In this article, we will be taking a look at what we feel is the best selfie stick for Sony a6300 cameras currently available on the market right now. The main problem when looking for a selfie stick is that the vast majority of them are designed to support the weight of a smartphone, not the weight of a mirrorless camera or DSLR.
Thankfully, this trend is slowly changing and there are a few selfie sticks on the market these days that are able to support the weight of a larger camera. We hope that this article will help any of our readers who are a6300 owners and looking for a selfie stick as we know it can be a minefield.
The Fugetek FT-568
The Fugetek FT-568 offers you a very budget friendly selfie stick that can support the weight of your a6300 even when extended to its longer lengths. The stick has been designed with easy to use flip locks that allow you to quickly lock the selfie stick in place allowing it to keep your camera safe and secure during use offering peace of mind.
The stick also offers the ability to extend out to a longer than usual forty-nine inches allowing you to capture a wider angle than other selfie sticks helping to capture some truly epic landscape vistas with you in the photograph. As the stick is also usable with smartphones and action cameras you are able to quickly switch between devices to ensure you are able to get the exact photograph that you want.
The comfortable hand grip on the stick allows you to comfortably hold it even with your camera mounted for extended periods of time without feeling discomfort. If you are planning to use the stick for vlogging then this is ideal as you are able to record footage for long periods of time with minimal effort allowing you to focus on talking.
When you are using the Fugetek FT-568 to vlog with your a6300 we would recommend that you keep the stick shorter making it easier for your viewers to focus on you during your video. When you are using the stick to take a selfie we would recommend that you extend it to either its mid or maximum range to allow it to help capture as much of the landscape behind you as possible.
All in all, we feel that the FT-568 is by far the best selfie stick on the market right now for mirrorless cameras or DSLR cameras. It can easily support the weight of a large number of cameras on the market right now having plenty of weight spare for many of them to allow for the use of accessories such as lenses, microphones or flashes. The stick is also cheap enough for you to replace it easily and quickly if you misplace it during your travels.

The Dolica WT-1003
With this being a fully fledged monopod, it also beings that functionality to that is missing from traditional selfie sticks. This means that you may be off on a trip, want to take a selfie of a landscape photography with you in it and then swap from a selfie stick to a monopod to allow you to take an epic panoramic photograph or do a slow pan with video to capture the beauty of the view in full.
The Dolica WT-1003 can also be compressed to be smaller than many selfie sticks out on the market while also being just as light. This allows you to easily take it on holiday with you without the need to waste space or weight in your luggage allowance.
Using a monopod for vlogging is easy enough, simply mount your a6300 onto your monopod, press record and then extend it to record you as you talk but using it for photographic selfies can be a little more of a challenge. The two main options are to either set up a timer in your camera’s settings and then raise it to capture the photograph you want with the second being raising the camera into position before using a remote trigger or one of the various smartphone apps to trigger the camera and capture the photograph.
All in all, the WT-1003 is a decent addition to your photography kit. It can provide more functionality than a traditional selfie stick while potentially being more reliable than many of the selfie sticks on the market right now.
