3Csmart Octopus style tripod review

Landscapes, selfies, time lapse, group shots & more should require a steady hand or something stable to help you get that shot without looking blurry.

I received this 3Csmart Octopus Style Tripod to review which came at a great time. I had another tripod and the leg broke off.

What I like about it:

The flexible legs allow you to wrap the legs around things or even move them in different ways so you can put it on uneven surfaces.

It’s compact & lightweight, perfect for travelling. You can easily put it in your suitcase or backpack without weighing it down or taking up a lot of space.

One thing I was annoyed with about my other tripod it that it didn’t come with a clip for my phone. That is not the issue with this one. It comes with a universal phone & camera clip. Which can be place horizontal or vertical.

It comes with a bluetooth remote which has a range of 30 feet! No more leaving people out of group shots or take your own selfie.

The best part it is under $15.

It’s $12.98 on Amazon right now

I took it to the beach and it was pretty windy. I wrapped it around a tree and it stayed put.

Hold up, let me take a selfie

Over the past few months I’m sure you have seen or heard about the selfie stick.
You no longer need to leave out someone out and if you are alone you don’t have to worry about asking a stranger ( who might have bad photography skills) to take a photo of you. If you are hiking or have an amazing back drop you can now see that when using a selfie stick vs taking a regular selfie.

DealStock was kind enough to send me a selfie stick with built-in bluetooth in blue to try out & review.

The top ‘U’ part twists off and on so it is easy to carry and pack when you take it with you. The piece with the orange top adjusts so you it will fit your phones height when in the selfie stick. It is very secure too , not once did I feel like my phone would fall out. Another great thing about this selfie stick is it is very lightweight, no need to worry about it weighing down your bag. I do have a bigger purse but sure it would fit in a bag smaller as well.
You connect it via bluetooth and the button to take the photo is on the handle which is easy to press while holding the stick.

Just a friendly reminder , please be aware of your surroundings & be considerate of others when using your selfie stick. I saw a lot of tourists when walking around NYC just whipping them around lol
Also don’t bring it on rides on amusement parks. I recently read an article about Disney and how they are banning them because of that.

Other than that have fun taking photos of a bunch of people or yourself.

Here are some photos I took with the selfie stick.

Brooklyn Bridge Selfie Stick

Brooklyn bridge park, if I took a normal selfie you wouldn’t see the whole bridge in the background. So its great to set a lot of the background when you are by yourself or want to control what you get in the photo.
