MIAMI, Fla., Dec. 5, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Quik Pod(R) Extendable Poles from Fromm Works, Inc. allow the photographer to be included in the shot at all times. Great for snowboarding, paragliding, diving, skateboarding and hiking. GoPro(R) shots are taken when no one else can assist with a photo opportunity, the Quik Pod (www.quikpod.com) is the original handheld pole for selfies and action shots.
Simply attach the GoPro camera to the included quick release GoPro mount, turn the camera on, extend the pole and aim. Each Quik Pod has a built in selfie mirror to ensure the person holding it is centered in their action videos and photos.
“When used for diving the photographer can explore coral and marine life from a safe distance, even get closer to sharks!” says inventor Wayne Fromm. “I created the Quik Pod Pole before anyone even knew what to call a selfie, prior to the existence of Facebook, the iPhone and Instagram.”
“I took it on a trip last month to Florence, Italy and people were amazed and asked where I got it. One guy said ‘that’s incredible’ and his wife thought he was referring to the Pitti Palace but he corrected her by saying, no, that camera pole,” says Fromm.
Media teams and GoPro photographers worldwide use the Quik Pod Pole, the original handheld extendable pole. Each Quik Pod for GoPro includes a built-in selfie mirror, padded carry bag, carabiner, waterproof lanyard, quick release GoPro mount, universal 1/4-inch x 20 camera mount and a tripod screw hole in the base to convert with accessory tripod legs for tabletop use as well.
