Travel Experta’s Pick of the Week – Pix Pal Camera Extender

I don’t know about you, but there have been times when either my husband and I were standing against a gorgeous backdrop and no one to take a photo of us. The same for a family shots. Sometimes you’re simply the only ones around. After many sad attempts, I started to search the web for a solution. I found it!

A camera extender!

I immediately contacted Brian and Amanda of Get Pix Pal to learn about their product which they personally designed. It’s a great tool created by travelers for travelers.

After they sent me a sample, we went to town taking pictures. Here’s the difference:

Big difference!

The PixPal is light and easy to use. It extends as much as you want it to, with flexibility. One thing I found to help hold the camera better in place is to tighten the screw for the end piece that holds the camera steady. It can get loose and the camera becomes wobbly. But once it’s secured you too can go nuts!

Thanks Amanda and Brian for sending me your great product!

    I’d definitely love to add the extender to our kit. We always find ourselves in the same situation and are greatly lacking in photos of the two of us. Thanks for introducing us to this.

    • I love it. It took some time to get used, since we forgot how to take photos of all of us or just me and my husband, but now it’s addicting.

      Now we’re moving on to Tripods!
