine. Handle (plastic covered for good grip) and lanyard are good. Standard 1/4" thread in base means you can fit it on to table top tripod - good idea. All in all delighted so far.
