Just wondering what you guys think the chances of DJI adding DNG to the image file types. This would make the drone all that more enjoyable and creative.

Hi!

I know the Spark is ment for beginners and maybe not so professional work. But if the hardware is capable of shooting in raw/dng with a firmware update this would be highly welcomed and drastically increase the possibility to be more creative with its images.

Check out this poll: Shooting in raw is on second place. ;)

Kind regards,

Agreed. This is a necessity. You can even buy a camera for $150 these days that can shoot raw pictures. I was really surprised DJi locked out raw support for Spark.
And i'm 100% sure spark is capable of shooting DNG.

If the adobe lightroom for mobile can add it I am sure DJI can add it to the spark, I don't see it as a hard thing to do as they have the technology with the other drones. I'm of the opinion they have done this as this is their entry level drone, but commercially why do it? As I see it I bought a spark to see if I would like drones and if I did (which I do) I would upgrade in the future.

Take a long term view guys.

Would like to know too, as this is a crucial part of my photography and only having jpeg really limits the dynamic range of the camera.

I can see no reason why the Spark couldn't record .dng raw files (which would be great). And please turn down the video (over) sharpening at the same time!

I own a mavic pro, the DNg support is good.
But now I prefer the portability of dji spark now, but the lacks of dng support disappoint me so much.
Dji, please add at least this support to next firmware update.  Need that badly!!!

Yes, even if the "casual" user does not need RAW/DNG it is a must have feature if possible via firmware update

if DJI add raw/dng support I'll buy this drone immediately.
I know also many other photographers in my area who they want to buy the spark but with the lack of raw support they just waiting and holding their money.

Please add this basic feature which is blocked just by marketing probably. I will not buy this model without DNG/RAW support.

Im also in 25fps of video if is still not supported.

I definetely support the view that Spark should get RAW support. Although I can understand the marketing strategy of cripling Spark in favor of Mavic, I will not buy Mavic due to legal issues (Spark is under 600 gram and Mavic is over this barrier, which makes huge differnce here in Poland). Thus I would love to see RAW in Spark.

I understand why 4K it is not available because of not 3d gimbal but RAW pictures wouldn't be a problem and it would make me think to buy a second unit if so.
So I don't know why DJI are not updating or giving news on this.

They are working on more important stuff like new spark colours with matching props and rubber feet.

Thanks for the feedback!
Although everybody knows that in order to produce a JPEG file the sensor records DNG format at the first place. It is not a big deal for your software engineers, just a code to unlock the feature and the future as well.
And  YES it is super critical for photography applications!
We trust DJI and we are pretty sure that the first update for 2018 will include the DNG support.

Hi I bought the Spark for portability and travel. DNG / RAW support for photos is my main issue. If I take a photo with a bright sky or over the dark ocean it is hard to get the exposure right and something like a boat may look clipped. I can do local adjustments in Lightroom but with JPG I won't get enough detail on clipped highlights.

I wish DJI would implement this with a firmware update.
