SeaLife’s New AquaPod Mini is a Rugged “Selfie Stick”
for Divers and Outdoor Enthusiasts
SeaLife introduced the newest addition to its AquaPod line recently, the AquaPod Mini. Originally intended as an extendable underwater monopod that can mount any camera to allow divers to get up close and personal to sea creatures while remaining at a safe distance, the AquaPod Mini has taken on a whole new purpose. Unlike popular “selfie sticks,” the AquaPod is designed for serious outdoor or underwater use with extreme durability and non-corrosive parts. The ¼-20 and GoPro mounts allow for the mounting of just about any camera.
Think of it as the “selfie stick” for divers and outdoor enthusiasts, designed to be used either underwater to get closer to sea creatures or above water in the most extreme situations. The anodized aluminum body, stainless steel hardware and rubberized grip on the AquaPod Mini provides users with a rugged, ergonomically designed camera pole that can be taken to the depths of the oceans or to the tops of mountains to capture both video and still images from amazing perspectives. Extending from 15.5 inches out to a maximum of 38 inches, the AquaPod Mini 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 AquaPod Mini is available at SeaLife dealers for a suggested retail price of $49.95. 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. Both AquaPods mount all cameras with a standard 1/4-20 tripod mount and include adapters for GoPro cameras.
