Mechanical Gimbal Stabilization - Shake-Free Shots
Spark's 2-axis mechanical gimbal and UltraSmooth technology dramatically reduce shake and rolling shutter effect, keeping shots stable and detailed.
Powerful Lens - Capture the World
All Spark images are consistently sharp and vivid with very little colour aberration and distortion. Spark's camera has an f/2.6 wide-angle lens with a 25 mm equivalent focal length. Five elements are arranged into a single group that fit into a compressed frame.
1/2.3" Sensor - Record More Details
Small and compact, Spark's camera features a 1/2.3 inch CMOS sensor, allowing you to shoot stabilized video at 1080p and stills at 12 MP. Larger pixels mean Spark is acutely sensitive to light and records colours precisely.
Multiple Shooting Modes - Versatile Photography
Spark adopts all previous DJI drone shooting modes while adding two new modes: Pano and ShallowFocus.
- Pano - Spark shoots horizontal or vertical panoramas by automatically adjusting its gimbal and heading.
- ShallowFocus - 3D vision technology helps capture photos with a shallow depth of field.
FlightAutonomy - Enhanced Awareness
Spark's FlightAutonomy system includes the main camera, vision positioning system (VPS), 3D sensing system, dual-band GPS, high-precision inertial measurement unit, and 24 powerful computing cores. This allows Spark to hover accurately anywhere with VPS assistance at up to 98 ft (30 m), sense obstacles from up to 16 ft (5 m) away, and land safely.
Return to Home - Worry-Free Flight
Like all recent DJI drones, Spark can return to its home point automatically with sufficient GPS signal. If the battery gets too low, connection is lost, or you hit the Return to Home (RTH) button, Spark flies back to the preset home point while sensing obstacles in its path. Spark’s downward-facing camera captures images of the area surrounding the home point and references these images during RTH for a safe landing.
Flight Protection - Fly Smarter
DJI’s GEO system lets you know where drone flights may raise safety or security concerns, such as near airports or stadiums. This provides the information needed to fly Spark safely and responsibly.
Intelligent Flight Battery - Power and Protection
Spark uses a high energy density LiPo battery for optimal performance. 12 intelligent protection functions help deliver safe flight. Additionally, Spark’s battery estimates remaining flight time, letting you know when to land in real time.
