The Popular Camera Extender just got even smaller with the NEW Pocket XShot and features an additional universal tripod socket at its base.
SANTA BARBARA, CA – November 17, 2010 – XShot LLC is pleased to announce the Pocket XShot, the latest in a line of camera extenders that lets the photographer be in all the pictures with their friends. The new camera extender has all the same valued benefits as the popular XShot 2.0 plus added features:
- More compact for easy traveling. Collapses to just 6.5 inches, yet still extends to 30.5 inches and only weighs 4.6 oz, making it very easy to carry in a pocket, purse or camera bag. It is so compact that it fits in the palm of a hand and is lighter than an iPhone 4.
- Features a new tripod socket at the bottom of the shaft adding the ability to be used on a tripod for additional height.
- Precision-engineered device made of durable metal with a new smooth black rubber grip
The Pocket XShot allows people to photograph and video themselves without any tripod set-up or asking a stranger for help. This is perfect for users that love taking photos or videos and posting them on Facebook, YouTube, or other social media sites. Many people use the XShot while on the go and the feedback from customers was that a more compact version would be a real plus while traveling and would allow them to have it handy at all times.
This camera extender attaches to any compact digital camera or camcorder. An outstretched arm is never long enough to take a good photo of the photographer and any other subjects. The 2.5 feet of extra reach helps to capture great memories very well including the full background. The Pocket XShot also doubles as a perfect stabilizing device for mini camcorders such as the Flip and the iPhone 4 using XShot’s new iPhone 4 case.
"The Pocket XShot is the ultimate accessory for anyone looking to take great photos especially for social media. My favorite thing about the Pocket XShot is how compact it is when closed, yet it still provides over 2.5 feet of reach. When you use it, it looks like someone else took the picture." said Michael Daoud, co-founder of XShot LLC. Every single Pocket XShot is hand-assembled and tested like the original XShot 2.0. “At XShot we listen to our customers’ valuable input. Each product is carefully designed, controlled and guaranteed and the Pocket XShot is no exception,” added John Stump co-founder and Engineer.
