At first, look, priced for only $165.99, the P6A 4K Pocket Gimbal looks like an affordable alternative for the FiMI Palm. It features a similar size and design. Both pocket gimbals are capable to record 4K videos with up to 30 frames per second. While the FiMI Palm has up to 100 Mbps, the P6A only 60 Mbps. Based on my experience, usually means better image quality.
Despite the high capacity battery (1600mAh), the P6A has only 140 minutes of working time. The bigger battery adds some extra weight, making the P6A the heaviest pocket gimbal right now.
In addition to the live-view touchscreen, you have only two buttons, “power” on the left and “shutter” on the back of the KEELEAD P6A gimbal. Thanks to the built-in connectivity you can easily control the gimbal via your phone as well.
The P6A pocket gimbal features 4 working modes: Follow, FPV (first-person view), Half Follow, and Tilt Locked.
