Thank you Anil for including the XShot camera extender in your awesome selection and for telling us that you were using yours all the time, especially to open up photographic angles. By the way your XShot picture of Saint Sofia in Istanbul is spectacular. Check it out below and on foXnoMad.

” The shot from the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul in Turkey  can only be gotten if you throw yourself off the top balcony (ouch) or use an  XShot Extender  (~$25). This monopod lets you take good photos of yourself with background and company included – perfect for the solo traveler who only has photos of their face close-up from a million places around he world. Also, like I mentioned above, you can get photos above a crowdand over physical barriers as well.” Source foXnoMad.
