Top 4 Advantages of the Prox PRD® Remote Selfie Clicker
Updated: Feb 27
Wayne Fromm invented the Selfie Stick in 2005, two years before anybody had an iPhone. He named it the Quik Pod and patented the device. Soon thereafter, numerous companies were producing similar knockoffs. Over time, users soon realized carrying these sticks was burdensome and eventually, theme parks and other large venues were beginning to ban them from their properties.
Taking a single photo of oneself or of a couple can quite easily be done with a single click on the phone. However, if you want to take in the surroundings or want to include numerous people at a gathering, then it becomes more difficult. That is when you resort to asking a friend or someone in your vicinity to take the picture of your group. You may or may not feel comfortable with someone handling your phone. If you can prop the phone up to take the picture, you will need to set the timer. Then, you hope everyone is in the frame and everyone is smiling with their eyes open. Good luck with that.
Introducing the remote phone camera selfie clicker
Remote selfie clickers have been around for years. They allow you to place the phone on a tripod, propped up against a glass, or held by a friend. They allow you to take multiple pictures in a row without the use of a timer. Most camera apps allow you to trigger the shutter by pressing the volume buttons. Several remote selfie clickers need to be turned on before they work and it is imperative to turn them off afterward so they don’t drain the battery. Others suffer from weak signals at further distances.
Introducing the Prox PRD® remote selfie clicker
The Prox PRD® takes advantage of this volume button shutter control by sending a remote "volume up" signal to the phone, which then causes the camera app shutter to activate and take the photo. When the camera app is not open, it will increase the volume setting on the phone. However, when a camera app is open, it takes a picture just as though you pressed the shutter button on the phone camera app. Not all camera apps have this feature, in which case the Prox PRD won't work with that camera app. Some 3rd party camera apps allow you to associate the volume button with the shutter release in the settings menu.
Top 4 Advantages of the Prox PRD® remote shutter selfie clicker
1. Simple two-click operation
This feature uses a very simple double-click. The double-click ensures you intend to take a photo. The double-click can be repeated numerous times for multiple pictures (or videos as described below).
2. Photos or Videos
Depending on the phone’s camera app setting, the double-click feature can work for both photos and videos. If the camera app is set to “photo”, then a double-click will engage the shutter and a photo will be taken. If the camera app is set to “video”, then a double-click will start the video and a second double-click will stop the video.
3. Photos can be taken at a distance
Depending on your environment, the remote shutter selfie clicker range can extend the full distance of your Bluetooth® connection. This might allow for some very interesting photos (or videos) taken at a distance. Securing your phone to a short-range drone can allow for multiple pictures to be taken rather than taking a lengthy video.
4. Photos can be taken incognito
There are times when taking photos are necessary but somewhat dangerous (e.g., process servers or potential altercations when evidence needs to be gathered and recorded legally). Having the phone in a shirt pocket or held by your side, the photos can be taken quite easily with a double click of the PRD.
The Prox PRD remote shutter selfie clicker (although a bonus feature) is becoming one of the most talked-about features of the new Prox PRD phone reminder device. The Prox PRD is now available on Amazon Prime.
