When I arrived in Florida for my vacation I already had mail waiting for me. Michael from Xshotpix.com sent me 12 brand new XShot 2.0 Camera Extenders to give away at IZEAFest 2008 and at Blog World Expo. I haven’t decided how many of them I will bring to each event but I will be giving all twelve away to very lucky bloggers.
The XShot 2.0 is one of my favorite devices that I keep in my camera bag. I have taken it with me on many trips and it allows me to photograph or film myself anywhere. Because I travel so often I’ve been to some awesome places. Much of the time I am by myself so I am glad to have an XShot 2.0 because I can shoot photos of my self in front of all sorts of things. I used it today to shoot myself at the pool as I settled into vacation mode.
Here’s what makes this product so great. It is so simple. For one thing the connection of your camera to the XShot 2.0 is done with a Quick spin knob, you don’t need coins or screwdrivers, it simply attaches to the tripod mount on your camera. Then you can position the camera adapter 180 degrees so you can get the shot you want. I used my XShot 2.0 in London to position my camera 3 feet above my arms reach and I was able to film the Changing of the Guard without anyone stepping in my way.
The XShot 2.0 is also light (5oz) and compact, only 9 inches (but it extends up to 37 inches). It is perfect to put in your camera bag, pocket or hang off your backpack when you are doing outdoor activities. I’ve taken mine hiking, in-line skating and snowshoeing.
The XShot 2.0 is an update to the original XShot. It is more rigid, can hold heavier cameras and can extend to multiple ranges. I’ve had an XShot with me for well over a year and it has come in handy on many occasions.
I have 12 of them to give away to 12 lucky bloggers. One of them might be you.
