The response to the irresistibly cute Spark from DJI – the fun-to- fly mini camera drone that can be controlled by hand gestures alone – has not only been off the charts but appealing to many different people as well. Perhaps due to its svelte-like weight at just 300g (less than a can of soda), making it possible to pop it into pretty much any handbag – but more and more women are wanting to know more about this must-have tech accessory.
So what better way than to host some of Cape Town’s most awesome women to lunch in celebration of Women’s Month and to check out the new Spark that’s now available in a kaleidoscope of colours. A fabulous group of bloggers, photographers and media personalities joined the weFix team at the Grand Café & Beach for an afternoon of sunshine and selfies.
With the picturesque backdrop of Table Bay, the Spark – the very first drone that can be controlled by hand gestures alone – was put through its paces as guests experienced the new, advanced gesture controls.
Shoot like a pro
Spark houses an impressive camera with a 1/2.3” CMOS sensor that captures 12-megapixel photos and shoots stabilized HD 1080p videos. When Spark takes off from your hand, it automatically enters Gesture Mode. This features new advanced gesture controls like PalmControl, which lets users control Spark with hand movements. This means you can send Spark up and away from you, take a selfie by giving it the finger and thumb ‘frame’ gesture, and call it back with just your hands.
So whether you’re filming a spectacular sunset or posing for a wedding party selfie, Spark is ready to launch within seconds whenever inspiration strikes and can be operated by a remote controller, a mobile device, or hand gestures alone.
And who said drones had to be dull? The Spark ia available in Alpine White, Sky Blue, Meadow Green, Lava Red, and Sunrise Yellow from weFix.
