What am I doing wrong? I’ve noticed unable to set certain photo settings like exposure compensation, same thing happened on litchi. I’m sure it’s an easy fix.

Just a thought...I read another post from you about the Spark being inconspicuous compared to the Phantom.

I've read other posts from members that some of the settings on DJI drones are not available on the Spark. This might be one of them?

Oh well, just a thought.

I think I figured it out. You can’t set exposure compensation on manual mode, you just adjust shutter speed to change the exposure compensation

There's no direct setting that adjusts Exposure Compensation separately like a DSLR would have. The Spark allows you to manually change only ISO and Shutter Speed (not Aperture) which in turn affects the EC value. Manual selection of proper White Balance is helpful too. You can use the Exposure Bracketing feature (AEB) in tricky photo situations. ND filters have a role in video as well. Using all of the above features the Spark has handled every situation I've come across

Most important to understand and use the on-screen histogram. It's nearly impossible in direct sunlight to rely solely on the phone's display.
