The camera shown on the Spark also seems to be different from the Mavic, to the extent that it does not Pan left to right, but only tilts up or down.

DJI has just launched the Mavic, a personal drone with 4k video capabilities. The drone folds down into a very compact size and can be flown for as long as 27 minutes, The DJI Mavic also has some of the features we saw with the DJI Phantom 4, including follow mode and obstacle avoidance.
