This is the one i keep the food on to protect it, but guess what most of my video is taken on my phone now i did have an attachment, a phone attachment for this one but, like i said i just keep the voos on it because it’s More delicate lenses, so that’s out and the other one i don’t know, and i don’t even know where the attachment is so what i needed was a selfie stick camera with a stand for the and that’s what i’ve been after most reserve research. I bought this atom tech stand from amazon, there’s links in the description to their website on amazon, page and hopefully it’s as good as the reviews were it’s going to live up to expectations. A sturdy selfie stick stand for a large phone, s10 plus, hopefully it’s going to fit. Let me let’s have a look what you get in the box, all right, atom, tech, that’s. What the box looks like let’s, open it up, see what we got inside. I finally can put my phone inside holding it like this and then i’m, so much proper like what these all these cameras have. Music let’s see what we get in the box instruction manual. If you need one what’s that usb cable that’s, probably if they’re charging the the blue tool Music, they all have little bluetooth buttons that you can pair with the phone i don’t use them. I don’t like so i don’t take photos.
Maybe they take me any videos. So, anyway, usb cable, nice little one. Do you come in useful, the short ones? This one is about half meter, particularly short, but it’s free. It comes with it. Whatever we’ve got in here, you’ve got the stand on your little warranty card. Activate your warranty three year. Warranty that’s a lot one. Okay. Now we have a selfie stick stand in this sort of a box. Oh she pulls out, and here we have. The selfie stick stand first. Impressions are this looks good, see what atom takes a lot of gear. Closer look! Well, it looks good a little warning there fully pull out or push back the stick to open and close tripod. Instead of opening the three legs fully pull out or push back, stick fully pull out or push back. I don’t know what’s that mean fully pull out. That’S that top bit isn’t it whoa have a look at that in a minute see a little button. There usb button to pair don’t get this fully pull out push out so don’t pull this don’t pull the legs. Oh, you have to figure that bit out Music. Okay, Music you’re not supposed to pull the legs that’s, what i’m doing Music that’s? What the stick looks like first impressions are it’s, quite compact, it’s small it’s, the same size as my existing one for the other cameras: Music, no it’s smaller. This was supposed to hold the phone.
It looks well made robust. This is plastic, but this feels like metal at the top Music that’s, what it looks like Music, all right so main reason. I got something like this over a tripod like that is because apparently this can hold the phone without attaching anything, whereas that you’d have to put an attachment on it. I’Ve not looked at the instructions. This said to pull back or push. What do you pull? Music? Oh yes, look at that Music. That is pretty good. That’S got a lot of height to it more than that one. So there you go that’s the phone holder, which is one of the reasons i bought this. You unscrew that okay, so i’m gon na be using the phone a lot, the s10 plus i’m Music. So pull it upwards. Yes, it takes the phone it. Oh, yes, it’s holding it that’s. What i got it for now. Can i? Yes, that is cool Music whoa, that is cool. That is cool. That is what i wanted got quite a bit of distance, Music, okay, so that’s the form selfie stick part is quite robust: he’s not going to lose a little latch. Yeah it’s got a little hook, not yeah at the top as well bottom one’s, bigger, so it’s hooks onto your phone, which is good and you see it as you can see, there’s a little hook at the both ends. Yeah let’s see if you can get an angle that is pretty good, it’s sturdy i’m, shaking it okay, so it’s past that test it’s past the phone hold it test, it quite flexible in range.
Well it dips. Past 180, as well it’s, not just straight it’s, got an angle that points down. It’S got quite a lot of movement. I’Ll. Tell you i’m impressed you can tell by my voice it’s better than i thought it’d be well. They don’t, so you’ve got this much movement. Obviously, that’s not well, you could point the other way. It’S got quite a lot of movement. Now this so it’s past the phone holder test Music. Now can i work the stand let’s see if it passes the stand test. Okay, let’s, move this out away. Music let’s. Do the video okay see when it passed the stand test? How do you get this done to work there? We go while you push it down. Yeah, you push the stand down Music, so you close it. Then how do you close it? So you push the stand down, you just push the stand up. Music close it all. The way like so yeah see, grab the column hold the come on just did it a minute, bro Music? How do i Laughter take some getting used to so it sits on three legs. No, like this one sits on four let’s see how sturdy is whoa all right, let’s see all right. This one is more sturdy. I don’t know why it’s got three legs. Let me just think about it: this one’s got three, but not because the phone’s heavier it’s about staying weight for some reason, let’s put it higher.
