We have decided to publish an article covering what we feel is the best selfie stick for FujiFilm xp120 cameras for our readers as we have noticed a number of people reaching out over the last month or so. Now, even though the xp120 is a pretty small camera, for its size, it is actually pretty heavy coming in at just under one pound.
Although you may be able to get away with using a traditional selfie stick with the xp120, we would not recommend it as it can be difficult to find the maximum payload limits of the sticks you purchase from stalls. Thankfully, the stronger, more reliable next-generation sticks are now in full swing with many of them being available on the market and some of them actually being excellent bits of equipment.
In this article, we will be going over what we feel is the best next-gen selfie stick that will easily be able to support the weight of your FujiFilm xp120 while also being able to support your smartphone or action camera when required.
The Fugetek FT-568
In our opinion, the best selfie stick for FujiFilm xp120 cameras on the market right now is most definitely the Fugetek FT-568 (Click here to check for product prices and availability). It is one of the most popular sticks currently available on the market right now and can easily support the weight of your xp120 and has the proven ability to support cameras much heavier than it without any problems.
The Fugetek FT-568 is one of the first next-generation selfie sticks to make it to market that is able to support the increased load of heavier cameras meaning it benefited greatly from its first mover advantage. Thankfully, Fugetek smashed it out the park with the stick and it’s excellent performance, build quality, and functionality has helped make it extremely popular.
The large number of people who use the stick means that it has a ton of reviews (click here to read some of them) online that you can take a quick read of if you wish. They offer some great insight into the performance of the stick and offer an external, independent opinion on its performance.
A number of different mounts and additional attachments are also included as standard with your purchase of the Fugetek FT-568 and there are a number of additional ones that you can purchase if you need them. These help increase the functionality of the stick even further by allowing you to mount a smartphone or an action camera on it if required. Depending on what you are planning on using the stick for, this can help increase the type of photography’s you can capture with it allowing you to keep snapping no matter what.
As the Fugetek FT-568 has been specifically designed to work with higher weight cameras the handle has been totally overhauled compared to the handles on traditional selfie sticks. Although the xp120 is only around one pound, the comfortable handle on the selfie stick allows you to easily hold it for extended periods of time without issues like cramps or discomfort in your hand.
If you are looking to pick up a solid, budget-friendly, selfie stick for your xp120 then we would highly recommend that you pick up the Fugetek FT-568. Its well-earned reputation amongst the community is excellent and the stick is held in very high regard.

A Homemade Selfie Stick (Its Easier Than You Think!)
To make your own selfie stick for your xp120 you will need the following:-
- A decent, cheap, heavy duty monopod (Click here to check for product prices and availability).
- Swivel Mini Tripod Ball Head (Click here to check for product prices and availability).
Once you have them you simply mount the head on the monopod body and then add your camera to the ball heat attachment. This will allow you to angle your camera in the direction needed for you to capture the best selfie possible with minimal effort.
There are a few different ways that you are able to remotely trigger your camera although finding a cheap wireless remote is a bit of a pain for the xp120. Many people choose to simply use the build in timer setting of the camera to capture their photograph and recording video using a home made stick is even easier. Just set the camera up to record video footage and then clip the start of the video in post production as required.
