How To Get The “Invisible Selfie Stick” Effect...

May 03, 2022

In this article, I’m going to show you how you can get the “Invisible Selfie Stick” effect using your 360 camera.


Step 1: 📷

👉 Buy a 360 camera like the Insta360 X3.


Step 2: 🤳

👉 Get yourself a selfie stick like the Insta 360 Invisible Selfie Stick or the Bushman Monopod V2.


Step 3: 📸

👉 Take a photo or video with your 360 camera on that selfie stick, and voila!


That's it, there's no trick. 🙌

That's because this is one of the most common misconceptions about 360 cameras that we often see in the marketing of some 360 camera companies.

Because the way selfie sticks become invisible isn't because of an effect, but because of the fact that all 360 cameras have a blind spot directly underneath them, which eliminates everything in line with it.

You just need to make sure the selfie stick doesn't bend, and it doesn't have an angled tripod thread at the top, which it should be with a fancy one like this one or even the free one that came with your 360 camera.

It's also not camera-specific, so you can use any 360 camera from any brand. 😀

And that's it! It's not an effect or a trick, but it's how all 360 cameras work.


Happy 360ing!
