Mobile phone cameras have turned us all into a shameless bunch of vain, self-portrait taking wretches. But there's nothing wrong with loving taking pictures of yourself.
The problem is, turning your phone around and using a mirror to line up your strained smiling face is not exactly practical. It usually results in about 30 unusable photos of your forearm surrounded by bathroom shelves. Don't even pretend that front-facing cameras fully eradicate these obstacles.
The solution to the perfect selfie is as simple as you'd expect - it's the Smartphone Camera Remote and it does exactly what you think it does. Just download the free app and it'll automatically sync to the remote, then when you've got your facial muscles under control/got yer sultry duck-face on – simply press the button to trigger the shutter.
With a wireless range of up to 3 metres, you can easily squeeze you and all your friends into the frame. The handy removable prop-up stand allows you to orient your phone either landscape or portrait and the secondary button switches between the front and back facing cameras – it's thought of everything.
Now it's just up to you to think of inventive ways to conceal the remote in all your photos.
