Feiyutech Feiyu Pocket 4K action camera gimbal can record video in 4K resolution with a frame rate of 60 fps. It cost $249 only and can be purchased through the online store.

Unlike the DJI Osmo Pocket, the Feiyu Tech Pocket 4K camera has a larger screen diagonal of 1.3 inches and a camera sensor with a resolution of 8.5 megapixels. This sensor should provide the camera pixel-by-pixel image reading when shooting videos in 4K UHD format, which in turn should, in theory, have a positive effect on the sharpness of the picture and comes with the 1/2.5-inch CMOS sensor.

In addition, the new camera stabilizer features an ultra-wide-angle lens (120° viewing angle) with an aperture of F/2.8, which in turn is 1 stop darker than the DJI Osmo Pocket. At the same time, the working ISO range of this video stabilizer is similar to the DJI camera, namely – 100-3200. FeiyuTech Pocket 4K electronic shutter speed is 1/8000 second.
