Sony launch GPS tracker for digital cameras

Share

Forget having to set make a note of where you were when you took a picture or shot some film on your digital camera. Sony have come up with a GPS device that will automatically add the time, date and location to each shot you take.

The GPS-CS1 is a small and light cylinder that will clip to a belt loop or bag, and keeps a rolling record of your location as you move about. You then need to transfer the GPS data and photos to the same computer, whereby the Image Tracker software synchronises the two.

The only caveat is that the tracker and camera must have their clocks in sync, otherwise you’ll probably get weird results.

Other software lets you view your journey as virtual pins on a Google Map.

Priced at US$150, but not sure when it’ll be available in the UK.
