Imagine you are in that perfect scenic spot in the backcounty, or in front of a summit sign and want to snap a photo of yourself in that moment, and there is no one around to take it for you. Or if you are like me, and want to shoot a trail Vlog, you have to carry an extra piece of gear to extend your video camera. There is a better solution.

The 10-gram StickPic. It Quickly attaches your camera to the end of your hiking pole, and snaps a beautiful, well-proportioned, perfectly centered picture of herself and her surroundings. Even better, while using the StickPic, you can use the video feature on your digital camera and makes a vivid documentary about your trip. If a picture says a thousand words, a video says a million!

Weighing only 10.5 grams, it comes in five different models, to fit 90% of all common trekking poles. A prototype of the original StickPic was first introduced to the hiking community at the Tenth Annual Day Zero Pacific Crest Trail Kick Off at Lake Morena County Park in San Diego on April 25, 2008. They now have 150 through-hikers testing the StickPic on their journeys and we’re gathering comments, suggestions, and success stories to help them perfect this exciting product.
