The DJI Osmo Pocket (opens in new tab) is probably the most innovative camera to have been launched in the last couple of years. This miniature device combines a miniature action cam with a built-in gimbal stabilizer – making it a great choice for vloggers. But now this highly-successful device has a rival in the shape of the similar-looking and similarly-specced Feiyu Pocket.

The Feiyu Pocket can record  4K resolution video at up to 60 fps at 120 Mb/s - and also offers 1080p shooting for 120 fps slow-motion footage. If you need super slo-mo there is a 720p option that recorders at 240 fps. Still images can be shot with a  and still images with an 8.2 MP resolution.  Images and video are stored on a microSD card (opens in new tab).

The rechargeable battery claims 3.5 hours maximum runtime, and is topped up suing the built-in USB Type-C port. Recharging takes approximately 80 minutes. It measures 4.9 x 1.6 x 1.2in / 124.5 x 40.5 x 30mm, and weighs in at 4.06oz / 115g.

The Feiyu Pocket is scheduled to cost $249 when it goes on sale later this year.
