DJI Spark with new video and photo features

DJI, the world’s leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, has released new features for its Spark camera drone that make it easier to capture and share life’s special moments on the go. Made possible through a recent firmware update, the new features deliver a powerful combination of video and photo improvements.


Through its innovative 3D Sensing System, Spark has groundbreaking features like Gesture Mode and PalmControl. Users can control Spark with hand movements, giving it commands to follow them, take aerial selfies, send the drone away, and beckon it to come back. With the addition of the new Record gesture, users can now start and stop video recording with a simple arm movement, giving them the freedom and flexibility to capture beautiful, smooth videos whenever the right moment strikes using Spark’s image stabilized 1080p HD camera. See the attached image for more information on performing the new Record gesture.

Spark’s QuickShot Intelligent Flight Modes that make creating professional videos fun and easy have also been enhanced. Using QuickShot, Spark automatically flies along a preset flight path while recording a short video and tracking a subject along the way. Users can now control which circular direction the drone flies during Circle and Helix modes to give them more cinematic control when filming. Other QuickShot modes have also been improved by increasing the height gained during Dronie mode and smoothing out the camera’s pitch in Rocket mode.

Spark also adds new photo shooting features that maximize the camera’s capabilities. In addition to the existing Vertical and Horizontal Pano modes, a new 180 mode stitches 21 individual photos together to capture breathtaking 180-degree panoramic images. The photo resolution when shooting in ActiveTrack and Gesture Modes has also been improved to capture images at 12-megapixel resolution of 3968×2976 pixels.

The firmware update has also made improvements on the overall performance of Spark including better responsiveness to input from the remote controller, enhanced connectivity between the aircraft and remote controller, as well as flight logging for the Intelligent Battery system.
