Geotagging on a carabiner

Now, this cool little device from Sony is a simple GPS position logger that will capture your location and time, and then sync this with the timestamp in a photo's EXIF data, adding location information. Just clip it to your camera bag when you set out on a shoot.
Using time and location recordings from Sony’s GPS-CS1 GPS device and the time stamp from a Sony digital still camera or camcorder, photo buffs can plot their digital images to a map and pinpoint exactly where they’ve been.

The 12-channel GPS unit is 3-½ inches long, weighs two ounces, and is sold with a carabineer to easily attach to a backpack or a belt loop.


To arrange your pictures geographically, import the logged data from the GPS device, using the supplied USB cable, and then download the digital images to a computer. The supplied GPS Image Tracker software synchronizes the images on your digital camera with the latitude, longitude and time readings from the GPS-CS1 device.

While Sony says it's for their cameras, I suspect it should work with any image with EXIF information...

Assuming I've read the right part from the article, that's only about £70. And yes, EXIF data should be enough.

There are quite a few pieces of software out there that can do this, though, and USB-capable GPS receivers aren't uncommon.
