Sony GPS-CS1: Tags Photos With Location

Illustration for article titled Sony GPS-CS1: Tags Photos With Location



This little GPS clips onto your digital camera to tag your photos with latitude and longitude. How? By synching the clock in the GPS with the timestamp on your photos, on your PC. Clever, clever, Sony! The included software handles the sync, and also puts your photos on a little map, tacked on by virtual thumbtacks. Lil' screenshot of the software, when you jump.

I really like the idea of a GPS unit to go with a camera. I have a Nikon D200 which is compatable with some GPS units, allowing you to add the lat, long, and universal time directly to the metadata of the picture.

The only problem is, in addition to needing a GPS unit that has a serial output (gross), you also have to buy a propriatary Nikon cable for $99 to hook that GPS unit up to the camera (which is out of stock everywhere on the internet anyway).

The system is not exactly made for portability (just think about having a GPS unit with it's 4' parallel cable, and then another 3' cable attached to that going into the camera.

Anyway, I wonder how much they will be selling this little guy for.
