DJI Spark Hack to Film in 4K! Will it work?! Drone Flight Friday! [4K]

DJI Spark Hack to Film in 4K! Will it work?! Drone Flight Friday! [4K]

Today on Drone Flight Friday we’re going to see if we can use our DJI Spark to film in 4k! Obviously the camera on the Spark won’t film in 4k but if we strap a 4k camera to it it should take 4k right?! We’re going to attempt to take some 4k footage with both the GoPro Hero 5 Session and the GoPro Hero 6 Black.

I’m so excited to see if this works, but you probably shouldn’t do it as adding something to your drone changes DJIs original flight specifications.

    I like the 1080P better!

  2. Wongwingyu Billy on November 5, 2021 at 9:35 am

    Dji is more nice

  3. Coffee Jaytee on November 5, 2021 at 9:35 am

    Have u tried putting the gopro on the stand it comes with and then attach it on the spark?

  4. ndeco2 on November 5, 2021 at 9:35 am

    This is not hack

  5. Electronical Universe on November 5, 2021 at 9:35 am

    Spark Image is much better.

  6. george cassir on November 5, 2021 at 9:39 am

    Why Dji don’t update the camera to be 4k instead of Full HD 🤔 so we could replace it and pay extra money for the new 4 K camera you must send them our comments
    That to be able to upgrade our full HD to 4 k paying for example 100 $ extra dollars to get the 4 k cam

  7. Tahir Ahmed on November 5, 2021 at 9:40 am

    The 1080p video footage looks amazing , I will test my DJI spark soon ,only just got it from eBay

  8. Drone Obsessed Jerry on November 5, 2021 at 9:40 am

    Very interesting. Glad you weren’t Badu injured.

  9. Miguel Motta on November 5, 2021 at 9:40 am

    Please do the same thing with a Mavic Mini! It’ll be fun

  10. MrMinecraft Vlogs on November 5, 2021 at 9:41 am

    Can you please do another giveaway for the spark, mine just crashed and broke and I need another one.

    6:15 look at his arm

    his arm touched the prop blade XD

    that would hurt

  12. Kuks125 on November 5, 2021 at 9:43 am

    The 1080p is better than the 4k

  13. wenepzoli on November 5, 2021 at 9:47 am

    👍☀️👆
    Super test!

  14. xamfd on November 5, 2021 at 9:49 am

    good vid! and wow with that cut on your arm, they are well named as flying blades, they can cut for sure!

  15. Alabama's FinestTM on November 5, 2021 at 9:49 am

    I too believe the stock 1080 camera is better than the go pro 4K cameras. Yeah there is higher resolution but there’s a huge difference between the codecs in the two cameras. Therefore, my vote is with the DJI stock camera; upscaled to 4K

  16. Robert Holsopple on November 5, 2021 at 9:50 am

    I’ll take the Sparks camera anyday

  17. B roll TV. on November 5, 2021 at 9:50 am

    The wieght of camera is not compatible with the body of the drone

  18. kalef1234 on November 5, 2021 at 9:51 am

    Oh man i was hoping to actually find a firmware or software hack. This is more of a jerry rig but if it works for you nice

  19. Honza Xr200 on November 5, 2021 at 9:53 am

    Is it hard/time consuming to upscale 1080p to 4k?

  20. Rob L on November 5, 2021 at 9:53 am

    I would be worried about stressing the motors on the spark to much with the extra weight

  21. george cassir on November 5, 2021 at 9:53 am

    Why you don’t remove the spark camera from full HD to 4k isn’t feasible?

  22. nic on November 5, 2021 at 9:54 am

    Spark WIN

  23. Alex Munoz on November 5, 2021 at 9:58 am

    Huh. I use mine for flying. Never took photos

  24. Land and Lore Photograph Off Road Adventures on November 5, 2021 at 9:59 am

    The Spark might just be 1080P but it is a good camera with a rather good lens on it as well..

  25. Mike Pine on November 5, 2021 at 10:02 am

    How much does the larger camera weigh? I’ve been curious to know how much the Spark can actually lift.

  26. inspktr51 on November 5, 2021 at 10:02 am

    Terrible footage from the 4k 😂

  27. Bebe Ndeso on November 5, 2021 at 10:02 am

    Spark much better I think

  28. Shane ORegan on November 5, 2021 at 10:04 am

    Sparks 1080 kicks arse!!

  29. MX Progression on November 5, 2021 at 10:05 am

    What drone can I fit a 9 black to ? Thanks

  30. f1pitpass on November 5, 2021 at 10:10 am

    Well done for trying!

  31. Coffee Jaytee on November 5, 2021 at 10:11 am

    Jeez. Your arm is bloody.

  32. Coffee Jaytee on November 5, 2021 at 10:14 am

    BLOODY HELL I HAVE A GOPRO 5 SESSION

    MWAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA

  33. Raj Saxena on November 5, 2021 at 10:14 am

    now do the same test with the go pro hero black 8

  34. Arish Van Jarales on November 5, 2021 at 10:15 am

    To be honest, even if the 4k is stabilized, the spark’s 1080 is waaaay better, the 4k looks washed out and overexposed.

  35. Orange County 714 on November 5, 2021 at 10:17 am

    I have a GoPro Karma with a Hero 5 Black, and I like my Spark better.. I know, I know, it was just a fun experiment, not a serious alternative..

  36. ARYAN PRABHUDESAI on November 5, 2021 at 10:18 am

    Now you can try this with the Hero 7 as it has Hypersmooth video stabilization or the dji osmo pocket

  37. Cruz, Zarek on November 5, 2021 at 10:19 am

    Good example of why Gimbals are a thing and in my opinion the 1080 looks better

  38. Mauricio Pancheri on November 5, 2021 at 10:19 am

    Thanks for the images….Amazing….Congrats from Brazil.

  39. James Poon on November 5, 2021 at 10:22 am

    hahahah

  40. MrBombastic8989 on November 5, 2021 at 10:22 am

    I put gopro hero3+ on my bugs b5w..b5w can support the weight of hero 3+. Flight time nearly same as using original camera. And need to balance the position of the camera so the weight will not intefere with the flight controlling..and yes im using rubber bands to fix the go pro LOL..easiest way to mount camera on drones

  41. CrabZilla on November 5, 2021 at 10:23 am

    1080P looks great I wonder if they have an editing program that can sharpen out a 1080p video and manipulate it to look like a 4K video that would be something don’t you think.

  42. paul boddy on November 5, 2021 at 10:23 am

    Yeah 4k looks shit 1080 is much better

  43. Squat the Planet on November 5, 2021 at 10:24 am

    click bait

  44. ThirdDegreeWitch on November 5, 2021 at 10:26 am

    1080p kicked the life out of that TOTALLY Overated Gopro . had 2 , gave them a fair chance….they are crap

  45. DJ Revolver on November 5, 2021 at 10:27 am
