    I have a droid maxx and tries two friends selfie sticks that use the headset connection no Bluetooth. I read you have to set take picture if volume buttons pressed to do it that way but can't find an option what's a good selfie stick and instructions for droid maxx

    I can't recommend any selfie sticks since I don't take them. But my Droid Maxx takes pictures using either volume button by default. I have never seen any setting for this, I thought that was just part of the camera. Tours should take pics using the volume buttons if you have the stock camera app.

    Can you take a normal picture using the volume buttons?

    You need an app that allows capturing the shutter from a bt button press. The stock camera app does not. I've never used a selfie stick myself, but it looks like this app would do the trick.

    Yes, it does, but only the physical buttons. If you use a selfie stick that connects by BT and emulates a volume press, it won't take a photo with the stock camera.

    I just realized something. The OP said they are using a stick that connects to the headphone jack, and did ask if a BT selfie stick would work. I think it might work through BT. Maybe the headphone jack cannot emulate the physical button press, but it should work with a BT stick. I can take pictures with my watch and that is a BT connection to my phone. Something to consider.

    Drawback of Bluetooth is that it's another thing to charge :( wanted the version that was always on since you know it will never be charged when u wanna take a selfie ...

    I think you may need an a special photo app that detects volume up down presses or whatever sugnal comes from the head phone jack still trying to figure out whats needed

    See my post #5 above....

    Again, I don't have a selfie stick, never will, so I don't know for sure, but that app looks like it should work.
