My Opinions 


The Fimi Palm 2 is a small camera that has a  mechanical gimbal and this will help to make your videos more stable.

 

the Build quality of the Fimi Palm 2 is good, it has a rubber grip on both sides, it feels good in the hand,
and on the main body we have a battery that will run for a maximum of 5 hours.


If you are shooting at 4K expect that to be somewhere around 2 and a half hours or maybe 3 hours.

At the bottom we have a quarter inch thread-hole for tripods and  a USB-C port to charge it and to connect it to your PC to transfer the files.


Unfortunately, The Fimi Palm 2 will not work as a webcam.


On the main body we have a big joystick that can be set to control the gimbal or the zoom. I like to control the gimbal with this joystick.


The movement is really smooth and below the joystick we have the power button, which is also the record button and this button can also be used to recenter the camera and to go into selfie mode, but while recording a video you will hear the "clicks".


Slow motion can also be done by shooting at 2.7K at 60 frames per second and then slowing it down on post-edition. The reason to do this on 2.7K and not 4K is because the Fimi Palm 2 doesn't support 4K at 60fps.


Regular videos will support 4K up to 30fps, 2.7K up to 60fps and 1080p up to 90fps.


If you are someone who is looking for a camera to shoot 4K videos at 60fps or you are looking for high quality videos , you might go to their Fimi Palm 3 (Camera sensor is still small and will have its limitations), with a bigger camera sensor and more improvements, but I like to said, for this price range it's going to be a good, portable, STABILIZED video camera!
