Will GPS become another trend of High-end Camera?

In the beginning of 2013, the camera manufactures have released many new cameras. What makes us interested is Nikon P520 and AW110s camera carries GPS.

What’s GPS camera? When shooting pictures, GPS camera can record the location information of the current photo such as latitude, longitude and altitude, which greatly enhances the information of the digital photos. When enjoying the photos, we can know when this photo is taken and what place is in the photo. With the built-in GPS, geotagging our photos has never been easier. However, GPS camera does not own the turn-by-turn navigation function like the GPS we use in our car. It just can locate the place where you shoot this photo, so that we can add the location information in the photo.

At present, Nikon, Sony and Panasonic have launched GPS camera in the market. In order to make their camera stand out, camera manufactures have made a lot of efforts. Besides GPS, cameras have been added many creative functions like waterproof, freeze-proof, shockproof, built-in compass and so on.

Equipped with such wonderful functions, is it hard to operate this GPS camera? We don’t need worry about this. It’s very easy to shoot photos with the GPS camera. When shooting photos, you just open the GPS in the settings, and then you just take photos as usual. The GPS camera will record the latitude, longitude and altitude automatically.

However, GPS camera owns its advantages. At present, GPS camera is not strong enough to search GPS satellite very quickly. Also, opening the GPS will consume much power of the camera. GPS camera has a long way to go.

There are various different options about the GPS camera. Whether they’re not or bad, Nikon has began a new era of digital camera. We can tell that other digital camera manufactures will launch their GPS cameras in the future soon. GPS will become another trend of High-end camera.
