XShot Photo & Video Accessory

We've all seen people with their arms awkwardly extended trying to take a photo or shoot a video and include themselves in the shot. The XShot is a telescopic rod that attaches to any compact digitalcamera or hand-held video camera and allows photographers and videographers to be a part of the memories they capture.

Simply connect any digital compact camera to the XShot adapter using the built-in thumb screw and adjust to the desired angle. Engage the self-timer, extend the XShot, aim and shoot. The XShot provides over 3 feet of reach, which is enough extension to include as many as 5 people in a shot. This patented pending product is made of high quality stainless steel, closes to nine inches, weighs 3.9 ounces and neatly fits into a pocket.

One such effect is achieved with the XShot when the camera is placed in video mode and the user spins in place 360 degrees. When played back, the video appears three-dimensional and the subject seems to be standing still while the background revolves.

The XShot sells for $24.95 and is available online at: www.xshotpix.com.
