Every now and then we see people reaching out for recommendations on selfie sticks for Nikon d750 cameras. Due to the d750 being a pretty heavy camera most people are correctly skeptical about even attempting to mount it on a traditional selfie stick. Thankfully, a new generation of selfie sticks have hit the market that has been specifically designed to be able to support the weight of heavier cameras and that is what we will be focusing on for this article.
We will be featuring one fully fledges next generation selfie stick that is easily able to support the weight of a DSLR or mirrorless camera. At the end of the article, we will also be going over how you are able to quickly and easily make your own very cheap selfie stick that can easily support the weight of your d750 too. Although many people instantly discount the option to simply make their own homemade selfie stick, it is becoming increasingly popular, especially with owners of heavier cameras and it can sometimes work out cheaper than purchasing a selfie stick and takes thirty seconds of your time to build it.
The Fugetek FT-568
The stick has also been specifically designed to be as long as possible when fully extended allowing you to get the best possible selfie while also capturing as much of the background as possible. The max extended length of the stick is 49 inches that is a fair bit longer than the traditional selfie sticks too. The handle of the Fugetek FT-568 is also slightly different to the handle that is used by most traditional selfie sticks too. The handle has been specifically designed to be a comfortable as possible while also being very easy to hold and control the stick. The main advantage of this is that you are able to hold the stick with your d750 mounted on it for extended period of time while capturing selfies and not feel any discomfort at all.
A number of attachments for action cameras and smartphones are also included with the Fugetek FT-568 as standard. This allows you to quickly and easily hot swap between the devices that you have mounted on the stick with minimal effort as required. For example, say you are in Iceland and you are wanting to capture an epic selfie of yourself with your d750 to capture as much of the landscape as possible but then you want to swap to an action camera to record yourself jumping in a hot water spring. You can literally swap cameras within ten seconds and crack on as you wish.
We always see people asking how you actually connect your DSLR or mirrorless system to the Fugetek FT-568 and this tends to be due to people thinking that you need one of the actual mounts that is included with the stick. Simply remove any mounts that you have attatched so you are left with the swivel head on the end of the stick and mount your camera on the screw of the swivel head. It is the same thread size of a tripod so will easily allow you to mount your camera quickly.

A Homemade Selfie Stick (Its Easier Than You Think!)
- A cheap but high-quality monopod (Click here to check for product prices and availability).
- A cheap swivel mini tripod ball head (Click here to check for product prices and availability).
- A wireless remote for your d750 OPTIONAL (Click here to check for product prices and availability).
Once you have the above items you literally mount the swivel ball head on to top of the monopod so you are able to mount your Nikon d750 onto it and angle it as required. You can then extend the monopod as required and use the wireless remote to trigger your camera to capture selfies if you choose to pick one up.
In addition to providing the selfie stick functionality for your d750, using this system also has the advantage of being able to provide you with image stabilisation via the actual monopod when needed too. All you have to do is remove the swivel ball head from the monopod, mount your camera onto the monopod and then go about capturing photographs with your camera mounted on your monopod. This has proven a very popular option with people who are traveling around and need to minimise the weight and size of their photography kit too.
