PhotoTrackr Plus Brings Geotagging To Nikon DSLRs

Here is good news for Nikon camera owners who love geotagging pictures. Folks at Gisteq have introduced the PhotoTrackr Plus that attaches to the camera’s 10-pin terminal and communicates with its transceiver via Bluetooth. The device allows you to geotag photos in both RAW and JPEG format. The GPS data is imported directly into your photo as you take it, so no extra steps are necessary, which speeds up the processing workflow, and there is no extra software needed to run the program, simply plug and play. In addition, the PhotoTrackr Plus also features 44 GPS tracking channels. The gadget is compatible with the Nikon D200, D300, D300s, D700, D2X, D2Xs, D2Hs, D3, D3X, and Fujifilm S5Pro. [Engadget]
