"Nikon is finally ready to ship its GPS dongle, the rather lazily named GP-1. First announced back in August, the device slips into the hot-shoe connector of compatible cameras (D200, D3, D700, D90, D300 and the brand-new D3X) and records the positional information to the image. This can be picked up later for geo-tagging images, either at home (most image processing software now supports geo-tagging, including Nikon's own ViewNX) or by online services like Flickr."
This is a GPS unit that hooks into the flash connector and tags all your photos with GPS data. Most of the photo hosting sites such as Smugmug and Flickr can use this data and show where your photos were taken. This is such a cool device! I can't wait for Canon to release one.
