Moorestown, NJ—SeaLife’s newest addition to its AquaPod line, the AquaPod Mini, was originally intended as an extendable underwater monopod that allows divers to get up close to sea creatures while remaining at a safe distance. But the device has taken on a new purpose as a selfie stick for outdoor or underwater use.
It features non-corrosive parts, an anodized aluminum body, stainless steel hardware and a rubberized grip to provide users with an ergonomic camera pole that can be taken to the depths of the oceans or the tops of mountains. The AquaPod Mini mounts all cameras with a standard ¼–20 tripod mount and includes adapters for GoPro cameras.
Designed to capture both video and photos from unique perspectives, the device extends from 15.5 inches out to a maximum of 38 inches, yet is compact and travel friendly.
“While our intention with the AquaPod Mini was initially geared more for underwater use, its role and popularity as a ruggedized selfie stick makes complete sense,” said Joshua Gilmour, SeaLife’s marketing manager. “The selfie stick has become immensely popular over the past year, and the AquaPod Mini offers the durability and design for multiple uses in all climates and conditions.”
The original SeaLife AquaPod, which measures 18 inches when retracted and 53 inches when fully extended, is available for a suggested retail price of $69.95. The AquaPod Mini retails for $49.95.
