CYGNETT GOSTICK

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.

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.

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.
