Argraph has just announced two inventive, low-cost "why didn't I think of that?" products for compact camera users who want to include themselves in their pictures.
Both new Argraph products are designed to help photographers get into the picture. The Bottle-Top Pod, made under the Samigon brand name, is a tripod-mount adapter that is designed to screw onto the top of a water or soda bottle. Mirror, Mirror on the Camera is a small (less than 1 inch diameter) self-adhesive self-portrait mirror that you stick onto the front of a point-and-shoot camera so you can compose self-portraits and group shots without cropping off heads. Pricing and availability to be announced.

Argraph's Bottle-Top Pod and Mirror, Mirror On The Camera. Unique Tools to Get You and Your Friends in the Picture.
Unique Tools to Get You and Your Friends in the Picture.
Wherever you go, you see people trying to take pictures of themselves, alone or in groups of friends or family, by holding their camera at arms length, hoping for the best, and often having to re-shoot. Now, Argraph Corporation, the international supplier of photographic / imaging products, is offering two solutions that get you and your friends in the picture.
Mirror, Mirror on the Camera™ is a cool self-adhesive self-portrait mirror you stick on your camera or cell phone, so you can see yourself and your friends before snapping a picture. This eliminates the “chopped heads” and “missing person” shots frequently snapped when shooting “blind”. With Mirror, Mirror on the Camera™, you can say goodbye to messed up shots and to the time-consuming hassle of shoot-and-delete retakes.
Every hour, every minute, across the country and around the globe, millions of people are snapping self-portraits and group shots to post on Facebook and other sites. Teens, students, travelers, grandparents, conference-goers, honeymooners and people at every kind of gathering need Mirror, Mirror on the Camera™ to get in the picture.
The Bottle-Top Pod turns virtually any water bottle, soft drink bottle, even beer bottle into an instant “tripod”. Simply screw the adapter into the tripod thread of your camera, attach the Bottle-Top Pod to the top of your bottle and start including yourself in the picture. The built-in ball head allows you to angle your camera to make the shot just right.
The Samigon Bottle-Top Pod is a great way to get photos of the whole family or group – with you in it! It works with most compact point and shoot cameras with a tripod thread, so there is no need to carry those cumbersome tripods around with you everywhere you go.
The Samigon Bottle-Top Podä easily fits in a pocket and weighs only 1oz., making it the perfect thing for those spur of the moment shots when you don’t have a tripod handy.
The Bottle-Top Pod attracts crowds and conversation wherever you use it.
