Pretty decent deal for a pocket size rig, don't have to whip out your Zhiyun/Osmo gimbal and put your phone on it. Smaller form factor than a gopro + stick anyways.

it's a decent price compared to other places but I really think these are a waste of money if you have a decent phone camera.

There is absolutely no comparison to what a phone camera can do. I don’t own one of these (yet) but they are very intriguing.

What do you mean there is no comparison? DJI used to mainly advertise this has a cellphone attachment because you can attach it to your phone for a bigger screen and for all the functions.

This isn’t a go pro or a regular DJI osmo. This isn’t made for that.

Apples and oranges. As well as other's go pro comments.
This is a gimble with a camera, not a selfie stick. You can get a dji gimble for a smarphone too and get same results, but there is obviously a chance of phone damage during more extreme action shots.

How is it not made for that? Snowboarding would be a perfect example of usage for the osmo.

This is a osmo pocket, not an osmo.

Excellent product at an excellent price. Bought it for $400 last summer from Costco.

This is much better than a cellphone. And far more convenient that having a cell phone on an Osmo mobile.

I carry my Osmo pocket, along with my drone and DSLR on every trip. I take casual photos with my pixel phone and my hobby photo/videos with the above three.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

Not when you smoke the gimbal or get water in it.
You would need the case or it would be risky.

Breaking it is one thing, but this thing should be water resistant, no?
