How many times have you wanted a picture of yourself or a picture of yourself with a friend or even a group of friends? What do you do? Risk theft by handing your expensive digital camera to a stranger to take the shot or setting it down nearby?

Many of us have discovered how to hold a camera at arms length and snap the shot, but these pictures tend to be poorly composed and not very satisfactory.

Enter the Xshot


This nifty little device allows you to attach your compact digital camera and then hold it out and away from yourself, up to 37 inches (94 cm) away! And it retracts down to a small enough size to fit in your pocket, making this device very easy to bring along on any outing.

The Xshot is the perfect accessory for a night on the town or travelling on vacation!

Here’s a picture I took of myself just holding out the camera:

As you can see, there’s much more in the picture. This means better travel photos when you want the ultimate self portrait.

By moving the camera away you also get less harshness caused by the flash going off so close to the subject. So when you crop the picture you get a better result. And it’s the perfect tool for the flattering angle shots used on social networking sites like Facebook and Myspace.
