DJI Spark can now capture spherical panoramic images

DJI has announced another update to its entry-level drone, the Spark, which now allows users to create ‘tiny planet’ spherical panoramic images.

The new spherical panorama mode effectively allows users to create panoramic images with a fisheye lens effect, which you can then share directly to social media.

DJI says the tiny planet feature for Spark will be available in a forthcoming DJI Go 4 mobile app and Spark firmware update.

The new addition to Spark’s feature set follows a slew of new features and enhancements of existing technology from a critical Spark firmware update. Among these additions are:

  • A new gesture to start and stop video recording
  • Enhanced QuickShot video features for more cinematic control
  • A 180-degree photo shooting mode and improved photo image resolution
  • Full integration with the DJI Goggles
  • Optimisation of the PalmLaunch function for better stability after takeoff
  • Improved control accuracy under the QuickShot Dronie mode

Spark is the first consumer drone that users can control with hand gestures, and boasts a number of other features aimed at simplifying drone use for those who have never flown an unmanned aircraft.
