Canon EOS with GPS tagging
« on: May 03, 2011, 04:13:11 PM »
Would like to know if Canon is going to incorporate GPS tagging in the new line up of EOS bodies.  This will determine whether or not I upgrade from my 50D

This is a rumors site.  If you want to know something, wait for the press release from Canon.

One thing I do know is that right now, you can geotag images taken with your 50D by adding a WFT-E3A and a compatible 3rd party GPS unit.  Granted, it's not exactly a cost-effective solution...

There was talk some time ago of a portrait grip solution which had GPS hardware built in, similar to the way that the WiFi one can. What ever happened to that?

There are also some solutions that clip into the camera hotshoe (not much use if you want to use you flash and geotag an image).  For example:

I'm not sure of availability of these.

The SX230 HS has built in GPS, and the Sony DSC-HX5V and DSC-TX7 have built in GPS as well. If pocket cameras can have GPS, why not DSLRs ?

Personally, I'm not using a grip, and dislike the idea of buying one in order to get GPS due to size & price.

I wouldn't mind having a grip with GPS, but having to buy a grip to attach ANOTHER thing that is the GPS, that's just too much for me

I mostly use 2 1D cameras wih a Black Rapid duo strap.  So a GPS in camera isn't a lot of use. 
So I've bought an I-GotU GT600 (http://global.mobileaction.com/product/product_i-gotU_GT-600.jsp)
It's really small 2" square, records 262,000 points, fully customizable & cheap (less than $100).  Now all my photos are geotagged with Lat, Long, Altitiude. I do the data matching on my PC after downloading the photos & the GPS data.
Includes my wife's pics from her G10 when she's with me.
Best $100 I've spent.
