I remember for the 1D X Canon offered an external GPS receive "GP-E1" for around $300 that you could attach to the camera. That one included a compass. So I thought that the built-in versions are at least as advanced as that one. There was an even larger one, the "GP-E2" for the flash hot shoe.Only if it also contains a compass. Your location and range aren't enough, you need direction too.
EDIT: Unless, of course you're looking straight up, as Neuroanatomist pointed out!
Really off topic and it's not that germane so I hesitate (for a microsecond) before wading in :-DJapanese people have another mentality though. If their employer tells them to keep a secret, they will do that.
Besides PBD's usage, I use wide angle CPLs to reduce reflections for waterfalls. Taking shots with and without but generally using the shot with CPL as looking through the water in pool of the waterfall (flat water not turbulent) is better than reflections. Reflections on wet rocks within the waterfall show up as harsh lighting.I would like to take the opportunity and ask for your experience: Is a polarizer a safe choice when using UWA lenses? I mean I read that some part of the sky will be polarized and some less or not at all. This would create a not so appealing photo.

The GP-E2 has an electronic compass inside, sadly Canon decided to stop reading that sensor with the R series. My EOS-M will log the direction, my R5 won't.I remember for the 1D X Canon offered an external GPS receive "GP-E1" for around $300 that you could attach to the camera. That one included a compass.

Exactly what I do with my 7D MkII when on a trip, with one extra step ... when you want to it to stop (at the end of the day): pull the battery out of the body and charge if necessaryOn a 5DmkIV or 7DmkII: it's a -lot- easier or much less error-prone: turn it on, it remains on, and when you want to it to stop (at the end of the day): pull the battery out of the body - no way to forget to turn it on the next morning: you insert the battery and it's on and ready by the time you need it.
It's more fair to not ask and put pressure on people who "can't tell" to begin with. Unethical to pressure people to be unethical. Dang, couldn't your "pro" friend just pick up the cam and see for himself? Aren't they getting R3 loaners? Oh yeah, NDA.Being a retired sportphotographer having covered 6 Olympic Games, I still have a number of friends working at the Tokyo Olympics. I asked one of them who is a dedicated Canon user, to try finding out regarding the R3 sensor from those down there that might know...
When my friend visited Canons pro service desk to have his gear cleaned today, he simply asked the service technician and got a straight simple answer back;
”The R3 have 45MP”
This of course can be false... but if a Canon Pro photographer asks another Canon Pro staff, wouldn’t it be more fair to simply say ”I can’t tell”, rather then giving professional a lie or a wild guess without saying so...?
