Slik S Pole: Add This for More Height

Slik S Pole

This one’s for paparazzis and spy-types. The Slik “S pole digital” (sorry, mangled by translation software) is long enough to shove your camera over fences and barricades, and also enables shots above crowds.

The Slik S pole is designed for digital SLR cameras whose owners won’t mind its $58 price, but it apparently could carry compacts too, why not? Its telescoping body is composed of a thick main tube while the extending tubes are thin.

The Slik S pole is compact and can easily fit in a camera bag. It’s a foot long when retracted and adds two feet more when extended. For even more height, the pole can be attached to a tripod.

How do you press the shutter button? The Slik S pole doesn’t come with a finger extender, dummy. You use your expensive camera’s remote control, that’s how. Now, where is Gorgeous Star trysting with THAT senator?
