    This looks really good so I ordered one yesterday and look forward to trying it out when it arrives in 2-3 weeks.

    For what I'll use it for it suits me better than a GoPro and will be ideal when I don't want to carry a big gimbal for my camera but want to capture some 4K footage. Also ideal for vlogging.

    It looks amazing, I was going to get a gimbal for my A7 for some holiday videos but gave up on the idea due to size. This literally solves all the problem in 1.

    This does look good. I have the 7 Black with a ISteady Pro gimbal, and the Pocket is miles smaller than this setup.

    I'll wait for videos from it but I'll probably invest in one in the near future.

    When mine arrives I'll post some sample footage or put an unedited file on my website for download so you can see what it's like.

    Trouble with the Osmo or any other handheld gimbal has always been the z-axis, and this doesn't seem to address that still.

    You can get z-axis stabiliser arms for handheld gimbals (although it's just more to carry) and there may be one released for this later but for what this intended for I think it's ideal.

    DJI's rate of product development is fantastic. I can't wait for them to face up to GoPro directly and come out with something game-changing.

    Saw this come up in my emails so had a look and pre ordered one as I’ve been after a gimbal. Was originally looking at some of the indiegogo gimbals that are going to be released but none of them really caught my eye.

    But this one from DJI is small and compact. Might get the attachment for it for my iPhone at some point in the future.

    This, and also a comparison with CSCs. I was thinking of getting a Feiyu Tech G6 Plus as it has attachments for GoPro, phone and CSCs, but depending on how this holds up, I might be swayed given how small it is!

    It all looks great apart from the field of view, just too narrow?

    Not yet, meant to be shipping this week according to the email I got.

    Seems like dji have pushed a firmware update already for it. Meant to fix a few issues namely audio and auto focus.

    Looking forward to getting mine and having a play. Will be great for taking on holidays with the missus, rather than having to pull my iPhone out all the tome I can have this and it seems quite tiny.

    There's new videos on YouTube showing the Pocket, and they look really good.

    And they can look even better with a couple of updates. I'm certain to get a Pocket in the new year.

    Well I thought I would be getting mine this week but sadly nope. The place I ordered from haven’t received any stock plus I ordered the expansion pack for £99 as well so that will probably hold my order up for a bit longer.

    I’ll give it another week or so then decide whether to go somewhere else and get it. But I have a feeling stock is going to be pretty tight now that Xmas is coming up.

    Having said that, my mate got one yesterday...pre ordered so had a little play with his and I can’t get over the size of it. It’s such a small device and packs alot of features. So far from my brief testing it’s pretty cool, just kinda wished they had somehow put the wireless module into the device rather than having it as a separate piece. But I suppose it would have made it bigger than it is at the moment.

    Just hoping I get mine before Xmas.

    I've not opened it yet, I'm busy with work this week so may keep it for Christmas lol

    I'm not sure what I was expecting but the box is so small, can't wait to give it a go.

    Well I’ve finally had an update from the place I ordered from. They will have mine in a few days but due to me ordering the expansion pack, it will delay my order a little while longer.

    So will call them and ask them to cancel the expansion pack, I can get that at a later date.

    Hopefully I’ll get mine end of this week or before Xmas at the very least.
