Selfie stick

To begin with, you would have to have a very light digital camera since selfie sticks are designed to be used with cell phones.

Next, assuming your camera is very light, how do you propose to press the shutter button?
Without any connection and very few, if any digital cameras have even Bluetooth built in, you will have to use the self timer function every time you want to take a picture.

Some Selfie Sticks..

There are some sticks that are under $20.00 in most Walgreens or other drug stores that will plug into your Headset and will snap the photo (it uses the vol control for this for android).

Also you must remember that a lot of National Museums now do not let selfie sticks in due to many people were getting hurt or just in the way.

If you put a rubber nub on the end of the selfie stick you might claim it's your "walking stick" razz

I would be very

I would be very uncomfortable placing a digital camera on a selfie stick. The weight would make it fragile in my opinion.

CAMERA

The OP definitely stated he wants to use a camera and not a cellphone!
There are some very light cameras available! But as I said before
how do you take a picture without any wireless or wired connection? The selftimer will be the only option!

I have used a small light FUJI camera but it is a convoluted process using the selftimer.

selfie stick

I have a selfie stick Yunteng 1288 with a camera screw adapter and the extended stick is locked that prevent the camera from rolling due to its weight.

As Melaqueman, mentioned the only option is using the self timer function.

My previous camera had an infrared remote. OK indoors, but useless in bright sun. Generally used on a tripod, but that was a hassle.

Buy a cheap used cell with camera feature you want and use only as a camera.

What happened to the good old days?

I went traveling across country a couple years back. We asked couples if they wanted their picture taken and in return if they would take ours. Worked every time and we didn't have to worry about the framing and composition for the most part. No timer required, no extra gear. If you don't like the outcome, just ask another couple. wink Human interaction is undervalued.

I'm convinced only robots are in the world these days!

Of course, you could always file a FOI to each city to acquire truly "Candid" pictures of yourself razz

Probably not the OP

I think in this day and age some people are paranoid, they figure everyone but themselves is not trustworthy. Hence selfie sticks !

I don't care that much about pictures of myself - although if I have the tripod out for a shot, sometimes I'll take a "selfie" that way - but many times when I'm traveling and I see people trying to figure out how to get a shot of themselves in front of something famous, I'll go over and offer to take the shot for them.

There was the one time when they saw my big camera and asked "But how will you get us the pictures?" I smiled and said "I'll just hand your camera back to you..." smile

Practical in some cases, very impractical in other cases. I seldom care about having my photo taken with a specific background, but in many cases when I do, there are no other human beings around.

My solution is to carry a pocket tripod. Not intended for stability in a high wind, and limited in its other capabilities, but it will do what I want - most of the time.

So do I, except the one I have has 3 tiny feet in an enclosure and the rest of the tiny tripod is just like a " C " clamp which is very handy.
Had it for decades so probably unavailable nowadays.
