All the Nikon recent release support gps, but only D3000, why?

There are many posters that do not see the need to include this feature or see any any reason to GPS tag photos.

You can always create a track file with an external GPS and add the GPS data in post processing.

Surely a combination of reasons:

- positioning of the lowest model of camera

- eliminates some amount of cost, important on the lowest price model

- simplicity of operation

- likely Nikon felt that this feature might not appeal to the majority of d3000 buyers

It seems that geotagging will to be a must in the future for all digital cameras and that will not cost any extra payment for the buyer. Nikon has always been the leading in the field. So I do not understand why D3000 has no gps too.

My Easytagger can do the post processing too. But I never trouble myself to do that since it can geotag directly.

The D3000 is also a generation old and has been superseded by the D3100.
