"Anyone Using A Geo Tagger Here?"



Hi,
I am looking for a geo tagger. My budget is around $150. Anyone can suggest me some nice geo tagger within this budget? I need something which has good features and can fit in my budget. I checked up Nikon's geo tagger. But it seems to too expensive, around $250, way out of my budget.
Thanks in Advance.

There are many products can meet your needs within $150. Easytagger is $120 with built-in compass, data logger and its own battery. I read a lot good user comments.

And if you do not want such many features, Phoenix gps, Dawntech's are all in your price range.

There are lots of threads on this subject.

I've gotten good results with my Phottix GPS.
It comes with a wired remote.
I can plug my YongNuo ML-3A wireless remote into that port and trigger the camera shutter automatically when something interrupts the IRA beam.

Visit my Nikonians gallery.

Almost anything will work. As a geologist, I live and die by my GPS.

The least expensive GPS units have a battery, receiver, antenna, and memory. Usually sold as "spouse-tracking" devices, they cost between 100 and 150 USD. I have a Qstarz travel recorder that I turn on when I start in the morning and download when I return. Software supplied lets me export my track as a *.gpx file and clear the unit memory for tomorrow. That software will also tag my jpg files but not raw or dng.

In my workflow, I use "GeoSetter" (open source) to match image times to the gpx track and write geotags to my dng files.

I also have a Garmin 60 CSX that is 5 times larger and heavier. It saves gpx tracks and provides me real-time navigation information on a screen. I am working in young basalt lava and use the saved track to find my way back across the flows coming home.

It is so cool to be able to photograph an outcrop, collect a sample, and have its location in my pocket.

I purchased a nGPS, which is small, light, and runs off my camera battery, but does not run its battery down. And, it is fast. So, I am very happy with the nGPS geotagger on my D5100

I got this Easytagger Basic.
Cons: Simple plain package, a main device, a belt, a piece of using instruction. That is all.
No self battery, consume the power of the camera.
No compass.
No passthrough for remote.
Pro: Easy to use
quick aquisition with satellites and very accurate.
camera flash can fully pop up
