Looking to elevate your Instagram game? DJI’s new Spark is its smallest camera drone, weighing just 10.6 ounces, or less than a can of soda.
Don’t let its small size fool you: Spark is pretty special. It can lift off from the palm of your hand and be controlled via hand gestures alone.
“Even if you’ve never flown a drone before, flying Spark is easy because the only remote controller you’ll need is your hand,” DJI wrote in a news release. When it takes off from your hand, it automatically enters Gesture mode, so you can send it flying, take a selfie, or call it back to your palm with simple hand movements. It can also be operated via a remote controller or mobile device.
Spark’s camera captures 12-megapixel photos and 1080p video. Besides Gesture mode, the aircraft offers a QuickShot mode with four choices: Rocket, which sends Spark straight up in the air with the camera pointed down; Dronie, to make it fly up and away from you; Circle, to make it rotate around you; and Helix; which sends it spiraling away as it flies upward. Each QuickShot will create a 10-second video.
There’s also a Pano mode for horizontal or vertical panoramic shots and ShallowFocus mode, which keeps the subject of your photo sharp while softening the rest.
