Quikpod makes sure you're in every frame

Can you ever get enough pictures of yourself? Seriously — sometimes your arm just isn't long enough to get you in the frame next to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. That's where the QuikPod comes in, a lightweight extendable monopod with a head that tilts so you can take as many self-portraits as you need. We were initially skeptical about this Shopping Channel special, but it turns out that reputable camera stores carry it as well.

The catch is that you'll have to use your camera's self-timer with this accessory since the whole point is that it's longer than your arm. Plus, it probably won't work with your high-megapixel cell phone. Narcissists everywhere can sleep easy knowing that they won't have to waste valuable hard-drive space on pictures of other people anymore.
