We have been seeing people reaching out for advice on a selfie stick that they can use for their Fujifilm xp80 camera and decided to publish this article for any of our readers who have the same question. Thankfully, the Fuji xp80 is a very light camera coming in at only 0.39lbs meaning that there are plenty of selfie stick options available on the market that can easily support the weight of your camera with ease.
For this article, we will be covering a traditional selfie stick system that anyone can pick up and use within seconds as well as going over how you are able to quickly and easily make your own homemade selfie stick for your xp80. Due to the low weight of the camera, we would imagine that most of our readers would be better off just picking up a premade, ready to go selfie stick rather than trying to make their own but as more and more people are choosing to make their own sticks we decided to include it in the article anyway.

The Fugetek FT-568
As the stick has been designed to be able to support the weight of a full DSLR camera with a heavy lens it will easily be able to support the 0.39lbs of your Fujifilm xp80. On top of this, the stick can also be extended to a maximum length of forty-nine inches to enable you to capture as much of the background of your image as possible if you wish. Although more and more selfie sticks are being released that have a similar maximum extended length, the Fugetek FT-568 was the first to be able to reach such lengths while still supporting its full advertises maximum payload limit.
One thing that we always see people complaining about when it comes to selfie sticks is how uncomfortable their handles are when held for long periods of time. Thankfully, due to the Fugetek FT-568 having been designed for use with heavy DSLR cameras that are at least five times heavier than your Fujifilm xp80 the handle has been designed to be very comfortable when supporting large amounts of weight. As your xp80 is very light the design of the sticks handles becomes even more effective further reducing any discomfort that you may feel in your hand when using the stick enabling you to easily use it for long periods of time without issue.
Just like many other selfie sticks available on the market right now, the Fugetek FT-568 also comes with a number of attachments and mounts so you are able to use the stick in a number of different ways. For example, the smartphone mount can be attached to the stick to allow you to quickly and easily use the stick with your smartphone of choice and capture selfies as you wish in addition to swapping your smartphone out for your Fujifilm xp80 when required.
Finally, it couldn’t be easier to mount your Fujifilm xp80 on the Fugetek FT-568 either. Simply attach your camera to the thread at the end of the selfie sticks swivel head with no other attachments or mounts on it and you can be ready to snap selfies in as little as ten seconds.

- A smartphone app to remotely trigger your Fujifilm xp80. (Optional)
Once you have the items above you just mount the ball head attachment onto the thread on the end of the monopod and then mount your Fujifilm xp80 onto the ball head. This will allow you to hold your camera out in any possition you like while angleing it as you wish via the tripod. You can then remotely trigger your camera to capture photographs via a smartphone app and capture selfies as you wish.
Now some people would class this as the best selfie stick for Fujifilm xp80 as you can customise it as you wish for your own specific requirement but most people preffer to just purchase a premade option. One thing that we would like to say is that the various smartphone apps on the market change at a very fast pace so we are able to check them all so you will have to do a little research to find an app that will work with your devices.
