    Bad news. I just called the store. No Stock. Stocks will be coming in 4-5 weeks. Might as well just buy from DJI's online store. Apple will be selling it for SGD199. You can just buy it at the DJI store for USD 129, that's roughly SGD170++ only.

    That's the DJI Singapore online store. USD 129 is inclusive of shipping and tax that is if you have a Singapore address.

    Here's my Unboxing and Field Test video of the Zhiyun Smooth Q. This is the best value gimbal available today.

    Give me a week to try both out. Important to note though that the Smooth Q is SGD30 cheaper.

    Here's a sample motion timelapse [email protected] using my iPhone X and the DJI Osmo Mobile 2. Taken yesterday at Marina Coastal, Singapore, 6:00 pm.

    It’s already available at the DJI Retail Store along Panay Avenue, Quezon City.
