Garmin Adds Cameras to GPSMAP 62 Series
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…
Pentax Announces GPS Unit for Its Digital SLRs

Why More Cameras Don’t Come with GPS
On the New York Times’s Gadgetwise blog, Rik Fairlie asks why more digital cameras don’t come with GPS. “[C]amera makers say they haven’t adopted widespread use of GPS radios in cameras because it’s expensive — it can add almost $100…
