Pricewise they are about the same (MPP is a little bit more expensive than the P4A here in NL)
I know I have to add batteries, but the total will be about the same.
So the question is: portability vs image quality.
I think I like the last one more, although I have not made my decision yet.
But I'd rather start with a Spark, if DJI chooses to add 25fps so I can easily combine the footage with my other (25 / 50fps) footage.

Well that's a good point, and maybe I would do the same...but I'm to anxious to fly so don't know if I could wait very long to have my hands on a drone LOL, regarding image quality you might be right if that is the most important issue to you then P4 is the right choice...hope you can get in the air soon and have fun ;-)

Well I actually almost purchased the Spark. Had it in my cart already. But.....
Then I went through the specs and found out it did not support 25fps, so I cancelled.
I actually would prefer a Spark as my first drone.
Now I purchased a Osmo Mobile, to get started and wait some more to buy my first drone
I am afraid it is going to be a P4A....

Hi,

From the Terms and Condition page it is stated that:

Hi,
Actually, it is not an entry form. What you need is to fill in the information of your work after the submission, like what device you used, how you would like to describe your work and if there any labels about it~~~
And here is a link to help you check whether you submit successfully.
Photos are successfully submitted if you can find them under “My Works” on the contest home page. (https://www.skypixel.com/events/photocontest2017)
And if there are any problems, feel free to post here ~~~More than willing to help you fix them