This is more sturdy, i think it’s, because the legs are longer and it’s slightly wider, it’s more sturdy with this one. The the leg is slightly weaker, but this is compensated because a little extra leg at the bottom anyway i’m well impressed it fits. But this is more fidgety as well. You have to get the you have to play around with the leg and it wouldn’t stand on. The three just have that extra one. Maybe i’m well i’m, well impressed with this one what’s it doing. Music i’m well impressed that’s the my latest addition to my camera gear and something that i needed something to hold my phone, because you know when you ask about people, take notice of cameras, you only got cameras. What is the phone straight forward in your eye? Pocket and you can walk around with a selfie stick Music get used to this locks in pull out a selfie that’s going to come in useful Music. That is pretty good and do check out the links in the description for the website. What is it called atom? Tech website, and also the amazon page where i bought it from that is pretty good i’m. Well. Impressed compact holds the phone got a lip, so he’s not going to fall out. Oh wait! This is more Music it’s more. It rotates that is 360.. What the it rotates 360 as well, that is flexible that’s what you call flexible well, none of these are clear on the web page on amazon that you can grow turns 360.
it’s even better. So how would i use that? If, if i need to hold it at an angle, i can just rotate it like that yeah. So if you can’t get it somewhere, you have to yeah like that. You’Re leaning in you can just hold it like that. That is good. Music let’s have a look see if you wan na yeah. So instead of getting your arm stretched, you have to catch them up you, you can’t, stand behind it, so you just rotate. That makes it much easier, so that’s the i can take i’m impressed. What have we got any negatives? Well, Music, um Music on this one i’m, just going to leave it on Music, no negatives, it’s, better it’s got a lot of movement and angles as well clicks into place so it’s stable. So when, if you’re videoing it’s not going to be shaking it’s just like, but it clicks there yeah Laughter yeah, i also put the movement and it does 360. Music yeah you like, so you can be videoing like that horizontal that’s gon na come in useful. This is excellent better than i thought it’d be yeah looks you can hold it like that i’ve been normally underneath it. You like this with this one. You can just go like that. So i made the right choice. It is a good camera. I mean a selfie. Stick stand made of metal as well. This is metal. This is plastic.
The legs are i’m sure the combination there’s some metal in there. How do you do? Is you push it down? Yeah push it down and pull it up. The legs are plastic, but there’s metal. Underneath so there’s some metal in there somewhere, this is metal. The telescopic thing is Music that’s metallic. It goes up quite far at least a meter, so that’s the atom tech stand compared to the previous one. You can see it’s taller and remember this one ends here. The rest is the camera that is the camera. Is this one goes right to the top well there’s screens there and it goes higher, so it’s a lot taller significantly taller than the other one yeah i’m, not gon na. I know this one’s gon na be wobbling. Oh no it’s wobbling see this is the problem with this one, if it’s too high it’s going to blow over and win what’s this one night, let’s have a look Music it’s a little bit of wobble, but i wouldn’t, although i wouldn’t risk it in wind, so Let’S see what the safe height is, so if you’re outdoors let’s lower this okay, i would be comfortable having that at that level, but this one i wouldn’t be comfortable, leaving form that high let’s load. It yeah hear that that feels about okay. So, in terms of outdoors operating safe height, well, it’s still that’s quite a lot it’s over half a meter, yeah still significant anyway, he gets thumbs up for me, i’m glad i bought it.
It serves its purpose to hold the phone, so i’ve got two now one for ordinary cameras, one for the phone. Well, the other one is attachment. I don’t know where i’ll put it with this one, the added bonuses the attachment is built into the selfie, stick Laughter. That’S what i wanted i don’t want to be lumbering around a separate attachment. It goes straight into the you know, the holder, so it’s, invisible and it’s about the same and it’s the same as the other one is when it’s fully closed. You know the length of the stick when it’s fully closed Music excellent, so do check out the links in the description. If you, if you’re looking for one, i made the right choice.
