Local Drone Laws

So your standing in a new town, state, on vacation in another country and you want an aerial view, so you plop down your backpack, pull out your drone, turn it on, connect to it and take off.
Next thing you know your surrounded by the cops thinking your the next UBL and spying with an aerial IED.

As with all activities, especially in a foreign country you really need to check local laws first. Even in ground based photography you can get in trouble in areas without a permit if your shooting for commercial purposes.

What do you do, who do you call?  More after the jump...

New Profoto A1 "The world’s smallest studio light:"

**It looks like the old might Q-flash may have meet its maker with the new Profoto A1, With more technology and some better stats its shaping to be the next choice for wedding and strobist type photographers alike. With full power recycling at only 1.2 seconds with built in Li-ion battery its should be a dream for anyone who needs to overpower anything, and quickly. Support for Nikon and Canon at first with Sony coming later, this flash will be a game changer for many. Full PR below:
The Profoto A1 might be the smallest flash we’ve ever made, but it’s still built to the same impossibly high standards we’ve set ourselves over the last fifty years.

Our focus with the A1 was to create a flash that delivers a truly high quality of light, which is why it features a round head which delivers light that’s both natural and beautiful with a pleasing soft-smooth fall-off, that blends seamlessly with the ambient light.

Thanks to a smart magnetic mount built into the head, light shaping tools and modifiers can be clicked on and off quickly and easily. Within seconds you’re being creative with light, shaping it.

It also has a zoom function that allows you to make fine adjustments to the spread of light by simply twisting the zoom ring on the head, and for accuracy it has a modeling light built-in to the head – so you can see what you’re going to get before you press the shutter.
