This is my review for the TruWise Bluetooth Selfie Stick .
I have been looking for a new one for a while, as the jaws on the old one were becoming, er less grippy, and I find it disconcerting to say the least to put a £700 piece of tech on the end of a £10 stick, and waft it over the edge of a skyscraper.
That said I was becoming more dissatisfied with the last one as the controls were clunky and not really compatable to the phones I was using.
So When I was able to try the newTruWise Bluetooth Selfie Stick I jumped at the chance.
I was looking for
- Better Camera Controls
- Security for my equipment
- More versatility
- Long Life
So when I saw that the TruWise Bluetooth Selfie Stick comes in aluminium, and with a full bluetooth control system I was tempted, but couple that with a life time warranty and the ability to integrate this stick with my tripod, and I was sold.
By utilising a purpose built app Available from either the play store or the iPhone App Store the camera is as fully functional as if you were holding it. You can switch easily from front to back camera ( great for periscope) zoom controls all work, switch from still to video all via the remote.
The Remote is neat and very precise and is chargeable via mini usb. The Best part though is it is detachable. I found this as a real bonus on a recent periscope as I was able to set the phone on a tripod and move away completely and yet remain in control … Fantastic
Attaching the phone is straightforward, the jaws are the usual spring loaded affair, but the grip is upgraded and better attached, (My first lost it’s soft grip after a day) The adjustment controls are precise, the camera /phone does not sag over to one side, and you are in control of the tech which is, after all, the most important thing.
I use video a lot and I have always struggled to get my phone in a position where I can do face to camera work with no shake. With the TruWise Bluetooth Selfie Stick , this is solved as the selfie stick attaches directly and easily to my tripod, HUGE BONUS.
I have been using the stick everyday for the last 2 weeks, and it is a seamless integration into my tools bag. The jaws are still strong and the soft rubber grips still intact. I forsee a longlife for this tool. All that said the TruWise Bluetooth Selfie Stick, comes with a life time warranty, so total piece of mind.
A selfie stick is, at the end of the day, a selfie stick.
- What makes this one stand out?
- It is well made
- It has the fab little remote
- far better functionality of all the controls ( The phone is fully usable)
- It integrates with my other equipment
- It is compact,lightweight, and reasonably priced
I have to say that I was given a substantial discount in exchange for my unbiased review, that said though after 2 weeks of use, I would really miss it, it has become a much used, and trusted piece of kit in my Video/photo equipment bag, and I will be using it for a long time to come.
