The XShot Sport is the most advanced action sports camera pole available. It collapses down to under 12 inches (11.75" / 30cm) yet still expands out to 40 inches (100cm) while weighing less than half of most other poles at under 7oz (200g). It is compatible with GoPro cameras, action cameras (e.g., JVC, Sony, Ion, and more), compact point & shoot cameras, and also includes an adapter to hold most any mobile phone.
The XShot Sport is made from hard-anodized aluminum and has been salt water tested by independent labs and received ATSM B117-11 certification. With tons of extras included and rugged up build quality, it's up for any adventure while still being small enough to slip into a pocket or pack.
XShot started the camera extender revolution in 2007 with the first camera pole in the United States. We've designed and built precision built camera extenders made especially for adventure travel because they're exactly what we want to carry for our own use – great construction, easy portability and the ability to work with any camera or phone.
*Camera Adapter adjusts to fit compact or large phones such as iPhone® 6 Plus or Samsung Galaxy.

We use it with my Canon S95, but any point and shoot will work fine with this. I've even used it with my Olympus OMD EM5, but it can be a little bit difficult holding it steady.
You can also use this as a mini monopod in low light. Rest it on a table or railing or car and you have gained some extra stability for those evening shots.
You can also use it to shoot from new perspectives. Hold it up high to shoot over a crowd (use a remote or the self timer). Hold the camera low to get a bug's eye view. Or hold it out over a railing to get an unusual angle.
I took this with us to Florida. I knew I would be using it a lot and opening/closing it often so I figured this would be a good test. For the majority of the trip if I wasn't using my GoPro I would just collapse the arm and put it in my pocket with the stand sticking out. It was small enough not to be an annoyance. I must have opened and closed this thing at least twenty times a day over the ten days we were there. It definitely got its butt kicked and it took the beating for the most part.
Great Sport Pole
