DJI Mavic Pro vs DJI Spark
The main feature separating the two is the 3-axis all-mechanical gimbal that can deliver pictures and videos with sharpness and clarity at high speeds. The main camera is a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor with equivalent 28mm f/2.8 aperture lens for 12-megapixel stills. It has the ability to playback video at 4K with 30 fps and a 100 MBPS bitrate or commonly understood as 1080p resolution.
The DJI Mavic has a sophisticated gesture control feature that will seamlessly move through the landscape. Visual will look surreal and otherworldly, as in our daily life such perspective is impossible to see with the naked eye.
The gesture keys are intuitive and ergonomically designed to ensure the user feels comfortable and at ease driving the quadcopter in any space. These gesture keys will enable users to use a simple 'v' sign with your their hand to trigger the capture action and making the director's hands coming together to make a viewfinder or square will trigger the start recording button. The LED lights indicate various actions when they blink it is indicating that the drone has received the command.
Resolution and Memory
The DJI Mavic Pro will give users 120 fps when using the slow-motion feature. An 8GB internal storage can give users uninterrupted shooting capabilities without worrying about carrying an additional memory card. For high-quality resolution, a large memory card will be needed, especially when shooting at 4K 30 fps video even two minutes of capturing will take 1.5 GB of space.
'Boomerang' video mode will capture interesting shots that are reversed for added effect. The 'Asteroid' mode will take a spherical image from a birds-eye view then zooms and twists onto the ground level creating an anti-gravity effect.
The panorama feature is not limited to horizontal but can also be adjusted to capture vertically. There are 180 degrees angles or a full sphere creating dynamic and interesting visuals covering a large expanse of space. The DJI Mavic Pro will take a series of continuous photographs and automatically stitches them together to create one larger image.
Some of the standard modes similar to DSLR cameras are the HDR settings or AEB which takes multiple varied exposure shots to be processed later.
There is a sports mode for fast-moving scenes that can achieve a max speed of 42mph. Users will be able to capture football matches, marathons and other sports with ease.
The 'Timed Shot' feature is for timelapse videos, users can shoot precisely how many photographs and what interval speeds they would like to set their timelapse. The subject tracking can follow 2 subjects walking in the same direction creating a frame and composition of people running together or cycling during the video.
Obstacle Detection Sensor
It has sensitive cameras and sensors that can detect, navigate and avoid obstacles on all sides of the drone. The front, back and bottom surfaces areas are protected but for sideways flying users will manually guide the drone to avoid collisions with objects.
Fast speeds and action can result in a serious collision with subject interference. Pilots must be careful flying the drone around people as hitting someone can easily happen at fast-moving speeds.
Air resistance and other weather conditions can affect the overall flight time of the drone but it can manage 21 minutes at a fixed 15.5mph depending on the power supply.
The range to keep in mind if you are on a tablet or smartphone is approximately 50 meters height and 80 meters distance but with the remote attached this goes up to 4km in line of sight which is a huge difference.
A choppy signal may be the result of interference with any other signals close by or electromagnetic fields. It is recommended that users ensure the scene they are capturing has little third part signal interference.
Permits & Laws
There are laws and permits sanctioned by the local government that allows drone photography and videography in certain areas. It is important to contact the local authorities to make sure you are allowed to fly drones in Pakistan.
The DJI Mavic Pro is comparatively noisy compared to the more expensive models that have propellers that create lesser sound, so you'll hear the Mavic Pro before you see it if it headed for you.
