We have seen a number of m100 owners reaching out asking for advice on what the best selfie stick for Canon m100 cameras on the market is. We have taken the time to publish this article covering the subject hoping that it will be able to help as many of our readers who own an m100 as possible.
Although the m100 only weighs 0.67lbs we still wouldn’t risk using a traditional selfie stick that was designed for smartphones with it. We really don’t like the idea of breaking a camera that costs a few hundred dollars because we tried to save a little money on a selfie stick that couldn’t support its weight. Thankfully, there is hope, the stick we will be featuring in this article is robust and easily able to support the weight of your m100 without issue. On top of this, it is retailed at a very similar price point as other selfie sticks meaning there is no need to spend more than you would otherwise be spending anyway.
The Fugetek FT-568
Speaking of smartphones, the Fugetek FT-568 also comes with a number of mounts and attachments included as standard to allow you to use it with your smartphone or a number of action cameras in addition to your Canon m100. That said, when mounting your m100 there is no need to use any attachments simply mount it on the screw of the swivel head at the end of the stick and go about capturing selfies as required.
The stock of the Fugetek FT-568 is more like a full-blown monopod rather than a selfie stick although it is still very lightweight and easy to use it can easily support the 0.67lbs weight of your Canon m100. The stick also comes with a longer than average maximum extended length of forty-nine inches allowing you to capture better wide angle selfies with more of the background behind you if you like without needing to overextend your arm in an uncomfortable position.
All in all, if you are looking to pick up a full blow selfie stick for your Canon m100 then we would highly recommend the Fugetek FT-568. Its payload is easily able to support the weight of the m100 as well as the weight of many other popular mirrorless and DSLR cameras that you may have in your collection and want to capture selfies with.

A Homemade Selfie Stick (Its Easier Than You Think!)
- A budget-friendly monopod (Click here to check for product prices and availability).
- A cheap Mini Tripod Ball Head (Click here to check for product prices and availability).
Once you have those items you literally just mount the tripod head on the monopod and you can then mount your Canon m100 on the tripod head and angle it as required. The optional bit of equipment that you can add to this setup is a wireless remote for your Canon m100 to allow you to remotely trigger it as you wish.
The problem is that the m100 does not support the Canon remote control RC-6 protocol that the wireless remote controls use. Although we have seen a number of reports from people mentioning various smartphone applications that you can try to use to trigger your camera, we have not actually used these apps yourself and can’t confirm if they do in fact sync to your Canon m100 or not.
Now the main advantage of building your own selfie stick in this way is that the monopod used as the stick body is very robust and can easily support the weight of your m100. Additionally, if you ever need the functionality of a monopod then you can spend ten seconds unmounting the tripod head on the monopod and use its own static mounting thread to attach your m100 and then get the monopod functionality out of the stick too.
In our opinion, building your own homemade selfie stick is only going to end up increasing in popularity in the years to come. Not only is it very cheap and easy to do but it is also highly customisable allowing you to build your own rig that is perfect for your own camera and circumstances.
