I'm more worried that the player in question can even read.

Of course the buffet is open ;-)

That's right...the licensee should pay. And if you don't have a license, you don't fly.

Biowizard: As it's the UK, I'll spell "offense" the proper way! ;-)

Thing is, this proposed new set of rules almost entirely, already exists. We already have a 400ft / 120m flying ceiling (above ground); we are already banned from flying near or over airports; we already have to keep our drones within line of sight. And responsible flyers, like me, do that. Because I want to be socially aware and be allowed to continue with my flying.

Oh - and our amazingly tech-savvy (NOT!) government, will "work with drone makers" to introduce GPS-based geofences around sensitive locations. Huh?

ALL this stuff is ALREADY THERE GUYS!

The ONE and only NEW thing - is that all drone pilots should be forced to sit and pass a "safety" test. AND ...

My ONE and ONLY gripe, is that I wonder WHO is going to be made to pay for that test? Yep, you gottit. Jo Public is going to be paying Yet Another Tax.

Of course, the "Bad Hombres" will continue in their misdoings, while WE pay the price. No OFFENCE intended!

If you wanna play you gotta pay. I work at an air service navigation provider and drones are menace. They need to be licensed and people take courses. No different than your car. If you are willing to pay for you car license, training, and insurance, why not your drone? Unless you are in the u industry you have no idea he level of stupidity some drone users are. This needs to be nipped in the bud before the lawful, proper users get screwed over and are banned

Lensmate: I certainly hope they have the foresight to regulate the future of pizza and parcel drone delivery. UK airspace is a tight squeeze as it is....

This will never happen. Except maybe on roofs. The liability issues will make it too costly.

Another good reason to root your phone and install a better OS on it.

I check dpreview every day...but not for "news" like this. Perhaps a "misc" section is needed. Does this "news" really deserve a front page??

Glad I stuck with my Nexus 6P...a killer phone. By the Pixel 3 Google, I'm hoping, will have figured it out. Need a few generations to get a phone right. That is what happened to the 6P...a culmination of fixing what went wrong. I think I'll bite with the Pixel 3, but it seems the first two are not value for money.

No. Annoying enough to post a comment.

newe: I've played with this new 1.6 version all weekend. It is slow, slow, slow. I can't figure out why. DXO and CS5 just fly while this version is slow. It is even slow opening files. Guess I'll wait and check out later versions.

Don't know....but CS5 and DXO are fast. Weird

newe: I've tried this and find it slow. I have quite an older machine, by CS5 flies on it. Affinity is slow for me. Are there settings to speed it up?

Tried fiddling with performance settings. Still very slow, especially with my D300 NEFs. Again, CS5 purrs along fast. Not sure why Affinity is like this. Nice program, but I am not going to change my PC for now.

Is affinity color aware with monitor profiles?

The real lesson is to stop posting all your nonsense life drivel on social media with pictures.

You can't tell if it is fog or a blown out sky...which is why I don't like it

kaustav Ganguly: Does this mean we can not use Nik collection as Photoshop plugin even if downloaded whilst it was a free product from Google?

Of course you can!! Why not?
