XShot 2.0 First Impressions

 I came across XShot, this cool camera extender last week. This is XShot’s tag line, “Photograph and video yourself anywhere!” This great product is perfect for people who are always taking pictures of their friends on trips and adventures but never find themselves in the pictures.

Let’s go over the features of this bad boy really quick and then go over my experience with it so far.


  • Durable metal shaft
  • Lightweight
  • Extends to 37”
  • Closes to 9”
  • Fits many compact cameras
  • Supports heavier cameras
  • Variable length

Here are some of the things that the XShot can do:

  • Fun and easy to use
  • Eliminate awkward photos taken at arms length
  • Capture full background and scenery
  • Take a picture anywhere without asking a stranger
  • Take pictures from unique angles
  • With the XShot it looks like someone else took the picture
  • Easy film making for online videos and journals
  • Make videos with 3D effect

A few weeks ago in Bryce Canyon, my friend was filming with his GoPro video camera and he said, “Wouldn’t it be great to have a to have a stick thing to mount the go pro on to help me video myself.”  I was at the festival of colors this spring and saw a lot of people with their cameras taped to PVC pipes. This thing has a variable head so you can get a different angle and you can stretch it out about 3 feet. Personally, I enjoy taking photos of others but I must admit this has been great to take group shots so I can be in the photo, too.  Check out Cate & I below. When I get a video camera to take on my trip, this will be incredible to take videos on and help out a lot, and I can’t wait to use it some more. This is great for outdoor adventurers especially those who like to take videos of friends and family and be included in them or if you want to take a photo or video of yourself.  This is also a great option for people who can’t bring an extra person to video or take pictures.

It’s been really easy to capture pictures of my friends and myself.  All you have to do is put your camera on self timer mode or video mode, mount your camera on the Xshot, start the timer or video recording, then extend your camera and point your camera at you.  Simple.  Easy.

My Canon Powershot g10 is hefty, and the Xshot supported it fairly well. At first, I took a few photos that were out of focus but after trying a couple of times I got it down, and it’s easy. A lot of new advanced cameras have a smile timer, it senses when you are in the picture and takes it.  You need to make sure to learn how to position the XShot to not get it in the shot, if you zoom in its pretty easy.

Here is a shot I took of Cate and I at the radio station using the XShot.
