FeiyuTech VLOG Pocket

Rexcel reviews her second gimbal, the tiny but amazing FeiyuTech VLOG Pocket made for phones.

Yesterday, we received delivery of our second gimbal. We had just received the G6Max a couple of days before when we decided to buy another one, but this time one designed to work exclusively with smartphones.

Since we are pleased with our first FeiyuTech gimbal, the excellent G6Max, we thought we’d stick with them and purchase their tiny but amazing VLOG Pocket too.

Purchase

As usual, we scoured the Internet for the best deals. When we placed our order for the VLOGPocket, it took the online store just 2 days to deliver the item. Ordered: Feb 13, Delivered: Feb 15.

All the malls nearby us do not stock or sell camera accessories like gimbals so we no longer bother to even look anymore.

Price

The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the VLOGPocket in Metro Manila, Philippines is ₱3,990 when it was launched here back in August, 2019.

We paid ₱2,950 for the item, including delivery charges. A discount of slightly over 27%.

🥇 It is light! It weighs in at only 272 grams, according to the spec sheet.

🥈 The second thing we already like about the VLOGPocket, is that it does not require balancing or leveling. Just unfold, unlock (all) the locks, slide a phone in, switch the gimbal on, and BAM!, it’s ready to shoot!

VLOGPocket with Google Pixel phone

If you have a phone with a good camera, like a Google Pixel phone, for example, this is a very good accessory to have, to up your vlogging game!

With a battery that can last up to 8 hours, I think this is a good and inexpensive investment if you are attempting to improve the overall quality of your video production – especially when you plan to use your smartphone as an auxiliary camera.

🥉 The third thing that impressed us is that the learning curve to handle the VLOGPocket is pretty low and you can master the gimbal and start producing much better quality videos with your phone all within a couple of hours of opening the box for the very first time.

What we DIDN’T like about the VLOGPocket

Is there anything we didn’t like about the VLOGPocket? No, we cannot say that we have found anything yet… But it is still early days. So I’ll reserve this space for anything we might find in the future.

Conclusion

👍 2 thumbs up! For the price, it can’t be beat! It will really make a difference to all the videos you take on your phone.
