    I noticed on my bottle of Coke hey are giving 1 million of the things away... That's a lot in anyone's language.

    ...seems like a sensible way for them to record their visit.

    Yeah I can see myself using one as it would be great for shots of an adder but my camera Oly OMD would be on the end with my phone controlling the shot.

    But a monopod would do for that.

    better than this anyway

    Well, I have been considering one to hold my Lumia 640, with a superclamp, on the bedside table so I can use the Amazon Kindle app to read my books without holding it (the Lumia!!).:D

    While we're on the subject, what's a tripod, if it isn't an overgrown selfie stick?

    :D

    I personally don't think there is much wrong with an actual "Selfie stick" its more about who and where the person is using it. I was in McDonalds the other day (Don't judge m, i was only getting a diet coke lol) and a chav got one out and started trying to take a photo while doing the peace sign, while in the que. For me this is a big NO!!!!. What's the point?

    If you are using it to take a photo of you and a group of friends at the beach/day out then a HUGE Yes! I can totally understand this; It allows for all of you to get into shot, It allows you to get a more fun angle, it doesn't give a stranger a chance to run off with your phone and.. It does make people laugh which is also great for a photo.

    Personally the answer is Hell no!!!!! I HATE seing my fisog on a picture so taking one myself is guaranteed to get me wanting to press the Delete button! I, like many photties, prefer being behind the camera.

    However, if it floats your boat.......

    That's a very good point. If I ever go missing the only photo of me the police will have to work from is in black and white, wearing a suit, with a straw hat, comedy oversized glasses and smoking a fake pipe... I'm also gurning. It was that kind of party.

    I'll be easy to identify: I'm the little bald guy with a camera permanently up to his face...
