Photo

IMG_0441.PNG 

  • DNG (RAW) - This mode takes a raw fish-eye photo with a 180° FOV at a 4096×3072 pixels resolution in a DNG format. DNG is compatible with professional grade editing software such as Photoshop or Lightroom.
  •  JPEG - JPEG mode takes a screen shot of the video stream at a 1920×1080 pixels resolution. The image quality is slightly degraded because video image stabilization tends to remove sharpness and accentuate edges. In this mode, you can quickly take pictures (shutter delay is very short) that are not distorted and with a light file size.
  •  JPEG 180 - lets you take a fish eye shot with a 180° FOV. This mode offers small editing possibilities.

The default picture format is DNG, slide the red dial at the bottom of the screen to change exposure.

 

Taking photos

On your Parrot Skycontroller 2, press the  A.png button to take a photo.

The internal memory capacity of the Parrot Disco is 32 GB, the number of stored photos is dependent upon the format selected.


For best photo quality, we recommend leaving the photo setting in DNG mode.

 

Time-lapse
