Feiyu Pocket vs Osmo Pocket vs FiMI Palm: Best handheld gimbals

Feiyu Pocket vs DJI Osmo Pocket vs FiMI Palm

Shortly after we reviewed DJI’s Osmo Pocket handheld gimbal, many camera and gimbal manufacturers started to reveal their own pocket size stabilised 4K camera. Firstly it was Xiaomi with their FIMI Palm, then Snoppa with Vmate and lastly Feiyu-Tech with Feiyu Pocket.

Priced for only $249, the just rumored Feiyu Pocket could be a good alternative for the expensive Osmo Pocket. In addition to the much friendly price tag, it features higher bit rate at 4K@60fps recording, larger LCD display and built-WiFi connectivity. Furthermore, Feiyu Pocket has wider gimbal range (movement freedom) than its DJI contender. Feiyu-Tech’s handheld gimbal provides 360° POV all-follow mode and two basic follow modes, all at a max follow speed of 180°/s.

Bottom line

I hope I managed to give you a bit of an overview on what’s similar and what’s different between these 3 handheld 4K gimbals. Unfortunately, for the moment I had the chance to review only the Osmo Pocket, but the FIMI Palm is already on its way to me and I also contacted Feiyu-Tech regarding the possibility to test and evaluate their Feiyu Pocket gimbal.

    • there is no internal memory, you will need and micro SD card to capture your footage. Due to the high bit rate and 4K@60ps resolution you will need a high speed one (class 10 U3)

  1. Do you know when the Feiyu Pocket will be truly available for orders? i don’t want to pay for a product now, and received it for Christmas…

  2. ordered mine, firstly I wanted a osmo pocket, but picked a Feiyu. It offers about same for less. They on the ginbal market for a while and their stabilizers proved over the time. I will use it mainly for travelling and vlogging

  3. Feiyu Pocket Gimbal seems to be the best option. It is just a bit more expensive that the FIMI Palm but it has 4K@60FPS!!!!!
