    A really high-tech selfie stick for great angles on land & sea!

    Last November on the Giz Wiz I talked about the Pictar Mark II -SmartPhone Camera Grip for iPhone and (some) Android phones. It's a way to help turn your smartphone into a DSLR. It's here: https://amzn.to/2NDBTrA

    Now that company, Pictar has devised a totally different kind of Selfie Stick. Recently the CEO of Miggo / Pictar, Rafy David, came by the Gizneyland studio to give us a look at how it works. And here's background info from the company: Pictar Smart Stickis the world's most advanced selfie stick with a 6-button control panel built into the handle, allowing a variety of functions even when the stick is fully extended. You can easily control the tilt of the phone relative to the stick to determine the perfect shooting angle, use the zoom function, adjust image brightness, switch between the front and rear camera and many other functions. The easy-to-use Pictar app offers 20 shooting modes for taking better selfies in any situation. It features a rechargeable battery and comes in 3 fashion colors. The Smart Stick works with the latest iPhones, Galaxy phones 6 and up, and Pixel phones. MSRP is $69.99, and it will available later in September 2019.
