    The stick, named N-MP001, is a standard Nikon-branded selfie stick that attaches to compatible cameras via the tripod mount and allows you to "conveniently and easily take self-portrait photos".

    The Japanese company said its selfie stick is compatible with its entire range of Coolpix compact cameras, growing from 7.28 inches in its compact form to 28.54 inches when fully extended.

    It simply attaches to your camera and positions it further away from you than your arm can reach -- you'll need to come up with your own strategy for triggering the shots, such as using the camera's self timer.

    Selfie sticks are becoming increasingly popular around the world, but the pushback is getting stronger as well.

    Many museums and public venues are issuing bans on the sticks for the safety and enjoyment of their visitors and attendees.
