Making the rounds
With sales figures of the grossly overpriced WiFi grips not going so well, it's been suggested new grips will be coming for a few cameras. The grips will be GPS capable.

If it were true, I'd expect to see them for the xxD and 7D initially

The source claims the GPS grips will not have WiFi as well.

  1. I want a GPS grip so bad. Can an third party make one? I take it Canon doesn’t release their specs to anyone else, so probably not.

    It would be nice. Some of the third party grips made for canon cameras are pretty sweet, including things like intervalometers and LCD screens to make it more than just “extra batteries with vertical buttons”

  2. I’d go for some kind of GPS system too – but the current Canon solution does seem to be too pricey.

    I think travel photographers/bloggers would snap up a reasonably priced Canon or third-party GPS tagging accessory. I would. Some point and shoot cameras already come with GPS built in, why not a $1,500 dSLR?

    I hope Canon is reading this!
