    Has this happened to you? At the turn-around point in the hike a mountain looms behind you decorated with snowy peaks and gushing waterfalls. You’d like to take a photo with you in the scene to prove to friends that “yes, I did hike that challenging trail in Glacier National Park.” Looking around, you realize there’s no one to ask to take the picture so the opportunity is missed. Or, you pull out the QuikPod monopod that you tucked inside your backpack, extend it, attach the smartphone adapter, place the iphone or smartphone into the holder (remember you’re traveling light) and take your own photo or video. How cool is that?

    Quik Pod Explorer II

    QuikPod Explorer II comes with carrying bag, hiking clip, wrist strap and more

    I’ve been practicing with the QuikPod EXPLORER II and Mobile – Smartphone Adapter (priced at $59.84 on Amazon) so that I can use the monopod on our upcoming road trip to Vancouver Island. Here’s what I like about it:

    • Folds up into a small carrying bag making the QuikPod easy to transport
    • Built-in mirror guarantees that you are in the shot
    • Assembles quickly so that you don’t miss that shot (the sunset won’t stay in the same spot forever)
    • Waterproof construction (we’ll be using with our waterproof camera for cool underwater shots and videos)

    Let me show you how it works (if you can’t see the video, click here: QuikPod Explorer II video review)

    Now that you’ve seen it in action, what do you think of the QuikPod Explorer II with Mobile adapter? Would you like to win one? Here’s how:
