DJI To Showcase Two New Drones And Introduce Unique Sphere Mode At IFA 2017 in Berlin

Quieter Mavic Pro Platinum, Obsidian Color Phantom 4 Pro, And New ‘Sphere’ Mode For The Spark Make Aerial Photography More Fun And Enjoyable

DJI, the world’s leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, has introduced two new drones, the Mavic Pro Platinum and Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian and announces the ‘Sphere’ mode for the Spark at IFA 2017 in Berlin.

“DJI continuously looks for ways to improve its products and introduce new features, many of which are the result of the positive feedback and requests we received from customers around the world,” said Paul Pan, DJI Senior Product Manager. “Starting with our Osmo Mobile Silver handheld stabilizer, DJI has been expanding its product variations to meet the different lifestyles and needs of consumers. Similarly, we’ve done the same with two of the most iconic DJI drone products, the Mavic Pro and Phantom 4 Pro. The Spark’s newly added ‘Sphere’ mode will also introduce a new way for people to experience the fun of aerial photography.”

The New and Improved Mavic Pro Platinum

The DJI Mavic Pro Platinum takes all of the advanced features of the Mavic Pro which revolutionized personal flight and builds on them.  It is ideal for travelers, amateur photographers, and outdoor sports enthusiasts.

With an 11 percent gain in flight time taking it up 30 minutes coupled with a 60% noise power reduction[1], the Mavic Pro Platinum provides the best portable drone experience yet. Additionally, the drone’s compact and powerful body has also been created with an attractive platinum colored shell. The increased flight time and quieter operation has been achieved by integrating new electronic speed controllers (ESC’s) and freshly designed propellers which are also compatible with the current Mavic Pro.

Furthermore, pilots of the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum benefit from a portable, powerful and easy-to-use camera drone that features a 4K stabilised camera, 4.3 mile (7km)[2] range, innovative FlightAutonomy technology to sense obstacles up to 49ft (15m) away and a range of intelligent flight modes that make it extremely fun and easy to fly.

DJI Spark: Capture Stunning ‘Sphere’ Panorama Images

Spark is an easy-to-use, fun-to-fly mini camera drone that lifts off from the palm of your hand to capture and share those special moments on the go. Spark is the first consumer drone that users can control by hand gestures alone, whether it’s sending it up and away, taking a selfie or shooting a video, or calling it back.

With the newly introduced Sphere mode in the Panorama photo feature, users now have more ways to enjoy the Spark and can easily produce a panoramic photo with a fisheye lens effect. This ‘Sphere’ can then be shared directly to social media sites, some of which already support interactive images. The new feature will be included soon in the forthcoming DJI GO 4 mobile app and Spark firmware updates.

This mode joins the following recently announced firmware updates which allow Spark users to get the best flying experience with easy to use photo and video functions:

  • 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
  • Optimization of the PalmLaunch function for better stability after takeoff
  • Improved control accuracy under the QuickShot Dronie mode
