DJI Spark Announced - A New Small Option has just announced the Spark.  The DJI Spark takes the idea of a seriously portable drone, first introduced with the Mavic Pro last year, and makes it even smaller.Spark is smaller and lighter than the Mavic Pro, but also supports all of the Mavic Pro’s Intelligent Flight Modes and introduces new features like QuickShot and advanced gesture controls like PalmControl.   Described in the launch keynote as easy, intuitive and fun. This really reminds me of the Lily, the failed kickstarter drone that was focused on easy selfie photos and videos.  One feature borrowed from recent innovations in smartphone cameras - fake depth of field with shallow focus mode- intentional background blur.While it can produce professional results the lack of 4k, 16 minute flight time and probable issues in wind make this less ideal for serious aerial photo or video needs. Those that desire a more versatile drone need to consider the Mavic Pro or a higher model.$499 will get you the drone and one battery. You can charge the drone via Micro USB(a first for DJI).   Control with hand gestures or the DJI app on your smartphone - range is limited to approximately 100 meters.$699 for the Fly more combo which includes - extra props, prop guards, 1 extra battery (2 total), a remote and a carry case. The remote extends the range to 1.24 miles and while the remote is similar to the DJI Mavic it is much simpler without the LCD Screen.Shipping June 21st - Preorder from Amazon or B&H Photo (No sales tax outside NY)[vc_row][vc_column width="1/4"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]Mavic Pro[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]Phantom 4[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]DJI Spark[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/4"]Size[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]335mm (Extended) 83mm x 83mm x 198mm (Folded)[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]350mm[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]143×143×55 mm[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/4"]Weight[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]1.64 lbs (743g)[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]3.04 lbs (1380g)[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"].66lbs (300 g)[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/4"]Operating Temp[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]32° to 104° F ( 0° to 40° C )[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"] 32° to 104°F (0° to 40°C)[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]32° to 104° F (0° to 40° C)[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/4"]Max Ascent /Descent Speed[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]16.4 ft/s | 9.8 ft/s[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]19.7 ft/s | 13.1 ft/s[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"] 9.8 ft/s (3 m/s) | 9.8 ft/s (3 m/s)[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/4"]Max Flight Time[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]27 Minutes[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]28 Minutes[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]16 Minutes[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/4"]Max Flight Distance[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]8 mi (13 km)[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]-[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]-[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/4"]Max Tilt Angle[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]-[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]S-mode: 42°A-mode: 35°P-mode: 15°[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]-[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/4"]Max Angular Speed[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]-[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]S-mode: 200°/sA-mode: 150°/s[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]-[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/4"]Max Wind Speed Resistance[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]-[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]10 m/s[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]-[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/4"]Sensor[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]1/2.3” (CMOS), Effective pixels:12.35 MP[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]1/2.3” CMOS, Effective pixels:12.4 MP[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]1/2.3" CMOSEffective pixels: 12 MP[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/4"]Lens[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]FOV 78.8° 28 mm (35 mm format equivalent) f/2.2Distortion < 1.5% Focus from 0.5 m to ∞[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]FOV 94° 20 mm (35 mm format equivalent) f/2.8 focus at ∞[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]FOV 81.9° 25 mm (35 mm format equivalent) f/2.6(shooting range: 2 m to ∞)[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/4"]Gimbal[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]3-Axis[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]3-Axis[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]2-Axis[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/4"]ISO Range[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]100-3200 (video)100-1600 (photo)[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]100-3200 (video)100-1600 (photo)[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]Video: 100-3200Photo: 100-1600[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/4"]Shutter Speed[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]8s -1/8000s[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/4"]8 -
