Unboxing The XShot

XShotWe just received an XShot, the cool little extension device that you attach to your still or video cam that allows you long and/or panoramic shots without the aid of an extra person. Its stainless steel shaft is indeed lightweight and extends 37-inches. The screw is a standard one used on tripods and it has the tilt capability of 180º. The company claims that it will fit in your pocket when closed (9-inches,) but those would have to be some pretty big jeans to accommodate it. It does, however, have a nice lanyard for carrying and a very comfortable rubber grip. Full review and demo after the jump.

XShot Takes Pix Without a Third Person

XShot

Frustrated on a trip to Paris when he wanted to take pictures with his family, Michael Daoud couldn’t get a decent background. Lo and behold, the XShot was born. The telescopic rod attaches to most compact digital single-shot and video cams with a built-in thumb screw. Adjust the angle, set the timer, extend the device, and shoot away. Daoud claims that it has a reach of over 3 feet and can handle up to a 5 person shot. The XShot weighs only 3.9 oz. and will fit in your pocket when not in use. We think, aside from the ingenuity, the best part is the affordable $24.95 price tag.
