It’s the new trend in photos! Point your phone’s camera and snap a photo of yourself or of you and friends! Capture the moments of life without making someone get OUT of the photo JUST to take the picture!
The Selfy is a case for your phone or tablet that will help with the mission. It has a remote shutter actually integrated INTO the case. And it works with the iPhone 5/5s, Galaxy S5, iPad Air or iPad Mini.
Here are the simple steps to getting it to work:
- Put the case on your device.
- Pull the remote out of the case.
- Press and hold the button for about 6 seconds until it flashes.
- Turn on Bluetooth on your device and pair it.
Now you’re ready to take pictures with the remote!
Anytime you want a selfie, pull out the remote, activate it and snap away! Now, it does go into sleep mode, so each time you pull it out, you’ll need to hold the shutter button for about 3 seconds to get it reconnected.
It’s good for two types of pictures. You could turn the camera on yourself for a true selfie (like Kreepy Kitty did) and not have to worry about getting your hand in the right position to BOTH get a good photo AND click the shutter button on the screen. Just position and click.
Or, you could position the device away from you like Abbey The Chihuahua did – prop it up on something or use a mount like the Quickpod Selfie so you can get it further away from you – get a better angle, or get your friends in there too!
It’s $40-$80 depending on the device you want. So it’s a bit more than an impulse buy, but if you are the kind of person who takes a TON of photos, you can certainly get some use out of it to make it worth it!
Let me know if you get it, and tweet me pictures you take with it!
