Xiaomi is about to release their second generation of FiMI Palm gimbal. Apparently, the FIMI PALM 2 is more just a facelift than a real upgrade compared to its predecessor. Also, featuring only 4K@30fps recording, can't be counted as DJI Pocket 2 alternative. The Palm 2's grip has been completely redesigned compared to its predecessor. If you put them side-by-side...

FIMI PALM 4K Handheld Gimbal Camera
After DJI has announced their OSMO Pocket, it was only a matter of time for other manufacturers to come up with similar ultra-compact handheld stabilized cameras. The FIMI PALM is Xiaomi’s response to DJI’s Osmo Pocket. At first sight, there is not much design difference between these two handheld 4K gimbal cameras. Also, both have similar size and weight...

We are proud being between the first drone blogs selected to make an in-depth review of the FiMI A3 quadcopter. My plan is to record...
