You know Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2019 is over, but you can still buy a good gift for you or your friend. I traveled a lot for the last year, and I thought about buying action camera.
However, budget action cameras have bad stabilization. You also need to buy gimbal stabilizer. It was a real problem for me, because I do not want to bring with me a large gimbal, action camera and accessories for it.
Today I found a new deal on GearBest. The pre-sale of FIMI Palm has started. I am very interesting in this device, and most likely, I will buy it.
Let me tell you why FIMI Palm is a must-have gadget for your adventures in 2020.
1. Compact size and lightweight
As I already said, I don’t want to bring with me a large gimbal and action camera in my trips. FIMI Palm is very compact and lightweight. The dimensions are only 30.5 by 22.7 by 127 mm. The weight is 120 grams. It will not take much space in your suitcase.
2. Gimbal stabilizer
FIMI Palm is not only action camera, but also gimbal. It uses 3-axis gimbal mechanism for smooth and clear video. It is very important for video recording.
3. Touch screen
FIMI Palm has 1.22-inch touch screen. It has a good brightness of 600 nits, so you can see the image on the screen even in sunny day.
As for the control, there is 5-way joystick allows to control the gimbal and camera. On the back, there is 1/4 inch standard thread, so you can use tripod or other accessories.
You can also use the mobile app to control the camera.

Perhaps, the main feature of FIMI Palm is ultra-wide angle mode. It has 128 degrees field of view. GearBest has published the video on their YouTube channel with comparison of wide-angle mode on DJI Osmo Pocket and FIMI Palm. You can watch the video below. As you can see, the difference is significant.
FIMI Palm has many shooting modes, such as Panorama, Time-Lapse, Motion Lapse, Hyper Lapse, 8x slow motion and 3x zoom.
