I first came across this on crazy climb up a mountain with my buddy Russ. He’s practically flying up the trail and decides to whip out this little extender thingie and attaches his Droid phone to it. We then proceed to shoot an impromptu video with me panting for life. When I got home, after regaining consciousness, I went to Amazon and ordered one for myself. And yep, this is the real deal. I do love it when I find a tool that costs almost nothing, yet has the ability to help you raise the quality bar sky high. That’s the result of our little experiment with the monopod. So that’s why I call it the indispensible tool for video blogging. And look who joined me…all the way from Vancouver! 🙂 By the way, here’s where I found it.
