Xiaomi FIMI PALM 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal 4K Camera US$103.50 (~A$134.89) Delivered @ Banggood

880
BGe16e2c

Lowest price I've ever seen online for this excellent Handheld Gimbal 4K camera. For around ~$134 AU with shipping you really can't go wrong considering the price of other similar cameras.

This video review review compares it to the DJI Osmo Pocket in both features and video quality. In summary the main differences besides price is that the FIMI Palm has a joystick for controlling the camera, inbuilt Wifi/Bluetooth for accessing footage on your mobile device, a wider angle of view and better battery life. The DJI Pocket has a better inbuilt mic and supports video up to [email protected], while the FIMI only supports video up to [email protected]

As for the quality of the video I think the colours in the FIMI is better than the DJI, however that comes to personal preference so I recommand checking out the review to see for yourself.

3 Axis motorised mobile stabalisation
Want super-smooth looking stories for social media? The Fimi Palm might be just what you need. Walk without worrying about camera shakes that’ll make your followers feel seasick. Simply power on the gimbal and enjoy steady stabilised footage that take your videos to the next level.

Compact and portable design
FIMI features a weight as light as 120g in a compact size of 30.5 x 22.7 x 127mm, which renders the Palm highly portable and lets you film on the go.

Super smooth videos and a 128 degree ultra wide angle lens
The high-precision sensors, with a fully closed-loop servo system and the third-generation LOS stabilization algorithm, are upgraded to eliminate picture jitters in real-time and dynamic shooting. And the exclusive 128° ultra wide-angle lens, which perfectly fits the best angle of human vision, captures more memorable moments while portraying a bigger world for you.

Wireless connection
FIMI PALM can be connected to your smartphone via the built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. During shooting, remote control and transmission allow for aasy preview and smarter gimbal camera control. You can also download relevant materials wirelessly to your phone and edit footage on the APP.

240 minute battery life.
The PALM adopts professional Hisilicon SOC and a smart lithum battery that has superior power management capability, offering a 240-min working time. With a USB-C port, it fulfills your daily filming needs and delivers stunning results.

Built in microphone
Except the dual-microphone system, FIMI PALM combo kit features a 3.5mm port on the base to connect with external MIC, which gives you more possibilities for external audio recording.

Smart tracking function
Smart tracking function makes the FIMI PALM automatically recognise face, and the gimbal can capture the target quickly and precisely.

      I checked for you and she has. Given she's reviewed it right at release the issues she's experienced have long been fixed in firmware updates.

      •  

        I already have a gimbal and a gopro 7 black but now I'm compelled to grab one of these too….

        •  

          I sold my original DJI a while ago and might jump on this one. Was waiting for the FIMI Palm 2 or similar to go down but this price is excellent value.

      this is a KNOWN brand and the PALM is better than POCKET.

  •  

    Goodness, that price has fallen quickly.

  •  

    Looks decent. I wonder how it compares to the DJI Pocket 2 [5x this price, I know]

    The FIMI is much warmer and better saturated than the DJI in the linked comparison vid. I really don't need one of these. Or do I? I probably do.

    • +1 vote

      Pocket 2 can do 4k60, bigger sensor so low light performance is slightly better. Also has active tracking. Not sure if fimi has this now with firmware updates. Seems to be more accessories available ND filters, etc. But for $134. This is a bargain.

      • +1 vote

        Doesn't sound like it's worth 5x the price. The FIMI looks perfect as a starter because let's be honest, it'll probably end up in a draw somewhere after a few months.

        •  

          I think that's fair. I do love my pocket 2. It has a wider angle then the pocket 1, so more similar to the fimi.

          The great thing is the ability to take stabilised footage with such a small camera and minimal setup time. Phone gimbals or camera gimbals need to be set up each time. U just power this on and away you go.

          •  

            @julz15: I film a lot of surfing videos on my phone and the horizon is a constant hassle to keep level. Would the FIMI solve that issue?

            •  

              @DisabledUser391884: It's not waterproof so I'd say no. Better off with a Gopro or a insta360 go 2

              •  

                @julz15: I film from the headland and beach, not in the water.

    •  

      you should really compare PALM 1 to Pocket 1. They have also released Palm 2.

      •  

        There's a vid down below comparing them. Palm 1 wins.

      •  

        The palm2 is really not amazing.

        Everyone hoped for a bigger sensor; its really all it needed; but no luck.

    I had both this Fimi Palm and Osmo Pocket 1. It is a very good product, great video quality and very close to Osmo Pocket. the Fimi wider angle is more enjoyable and the wi-fi connection is a plus. On the negatives the menu il clunky, the app a bit less refined, and — BIG BIG missing for me - there is no tracking for objects, only faces, which limits the cinematic. Another downside is the max video is 4k30fps ( a part a 1080p 4x and 8x slow motion with lower quality).
    For $134 it is a HUGE bargain !

    4k at 25fps kinda sucks, dont get me wrong for the price this is great deal but my iphone 11 does 4k 60fps..

    •  

      Exactly at this price. An iPhone 11 is not at this price. The Fimi Palm 2 that now sells for around the same price as this originally sold does it.

        Galaxy S10 5G has more OIS & other features than iPhone 11.
        Both are still toys compared to normal large optical lenses.

        • +1 vote

          Are we not better investing in a phone gimbal then so when we inevitably upgrade we can get the benefits of the new phone with the gimbal?

    •  

      For social media, as the toy lenses of mobiles are intended (inc. iPhones), 25fps is not that bad.
      For more professional viewing (I will not accept iPhone or FIMI or DJI) you are better with joystick & other missing controls in all mentioned devices.
      Nothing compares to larger optical lens & smooth zoom in/out (eg. 10x) & most cost less than iPhones.

      I agree, all including iPhones, suck for prosumer+ video.

        I cannot disagree more with your comment on gear…..

        It sis all about the shooter. Yes proper gear gives the shooter an edge compare to someone who is only using a GoPro / Mobile. Only if the shooter know what to do. On the other hand, a shooter that has good knowledge and technique can still produce good material with a phone.

        BTW I am the shooter that produce garbage no matter what you give me and my wife is the one who make commercial material on her S10 with gimbal and Moment lens.

  •  

    shame it's 25 fps, as for motion capture - which is what you'd use this for 30fps or more is a must to reduce that stutter feel. otherwise bargain.
    Smart phone gimbal might actually be better

    My partner's been going on about how she wants a gimbal so I'm thinking of getting this for her. I cant find any warranty information on the website. Will this be covered under warranty here in AU?

    •  

      I've had to make one attempt at a warranty claim with Bangood before, and it was a nightmare.

      •  

        phew. pretty glad I didn't pull the trigger. I'd rather spend a bit more and have warranty.

    I'm going to use this if I buy it, right? RIGHT???

    Can I connect this to a pc and use it as a webcam?

    So Newb question(s)

    Ive been looking to buy a gimbal to live stream lawn bowls games. Every other setup that Ive seen has a gimbal that you attach your phone/ipad too.

    It appears that this doesnt need the phone attached?
    How would you livestream with this? Would you just attach it via bluetooth/wifi hotspot to the phone? Generally livestreams are to Facebook.
    Is this fit for purpose? A Bowls green is roughly 40m long. You generally video from the end where the bowl is travelling too.

    Cheers for any advice & not taking the piss (too much)

    Mine finally arrived today. Such a good camera. Be sure to download the FIMI PLAY app for more advanced settings like the camera movement speed. The default speed is soooooo slow.
