Hi All,

I'm using the D700 with the Solmeta GPS unit N2 (solmeta.com). I find it to be an excellent unit. It fits into the hotshoe or attaches to your strap. The camera attachment is direct to the ten-pin with no MC-35 required.

It also has a unique feature that I find absolutely necessary. If you go inside, or anywhere the satellites are not visible, it remembers its last fix and continues to send GPS information to the camera.

It runs on its own rechargeable battery, but you can also use the camera battery if you chose to. That is set by a mechanical switch on the unit.

It comes with its own version of the MC-30, so you can remotely release the shutter. This release also has a lock for long exposures.

I also will be receiving this week their ten-pin duplex attachment.
It plugs into the ten-pin socket and has two ten-pin attachments on the other end of a short cord.

If you need/want GPS I can't say enough about this product.
