I admit I actually had to read all of the instructions. There are no comments here! For the most part it’s plug-and-play, but it helps to be familiar with your computer directory structure. While its not perfect, I have to say it does the job and offers things that no other unit can do. Main unit without adapter 68 x 20 x 43 mm Weight: On my camera it seemed to fit pretty well, but I definitely kept an eye on it since it is just a friction fit. Be the first to review this item.

I admit I phohogps had to read all of the instructions. Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Works great, easy to use I got this unit before a birding trip to Florida. See any errors on this page? One of the more exciting announcements from the otherwise slightly drab keynote at Macworld Expo in January was that iPhoto ’09 would support geotagging.

When we got back to the hotel the combination of the software with an internet access made it very straight forward to tag the GPS location to the photos. And that’s why 3rd party software doesn’t support it and probably never will. I am photogls a Nikon D90, and was outside in a wide open area on a sunny day in a major city in the U. Our goal at Jobo was to automate this process, which we have accomplished with our breakthrough new photoGPS and capture and process technology enabling photographers to find specific images that they want to share within seconds.


We love that it doesn’t just embed the coordinates in the files, but looks them up online and writes the proper longhand location — down to the street — into the relevant IPTC fields. Dropped the photos into iPhoto and there they were on the map! The Mac software is sluggish, however, and not that friendly, and the unit itself falls out of the hot shoe too easily; a tightening screw would be welcome. One capture just needs joob Megajoule MJ.

Overall, it does what it says it does, and works well, but the software is where I find the JOBO falls short.

Software is simple to use and intuitive.

Geotagging has become an important part of digital photographic organization, classification and notation. It was good at getting a pretty instant satellite lock — impressive given the shocking GPS-locking performance of the Nikon Coolpix P It claims 10m accuracy, though in our tests it was at least twice as good as this outside.

No problems with the hot shoe on canon products. In addition, Latitude, Longitude and Altitude are also available.

Jobo announces Photo GPS camera add-on (again)

The photoGPS itself needs to be charged, though it never ran out of juice in our days of testing. The process involves phhotogps coordinates through GPS triangulation, and embedding them in a way that allows a photographer to store the location to which the photograph was taken within the digital image file itself.

When the photoGPS is triggered, it saves the current location data to its own internal memory. I had read that some reviewers had problems with the unit sliding out of the hot shoe.

The person that said it doesn’t work indoors, hit the acquire button before you enter a building and it will use the last sat info for the images. I attached the unit to the hot shoe of my Canon XTi and fired away.

This is an internet based TOY. Be the first to review this item. If three or more of the NAVSTAR satellites are in transmission range of the GPS unit, through simple mathematical calculations based on the distances between each orbiting satellite and the receiver, a position is determined. Shooting 30 pictures, only 19 GPS tags were recorded.

For the most part it’s plug-and-play, but it helps to be familiar with your computer directory structure. Photpgps be interested to see how it works when I try it in the mountains of Tennessee Date published: It captures info after the shot is taken.

Through an innovative new capture and process technology, this affordable new device allows automatic geo-tagging by capturing raw GPS data and time which enables new and more efficient ways to organize, search, visualize, and share photo collections.
