I have the Garmin 60CSx GPS unit, which is compatible with my D700. I want to add geotagging capability to my D7100 but, based on the many negative reviews I have read, I am reluctant to purchase either of the Nikon units. I have not yet been able to find any info on w/n the Garmin 60CSx will work with the D7100 and if a cable adapter that will fit the D7100 GPS connection is available to attach to the Nikon MC-35, since there is no 10 pin connection on the D7100.
What software do you recommend to add the GPS coordinates to the camera's EXIF data?
I imagine strapping it to the tripod for that sort of work and many forums suggest its possible to connect, just need to source the cable. Even 'velcroing' it to a home made platform on the hotshoe wouldnt be impossible to lug around
Thanks Nick2013 Yes I agree with you so my initial thought was the pricey nikon unit, then i looked into some other units on ebay and found good reviews but seeing tho i had what i considered on of the best gps on the market already and my task when geotagging will involve the tripod mostly I was considering this cable idea to join both these great pieces of gear shouldnt be that hard. But maybe it will. I am happy to take any recommendations on aftermarket / ebay gps units that others have tried and can rate that are compatible with the d7100. The marrex mx-g20m (with display is looking the goods but the marrex mxg20 without the display has the right price tag. ongoing project. Thanks for your interest.
I have had great luck using HoudahGeo on my MAC... using a tracker and downloading the tracks then merging with photos. I think you can also do it with lightroom. You might also look at the PROMOTE GPS receiver... I have one for the D700 AND the D7100 and have had good luck with those also.... They mount on hotshoe and plug directly into camera and use camera battery...
