EEEKit selfie stick / monopod with tripod stand and case for Samsung Gear 360 and other 360 cameras
The kit looks quite similar to the accessory kit that came with preorders for the Nikon Keymission 360:
1. Selfie stick / monopod. The kit includes a selfie stick that collapses to 7 inches and extends to 28 inches, and includes a ballhead.
As you can see the structure, the number of segments, and even the length are almost the same. The primary difference is the type of tripod attachment. I don't know how the EEEKit ballhead performs but if the shaft and handle are indeed the same as the Nikon one, then it's light and sturdy with very little flex compared to other selfie sticks I've tried.
2. Tripod legs.
Unlike the Keymission's tripod legs, the tripod legs here have no ballhead, which makes them more stable but makes them less versatile for inclined surfaces. However, because the tripod legs here use a 1/4-20 attachment, you can attach a ballhead in between the legs and the monopod if you want the ability to tilt the monopod, at a cost of lower stability.
3. Camera bag
Samsung Gear 360 but can also be adapted for other 360 cameras by cutting the styrofoam.
The kit currently costs about $30 on Amazon and I think it's a pretty good deal. I've ordered one myself and will be posting a review when I get it.
