This time, we will be going over what we feel is the best selfie stick for Fujifilm x70 cameras on the market right now. Although the x70 only comes in at 0.75lbs and is definitely on the lightweight side of the cameras it does have a pretty hefty price tag so we would not recommend you use a traditional flimsy selfie stick on the off chance the stick fails and sends your camera crashing to the floor.
Thankfully, a new generation of selfie sticks is exponentially growing in popularity since their release onto the market as they are essentially super strength selfie sticks. These new super-strength sticks are very robust and can support a much higher payload than the traditional selfie sticks meaning your x70 is much safer when mounted on one of these. Thankfully, these newer, stronger sticks are also very budget friendly and retail at a much similar price point to the older weaker sticks.
The Fugetek FT-568
The whole stick has been designed to be as easy to use as possible meaning that you are able to mount your Fujifilm x70 on the stick within seconds and begin snapping selfies as required. The design of the handle on the Fugetek FT-568 has also undergone an overhaul from previous generations of selfie sticks so you can hold it with your camera mounted without getting cramps or any discomfort in your hand as it is very comfortable.
Due to this, the overall image quality of your selfies improves if you are planning to take multiple selfies over an extended period of time as you are able to easily hold the weight of the stick and capture photographs as required without having to take breaks or swap the weight between your hands.
Although other selfie stick manufacturers have also started to increase the maximum length of their sticks, the Fugetek FT-568 was one of the first to offer a maximum extendable length of over forty inches while still supporting its full payload weight. When fully extended the stick will be forty-nine inches long allowing you to really capture the landscape behind you and get as much detail in your selfie as possible.
All in all, the Fugetek FT-568 is an excellent, budget-friendly selfie stick that you can use to safely mount your Fujifilm x70 without needing to worry about the stick breaking and your camera falling to the floor and breaking. It is cheap, easy to pick up and has earned itself an excellent reputation within the community due to how well it performs with cameras of all weights.

A Homemade Selfie Stick (Its Easier Than You Think!)
To make your own selfie stick you will need the following equipment:-
- A decent budget friendly monopod (Click here to check for product prices and availability).
- A cheap tripod head that swivels (Click here to check for product prices and availability).
- OPTIONAL – A wireless remote that can trigger your Fujifilm x70 (Click here to check for product prices and availability).
Once you have all of the above, you attach the tripod head onto the mounting thread of the monopod so you are able to angle the head as you wish and then you mount your camera onto the tripod head. Simply aim your camera where you wish, raise your homemade selfie stick up to capture a photograph and then trigger your camera using the optional wireless remote if you chose to pick it up too.
We would like to point out that we have seen some smartphone apps that say they support wireless remote triggering of the Fujifilm x70 but from the reports of those apps, it seems that this is incorrect. Unfortunately, apps come and go at such a quick pace we are unable to make any kind of comprehensive list so our advice would be just to download free apps and try them providing you are getting the apps from the official app store for your phone and it has good reviews.
