Rotate the camera on the AquaPod Mini to easily take self-portrait images. Easy to use and hold steady, the AquaPod Mini extends from 15.5 inches (39cm) to 38 inches (97cm). It is particularly travel friendly because its collapsed size easily fits into a briefcase or carry-on luggage. To shoot still images with a Sea Life camera and the AquaPod Mini, simply set the camera to “SPY” mode, allowing it to automatically shoot at set time intervals. For videos, set the camera to video mode and start shooting. For best results, make smooth and gentle movements so the lens stays focused on your subject. The AquaPod is non-corrosive and resistant to salt water, unique among other handheld "selfie sticks" and monopods. The AquaPod Mini includes a wrist strap and a mount for GoPro cameras.
