GPS Receiver matches waypoints to camera timestamp
MacNN has reviewed the GiSTEQ PhotoTrackr DPL900, a small GPS device that is bundled with software to allow users to simply and quickly add location information to digital photos. After carrying both the DPL900 and a digital camera on a photo shoot, the GPS device matches the timestamp of the user's digital camera after recording where the user was over the same time period. It captures waypoints, rather than tracking the location every second.
The included software is a rebranded version of JetPhoto, which supports GeoTagging, basic cropping and editing and Flickr uploads. The software does not integrate with iPhoto, requiring users to manually drag images into iPhoto after adding GPS info.
PhotoTrackr requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, but if you want to tag and use RAW files you must upgrade to PhotoTrackr Pro, which is a $20 upgrade. The unit itself is $70.
