DJI, which is the well-known brand for producing amazing quality Drones, and Gimbal, has now come up with a Pocket-sized 3 Axis Gimbal, the DJI Osmo Pocket.

Sadly there is no option to add an external microphone which is a crucial thing for vloggers.
Popular YouTuber Casey Neistat has also compared this new pocket-sized Gimbal with GoPro Hero 7 which is also an amazing built product with image stabilization.
However, the image stabilization on DJI Osmo Pocket is much better since it is hardware based optical image stabilization whereas the GoPro Hero 7 has got electronic image stabilization.
