How to Use Spark’s Pano Mode


Sometimes in aerial photography you want to capture more and go beyond the frame size. But how do you reach a crystal clear, wide-angle image with the Spark’s 25mm equivalent lens?
Spark’s panorama mode can help you achieve that. Now, let’s take a look at how to use Spark’s Panorama mode to get breathtaking landscape photos with low distortion.
Spark Panorama Modes
So far Spark is the only DJI drone which features the panoramic photo shooting. It supports horizontal, vertical and 180° Panorama modes.
In horizontal mode, Spark will automatically take nine photos and stitch them together for a dynamic wide-angle panorama shot. While the vertical Panorama mode will take three photos and stitch them together vertically to produce a 16:9 aspect ratio image.
In addition to the existing vertical and horizontal Spark Panorama modes, DJI recently introduced a new 180° Panorama mode which can stitch 21 photos together to create a 180° panoramic photo.
Horizontal Spark Panorama Shooting
First, tap camera settings and select the horizontal mode under the Panorama mode, then adjust the gimbal tilt, tap the shooting button to start shooting.
During the shooting process, the aircraft will use the current location as the initial position and auto pan. Spark will automatically tilt the camera to take 9 photos. When it’s done, the aircraft will return to the initial position.
Vertical Spark Panorama Shooting
Similarly, by tapping on the camera settings, you will be able to select the vertical mode under the Panorama mode and start shooting.
During the shooting process, the aircraft will remain hovering, the camera will automatically capture three photos from the chosen composition. It will start from middle frame, followed by upper frame and completed with the low angle frame.
In horizontal and vertical mode, if you tilt the camera down, Spark will automatically rotate around the current position to capture photos.  However, in 180° Panorama mode, the gimbal will keep a fixed central position.
180° Spark Panorama Shooting
Make sure that you have installed the latest firmware on your drone and remote controller and the latest DJI GO 4 mobile app in order to use the 180° Pano mode. Once you have updated the firmware and the DJI GO 4 app, you will be able to select the 180° mode under the Pano mode and start shooting.
Stitch Photos into Panoramas
After you finish your panoramic photo shooting, you can tap the playback button to check photos. By tapping the photo you’ve captured, DJI GO 4 will automatically stitch them into a panoramic photo. Don’t disconnect the aircraft while stitching because your phone needs to download photos from the aircraft. After it’s done, click the download button, the panoramic photo will automatically be saved to your phone.
If you want a high-resolution photo, you can use DJI Media Maker or other stitching software to easily stitch RAW images into a panorama.
It should be noted that when the aircraft’s GPS signal is weak, the surface texture is not clear or when it’s in strong wind, the aircraft may not perform precision hovering. This might affect the stitching quality.
Now you know how to take panos with your Spark,  so feel free to share them with us in our Offical Owners Facebook group and Skypixel.

Basically, it is released in TUTORIAL and then I top and highlight this thread to let more people get this tutorial. So you can see it in every section of the forum~Like the digest ones and some announcement of our products/activities/regulations can be seen in every section~ Hope this useful~

Beside that the Phantoms don't have Spark's Pano Mode, you're making some nice tutorials, thanks

Regarding the DJI Media Maker, are there a page describing this SW and is there more DJI SW somewhere that might be practical when droning around? - never heard of this before.

Gash, topic is sticked so appear in all forum cats..

Nice tut but u should mention abut merging panos more - especially in 3rd part apps. Pano merged by Go4 is low quality. For example i use adobe lightroom + adobe cc 2017 to merge and tune - perfect combo.

Sure I get that, however, the top listed items on the Phantom forum section is getting so long that you have to start scrolling down to see what is the most current postings/replies.
Nothing against Sparks just rather not see that product specific material on another product section.
Thanks!

I have to agree, the sticky should be important info for the Phantom, a better solution would be to make the Tutorial Forum more visible on the menu.

Thank you and yes please!
I liked your "Three Ways to Create Depth..." tutorial and would like more of that info

However, as I noted previous, I would just like to see product specific info either in that other product section or as KedDK stated that we put this useful and helpful tutorials in a section of their own.
Either that or keep them product specific and applicable but better control all the top listed items being put there, that list, of late, has been growing.

Again thank you for your consideration!

I think she (?) means the jpg's from the SD card. Also referred to as the 'raw' pictures from the pano.

Maybe DJI wants you to be jealous that their "flagship" portable drone doesn't have this feature and you'll by a Spark as well?

They will put this when they release a new FW (with new geofencing and performance limitations) , so you won't resist to upgrade....

Finally somewhere where i can post, cant make a new topic etc. Anyway been messaging with DJI support and its no help at all. Ive provided screenshots and video of my phones screen to show exactly what im pressing etc. Phone is connected to RC and that to Spark and i cant freaking do panoramas while im in nature in Thailand and leaving soon. So freaking sad about it and support just copy pastes me answers. basically i can do good std single shot pictures and all the videos and tracking etc features. Not panoramas, not any of the 3 options.
It just shows:
https://my.pcloud.com/publink/show?code=XZizlX7Zu4nAJ21mnS5GQGaJ1oOQnuhKdYQX

And i have tried this 10m up, 30m up,100m up, no wind, still pictures, very stabile etc etc.... Have the fastest SD card available that spark had on the suggested sd card sheet.

Cheers fellowe droners!

There's something I've been doing manually with the phantom 4 and 4 pro for a while - which is very time consuming... is HDR 360°s

Is there a way to send word to the developers for a way to combine the 5 way exposure bracketing to the pano modes?

There are quite a few examples on my FB page:

pano not working

I've been trying to get this feature to work since I got my spark last month. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong but I consistently get an error. It's either "shooting is not permitted", "linking canceled due to shooting timeout", or "take off and try again". What I have tried:
  • flown in multiple areas some restricted airspace where I have bypass the security after obtaining ATC clearance, others in unrestricted airspace.
  • sport mode both on and off
  • both with and without OTG cable
  • I've tried all the shooting modes, vertical, wide, sphere etc.
My setup:
  • running DJI Go 4 app on a Galaxy Note 8
  • latest firmware on drone and controller



Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? I'd hate to have to send it in or get it replaced. It certainly seems like a software issue.

telling me to take off and try again even tho i'm already in the air

Also if anyone else gets incorrect telemetry on flight data light altitude, speed and distance. That seems to be hit or miss if it works or not. Any tips would be appreciated.
