Been wanting to incorporate GPS data with my pics. I've been considering a few options and am looking for any insights from others..
1) Stand Alone GPS data matched w/ pictures
I know you can match your stand alone gps log data to your camera's pictures via software.
Pros: Nice because I don't have to have another device.
Cons: Having to ensure the time on both devices are synchronized and the GPS is around & running when you're shooting.
2) GPS enabled P&S
They are offering these now which is nice.
Pros: An all inclusive solution. Plus when you turn on the camera, the gps is turned on at the same time. No complications...
Cons: I guess one downside is ensuring the gps chipset in the camera is a decent sirfstar III or better chipset otherwise I have to deal with mediocre reception. The other downside is the lens you have is pretty much the lens you get. Plus the cost involved of a new camera.
3) GPS logger for my D300
Pros: SLR performance & lens flexibility. Lots of alternatives for a gps device using either a bluetooth gps units with a bluetooth receiver (Foolography, etc) or a wired hotshoe mounted gps unit.
Cons: Cost of hotshoe gps or bluetooth gps and receiver. Size of SLR system. Power for bluetooth gps.
Are any of you already running a gps enabled shooting setup or also considering one?
For those running one, what are you running and can you share any experienced insights?
For those considering one, what are the pros/cons I may have missed & what are you considering for your solution?
