THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY YOU SHOULD OWN
A step up from the humble selfie stick, this offers a versatile mount for securing your camera, a detachable remote control and a tripod at its base. One design advantage is you can use the stick without the tripod or vice-versa.

This is so good, it’s worth carrying every day. It has a solid mount that fits most smartphones and the handle is both a secure grip and a built-in tripod. You can detach the Bluetooth remote control to activate the camera from afar.

Steadier video is just the start of the many reasons to love this three-axis gimbal. An ActiveTrack mode ensures a selected person or object always stays centred in the frame. It works with either Android or iOS apps and most phone sizes.
$500 / apple.com/au SAMSUNG NEW GEAR 360
The second Samsung 360degree camera is so much better than its first. It delivers 4K video, 2K live-streaming video to YouTube and Facebook, uses two f2.2, 8.4-megapixel cameras, and it’s water-resistant.
$399 / samsung.com/au GOPRO KARMA GRIP
Those serious about creating epic films with a tiny camera should appreciate GoPro’s new creation. Like a Steadicam on a stick, the Karma Grip features a handle, few controls, and a battery-powered arm that holds a GoPro Hero5 Black camera in place and counters every tilt, roll, and bump. It automatically spins around for super low-angle shots, and the camera and Grip can be charged at once, though it lacks water-resistance.
