What kind of experience is it to play a selfie stick as light as a feather?
I believe you have all played the selfie stick, in the occasion of friends and family, there is always a selfie stick to take a perfect picture of the figure. When traveling alone, you also need a selfie stick to take photos of yourself with beautiful scenery without the help of others. While the world famous photography (cloud classroom freelance photographer) equipment accessories maker manfuto recently launched a series of off-road man selfie stick, model is mpoffroadm-bh. How is it different from the selfie stick? The evaluation room will show you in a moment.
Mpoffroadm-bh is the first mpoffroadm-bh selfie stick made of resin glass fiber, and weighs only 120g. This material has the characteristics of hardness, weight and light weight, especially suitable for the production of selfie sticks, such as one-handed camera accessories. The selfie stick itself is 31.6cm long, with a three-leg "spin lock" designed to extend up to 90cm.
There are two versions of the manfutu off-road selfie stick. One is equipped with a universal version of ball head, while the other is equipped with a GoPro connector to suit different users. This review is universal ball yuntai version, we can see from the details of the spherical yuntai, small ball yuntai, process is not careless, the author use the deepest natural feeling "a little spin lock big tightness," whether yuntai connected 1/4 inch thread interface or side knob, we don't need to spend too much energy can be totally tight lock, absolutely not worried about chance may have fallen.
Aluminum alloy ball head supports 90° vertical row, which perfectly supports photographers' creative composition inspiration. The universal threaded interface allows our standard DSLR cameras to be securely and securely coupled.
The color design at the center of the manfutu selfie stick is unique and matches the design style of manfutu's backpacks, hiking poles, LED lights and other photography accessories. The ball head version of the selfie stick has a green "Off road" LOGO in the center and a manfutu LOGO. Another GoPro version USES blue text patterns. The author still quite likes such design, show youth vigor already, won't let a person feel depressing and drab also.
The grip on the manfuto selfie stick is comfortable. Three stripes separate the length, allowing the user to judge the length of the grip only by the touch of the hand. At the same time, the selfie stick is made of sweat absorbing material, so we don't need to worry about hand sliding when the hand sweat is too much. This is reflected in the user care in place.
There's also a 1/4 inch threaded port at the bottom that allows users to use the selfie stick as a monopod or tripod in special circumstances (paired with the manuftu PIXI EVO mini tripod). You can actually connect the ends of two selfie sticks, but you don't need to.
While the minitripod PIXI EVO and selfie stick are also small outdoor photography accessories, manfuto is certainly considering the possibility of combining the PIXI EVO with the selfie stick. This makes it easier for the photographer to take temporary shots.
Next, let's take a look at the key design part of manfutu off-road selfie stick series, which is the main feature of this selfie stick -- unique rotating locking technology of telescopic pin. In short, the length of the selfie stick does not need to be fixed by a slot, just by rotating the pin to lock it when it reaches the right length! Any unit of length can be defined by itself!
The extension reveals the internal details and textures of the "plexiglass" leg. When you touch the foot tube, you will realize that this hard and light material is quite rare, especially for the need to hold it in one hand.
Don't think that the size of the gap in the foot is not important. There is a tight fit between the foot tubes and the foot tubes without any gap. Such an excellent manufacturing process is conducive to offsetting the long-term interaction between the foot tubes and increasing the service life of the selfie stick. The technical content is very high.
The length of the three sections can be extended up to nearly one meter (90cm), and you can accommodate as many views as you want.
Whether the selfie stick is strong enough to withstand, or through the actual use of the experience to know. The SONY A7RII micro single ™ camera was used, and the FE 24-70mm F/4 ZA OSS zoom lens with weight bar was used. The combined weight of the two lenses was nearly 1.2kg, and the maximum length was extended to test the endurance of the selfie stick. The first step, of course, is to tighten the camera and fix the head.
Fix the camera on the minimum 31.6cm length without pressure, of course. This situation is particularly suitable for shooting video with a camera held up in a crowd.
Here comes the crucial step. After the length of the camera was fixed, the selfie stick slowly rose from 0° to 45° and then to 90° on the ground. The whole process was not affected by the selfie stick except that the hand was very tired. The selfie stick was still straight! It's absolutely breathtaking. This proves not only that the selfie stick itself is made of real material, but also that even a camera of this weight can be supported, and the average mobile phone without even a reflex camera would be even more stress-free.
You get what you pay for. When I look around at the plastic or aluminum selfie sticks, which are either too heavy or bent or even broken when stretched to the maximum, I can see the advantages of this off-road series selfie sticks. On the one hand, it has the inherent "resin glass fiber" as the pin material, which can provide strong and stable support, and the unique rotating pin lock design is also ingenious, convenient and fast. On the other hand, the locking strength brought by the ball head is beyond imagination. It can be said that this selfie stick of manfutu has its advanced technology content in every place, which is not a fake product. If you're a selfie aficionado, consider buying a manfutu off-road selfie stick: it won't disappoint.
