In this article, we will be taking a look at what we feel is the best selfie stick for Sony a5100 cameras currently available on the market right now as well as one of the best alternatives out there. We have noticed a steadily increasing number of a5100 users reaching out for assistance on suitable selfie sticks for their camera due to the majority being designed for smartphone use.
We have chosen two very strong, robust, and camera-friendly sticks to cover that both have excellent reputations within the photography community. Either of these sticks will work with your a5100 and allow you to safely take selfies without needing to worry about the selfie stick breaking and your camera getting damaged.
The Fugetek FT-568 Professional Selfie Stick
This has helped the Fugetek FT-568 quickly earn an excellent reputation within the photography markets and it also has a number of Sony a5100 users currently using it and reporting good things.
The stick is classed as ultra extendable due to it being able to extend to a maximum length of forty-nine inches while still fully supporting the 0.62 lb weight of your a5100. The flip based lock system on each of the extendable sections of the stick ensures that it is secure when in use and will not buckle under the weight of your cameras.
This can offer you peace of mind when capturing photographs with the stick as you don’t have to worry about the stick failing and your camera falling to the ground and potentially breaking. The handle of the stick has a specifically designed rubber grip to allow you to comfortably hold the selfie stick while extended with your a5100 is mounted on it without feeling any discomfort at all.
The selfie stick can also be used with a smartphone with additional mounts available for action cameras if needed allowing you to quickly and easily swap between the type of camera that you are using to capture your photograph or record your videos. This versatility has helped further increase the popularity of the Fugetek FT-568 due to opening it up to more people rather than just focusing on one small niche.
All in all, we feel that the Fugetek FT-568 is an excellent Sony Alpha a5100 selfie stick that offers an easy to use, budget-friendly, and robust selfie stick that will work without issue with your a5100.
The video below offers an additional third-party, independent review for the Fugetek FT-568 to offer our readers an independent opinion of the product.
The Dolica WT-1003 67-Inch Lightweight Monopod
This helps ensure that they are strong enough to hold the weight of your camera and quite often, the weight of your camera as well as a decent lens, flash, mic, or any other accessories without buckling under the weight. We would recommend the Dolica WT-1003 due to its excellent build quality, performance, excellent reputation, and pricing.
The monopods ultra lightweight aluminum construction has been designed to be as robust as possible while also being as lightweight as possible. It is easily able to support a payload of 6.7 pounds meaning it leaves plenty of spare weight for accessories when being used with your a5100.
