The world of the best all-in-one gimbal cameras is a competitive one, and now there are some new head-turners on the block. Chinese firm FeiyuTech has announced the FeiyuPocket 2S and FeiyuPocket 2, two new portable gimbal cameras for videographers with some attention-grabbing features.

The FeiyuPocket2S is the showboat of the two, as it features a magnetically detachable head and handle, allowing users to experiment with a host of different shooting angles. You can still use the controls on the handle to operate the camera, even when it’s physically detached from the head. The fact that it’s magnetic also makes it wearable and mountable, opening up new possibilities for action camera-style POV shooting - making it a useful helmet camera option.
