Not your little sister’s selfie stick

This selfie stick is for the adrenaline junkie pros

This is not your little sister’s selfie stick. Have you ever done something amazing and instantly thought damn I wish I had that on camera? Millions of people have the same experience every day. While some go out and purchase action cameras such as GoPro’s, others simply rely on their smartphone’s built in camera. Perfect, now you’re set to capture your adventures and share them with your friends, except are you?

Strapping your camera to your head is neat, but that’s been done a thousand times and usually you end up filming the top of your head rather than what’s in front of you.

It seems that pole mounts (yes “selfie sticks”) as much as you love or hate them, produce some of the best footage; however, traditional pole mounts have a fundamental flaw – they fix the camera to one perspective. Sure you can buy multiple camera’s but let’s face it, you’re a student… on a student budget not to mention editing multiple shots is time consuming and difficult.

Spivo solves all of these issues by allowing you to have control of the shot. Mount your favourite camera on a Spivo Sticksizes and by pushing the trigger you’ll instantly rotate the camera 1800. Having the option to film yourself, or what’s in front of you has never been easier.

Skiing through the trees at Aspen last Spring Break when a Yeti ran in front of you? Too bad your camera was facing the wrong way and your friends will never believe you. With Spivo Stick, you’ll never miss that one in a lifetime shot again.

Once you get a Spivo Stick in your hands, capturing footage will be dramatically more fun.
