Selfie stick (signalex) £1 in poundland

25
Found 13th Aug 2015
Not much to say, a selfie stick for a £1. I guess nationwide as it's a signalex thing and most poundlands have these. Tried it yesterday and seems about as good as others I have seen for £7 or £8.

No bluetooth button for shutter release but ideal for those that don't know how to balance their phone against a rock/tree or anything else in the world 3 feet away from you and use the timer.

Got one of these a few weeks back and...for a quid you can't argue. There is no Bluetooth or anything, you simply set your timer on the photo settings and select how long you will need to 'frame' the shot. It grips your phone with a spring activated clamp and it also extends about three feet or so.

for a pound, it is good.
I got a bluetooth one from Currys for 5 pounds (after 50%) off. Used it for 2 days in Paris and threw it away. In the 2nd day, it just constantly stopped responding. Always needed to reconnect. Also, the phone kept rotating...

Ended buying another one in a Paris department store for 20 pounds. Much much much better quility.

The only good use of this device is to take it away from an idiot using it and shove it up his a$$.

Have you had it removed yet then??

I use a 10 metre roach pole now to get over the top of all the Jap tourists wandering around London with these. Latest modern curse, banned in many places now for "ELF N SAFETY!"

I guess the human race has always had self-obsessed people. Except now they buy implements to take pictures of their bums or do "kissy-I'm-sexy-except-I-look-like-a-tryhard-fool-duck face" 100 times in a row and plaster them all over social media. Unfortunately, they are more difficult to avoid if you have an internet connection.....

That's the next innovation for groups of narcissists..the 'crowdie stick'..a very long carbon fibre pole fitted with a phone attachment with which they can take massive crowd shots of themselves and dozens of their self absorbed friends. I will just hope and pray for a lightning strike.

Next innovation: selfie stick worn permanently on head, so selfies can be taken constantly.

Your only jealous because you have no friends.

Vain stick!

Surely you need some sort of bluetooth function otherwise its junk.

It's a quid. The camera's timer function can be used.

Cannot stand selfies or selfie sticks ugh but heat added for a deal

I can't wait for the improved version with added counterweight, so Japanese tourists can take selfies with 10“ tablets.

Seriously, those things are annoying as hell. You can't see a thing and get poked in the eye every step by dumb blondes taking duckface photos nobody will ever look at anyway. No wonder many places started banning it.


Generation of "I don't care what that piece or history is as long as my face is in front of it".

I'll pass on this.
Hopefully a phase which will die away.

may have been struck because he was carrying a selfie stick



'may'

Also, may have been struck because he was out in the open on the Brecon Beacons in a thunderstorm.

I hate them, as I said in the blurb, they are for people that don't know how to use a timer on their camera but it's a quid and the cheapest I have seen one and this site used to be for deals, not slating other people's deals, posts, opinions, life choices.

They do have their uses.:)

I think anyone that has been to Bangkok or Hong Kong recently would send every selfie stick and it's owner back to China. They don't even look where they're going lol
