Garmin seems to be adding cameras to a lot of its top-line handhelds: now it’s the turn of the GPSMAP 62 series, which will get the five-megapixel-camera-equipped 62sc and 62stc units in the third quarter of 2011. Adding the camera is only a $50 premium over the non-camera-equipped equivalents (Rich thinks that means a price drop for some units). That said, $600 for a GPS is a lot of money.
Pentax already makes a compact digital camera with built-in GPS (see previous entry) so their announcement yesterday of a GPS unit for use with some of their digital SLRs is not too surprising. The $250 O-GPS1 GPS unit works with Pentax’s K-5, K-r and medium-format 645D cameras, and appears to do a bit more than just work as a GPS logger. It’s weather-resistant (something I sometimes worry about when using my Nikon GPS unit), and it even has an astrophotography function: it uses GPS, a compass and accelerometers to figure out where the camera is pointing, and activates shake reduction to reduce star trails in long-exposure images. (Considering the wide field of view in camera lenses when used for astrophotography, that could allow much longer exposures without having to resort to an equatorial mount.) Available in July. Via Photography Blog.
Photography Blog has a review of the Fujifilm FinePix XP30, a rugged pocket digital camera with built-in GPS. The review cites some problems with both the camera’s ruggedness and its GPS. “Putting GPS on the camera is a great idea, but living in England as we do, we couldn’t get it to work because of the bad weather we experienced at the time of testing. There are good GPS systems on the market that can get a signal when indoors and in tunnels but the XP30 can’t even get through clouds.”
Two new point-and-shoot digital cameras from Panasonic with built-in GPS, announced in January, are available this month: the 14-megapixel travel compact ZS10 or TZ20, which I presume is a successor to the ZS7/TZ10, and the 12-megapixel ruggedized TS3 or FT3, pictured at right. (They have different product numbers in different markets.) A Navteq press release (via) talks about how these cameras use their POI data as well as lat/long coordinates. Photography Blog has a review of the TS3 (FT3), which has this to say about the GPS functions:
This provides real-time information naming the location at which your shot is being taken. This is displayed ticker-tape fashion along the bottom of the back screen. Panasonic claims the on-board info covers 203 countries, thus encouraging worldwide use, and more than a million landmarks. What’s more it appears to work, competently picking out our local National Trust property. We live on a bend in the river, which was enough to fool it, so using the camera back at home we were classified as living across the water. While in daily use GPS might seem a bit of a gimmick — and is a function that can be turned on or off at will, there’s some use to be had perhaps if you’re abroad and haven’t purchased a guidebook to otherwise discover what’s what — or want to plot the route of your travels via Google maps or the social media of your choice later. Longitude and latitude coordinates are stored in the particular JPEG image’s Exif data.
Both cameras cost $400.

Macworld has an extensive review of the GPS-equipped Casio Exilim EX-H20G. “The EX-H20G also has some of the best in-camera GPS features we’ve ever seen, thanks to its intuitive map interface, points-of-interest database, real-world location names (not just raw latitude and longitude data), and easy integration with the mapping services in Flickr, Google Earth, and Picasa.”
