When I am out and about with my kids, I love to take family selfies. You know, so I can document where we were or what we were doing. I have two issues with taking family selfies, though. The main issue is that I am short and therefore have short arms, making it almost impossible for me to fit four people into the frame when I hold my phone out. Someone almost inevitably gets cut out of cut off – usually my little man because he’s much shorter than the rest of us. My next issue is my husband. He’s much taller than I am and since his arms are longer and he could actually fit all four of us into the picture, I have had him try time and time again to get a good picture of the four of us. The thing is – he can’t. I don’t know what it is, but every single photo he takes comes out blurry. Every time.
So between those two things, it’s rare that I get a good photo of the four of us. You’re probably thinking “well, why don’t you just use a selfie stick??” and the answer is I could, but too many places have them banned now so it’s not even worth trying anymore. And it makes me sad that we can’t get a good family photo (unless we accost someone walking by to take one of us), or at least it did until I found out about the Pi SOLO.
Pi SOLO is the world’s first immersive lifestyle camera for your smartphone! Just launched in the US. Pi SOLO (www.Pi-SOLO.com) is a camera for augmented reality combining social media and photography. Now you can fit everything in one frame without worrying about carrying around extra equipment. A super wide-angle lens also allows users to easily fit in everyone for a group selfie or capture full backgrounds without having to use a selfie stick.
Pi SOLO takes video as well as still images via an app-based wide-angle camera that is lightweight, compact and wearable, making it the perfect travel companion. It also connects directly to the Facebook app for easy photo-sharing or a Facebook Live experience.
To start using the Pi SOLO, you will have to download their free app. All the photos will be taken on your phone via the app, but you use the Pi Solo as the lens.
Newly released augmented reality features allow users to hold a burning sun in their hands or even take a group photo in a snow globe. The Pi SOLO app allows users to make fun edits to images, like panoramic photos, Little Planet, or a better-than-fish-eye photo. Check out this YouTube video to see Pi SOLO in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROHyOd5IFLk
As you can probably tell, we’ve been having a lot of fun with the Pi SOLO. The best part is that all the photos you take using the app save right to the camera roll on your phone.
Pi SOLO is available on Amazon for $259. For more details, visit www.pi-solo.com.
I am super happy with the Pi SOLO. The super wide angle feature is perfect for taking those family selfies that I want so badly. Plus, it takes awesome group photos and gorgeous panoramas! I am so excited to keep using it and keep getting those awesome shots!
