Quik Pod Review and Giveaway

Being a blogger, I take a lot of self portraits. I take pictures of myself, and my kids when we are at events, and when I am trying to get a photo for a product review. Like recently, I was trying to get a picture of me wearing an apron I got to review, and couldn't get the camera far enough away, so I asked Xander to help me..his picture of me was less than flattering, and he got bored with it quickly.

I was so excited to find out about Quik Pod! It's basically a tripod that you hold in your hand to get some distance between you and the camera. You use the self timer function (free download at iTunes) or if you want to use it with a regular point and shoot camera that works too.
