The video is dated April at first. Spark and Mavic share exactly the same Go4 app. What you see is a glitch in the Go4 (or a old / hacked app) that shows some of the Mavic menu when you are using Spark. One time I got some dialog in Chinese but I didn't expect anything good out of it. That doesn't mean you can process such resolution without burning something or impacting flight time.See by yourself (at 5:06). 4K with DJI Spark! One day, maybe!
1080P 1920x1080 (30fps)
24fps 30fps 48 fps
actually i have seen the same menu today...
I switched to the Mavic camera OSD to find out if i can enable DNG on the Spark (which i failed to do right now) but i had all the same video resoltion choices as on the Mavic. That early version probably HAD no spark camera settings OSD so ironically it looked exactly like what i had to work hard for
I WAS able to use the style selection and with -1/1/0 or 0/1/0 i was getting wonderful results.
Choosing a higher resolution just falls back to 1080p :-(
Its complex, the chip is able to deliver a 4k stream and it DOES a "more-then-1080p" stream on the Spark as well, but they use EIS as replacement for the third axis of the Spark gimbal so the high res gets cropped down to 1080p.
IF we manage to enable a higher res EIS maybe will fail or at least be hampered. 4k is out of the Question, the lens is not good enough IMO but MAYBE (and thats a HUGE maybe) 2,7k. But on the other hand 1080p on 0/1/0 looks good already.
DOnt bother me on that, its not wished for in this forum but all good comes to the ones who wait
....quite frankly, It would seriously worry me if DJI throttled that Spark camera up to 4k (even 2.xk), and even if DJI did, the 4k would in all likelihood be pretty horrendous and unusable (I could see a crippled 4k 24p or 30 interlaced max with this Spark lens technology !). Give me 1080 at 60 progressive frames and high bit rate AND super EIS (or, better, optical) on the next Spark iteration, and I would be ecstatic.
Anyhow, 4k is out of most of the consumer's realm currently, you need a 70+ inch 4k Ultra screen to even notice the difference between that and 1080p HD (and streaming 4k through "the Net" through many consumer-owned laptops could be problematic (could be....not IS) without a 4k Ultra computer screen).........4k ? I can leave it....for now, thank you very much...
You have a lot more to work with, when using 4K, think about cropping for example
...sure there would be "a lot more to crop" with 4k......but we're talking about a 1080p Spark using EIS currently-- apparently, the best "it" can do. Imagine trying to crop a heavily interpolated Spark 4k vid (I wonder if the Spark would just up-sample interpolate to 4k from EISed 1080p) ? Using the Spark's current "camera", how could one get any usable 4k from this drone's camera with its 2 axis gimbal? Unless the next gen Spark comes with optical IS.....but the cost for OIS camera tech would probably drive the Spark cost up to $700 or $800-ish.....unless, a 3 axis gimbal configuration is forthcoming (but 3 axis would be cost $$$ competing with OIS)
