We have noticed a steady number of people reaching out to ask what the best selfie stick for Olympus tg4 cameras currently available on the market is so we decided to publish this article. We are hoping that any of our Olympus tg4 owning readers will find it useful and helpful as the selfie stick market can be a total nightmare to navigate these days.
Although the Olympus tg4 is a very light camera coming in at just over 0.54 pounds, we would always recommend that you choose to pick up a high-quality but cheap selfie stick that will serve you well and ensure your camera is safe while mounted to the stick.
The Fugetek FT-568
This will give you peace of mind that your camera is totally safe when mounted on the stick and won’t fall victim to the stick buckling under its weight sending your camera crashing down to earth. The popularity of the stick has resulted in literally thousands of independent reviews (click here to read some of them) that offer you a great, third-party insight into the performance of the stick that we feel you should read if you have time.
Although the stick can expand to an absolutely massive maximum length of forty-eight inches without it having any effect on its maximum payload weight or the image stabilization the stick provides, it can actually shrink down to only sixteen inches when compressed making it very easy to store.
That and its 0.6-pound weight make this stick the perfect choice for travel selfies as you can easily add it to your luggage without it having a massive effect on your baggage allowance making your life much easier. On top of this, the stick is also weatherproofed making it resistant to water damage helping to prevent the main weakness of many of the easier selfie sticks whos performance would diminish as water damage took its effect on the stick.
If you are looking to pick up a solid little selfie stick for your Olympus tg4 then you have to consider the Fugetek FT-568. Its reputation within the community alone should be enough to make it the obvious choice but its budget-friendly price tag and excellent performance push it even further ahead of the competing stick one the market.

A Homemade Selfie Stick (Its Easier Than You Think!)
- A decent but cheap 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 swivel head onto the mounting screw of the monopod so you are able to angle your tg4 as required and then you are good to go. It literally is that easy and takes around thirty seconds to do.
This can be an ideal route to take if you are planning on needing monopod or tripod functionality while you are out and about. As your homemade selfie stick is using a monopod as its actual stick element you are able to use its monopod functionality when required to help you with image stabilization to get a better image quality for your regular photographs too. This is something that selfie sticks currently do not compete with as they are not long enough to provide you with monopod functionality while out and about.
All that said and done, as we mentioned at the start of this section, making your own homemade selfie stick for an Olympus tg4 is probably overkill but if you are planning on picking up a heavier mirrorless or DSLR camera in the future, it may be worth knowing how easy and cheap the process actually is.
