Cameras with GPS - Casio EX-H20G with Hybrid-GPS and logger

Updated December 7th, 2010
Cameras with built-in GPS have seen some steady improvement, from the first models that could barely get a fix to this year's models like the Sony HX5V with AGPS that I use as my main compact camera, but now comes the Casio EX-H20G with Hybrid-GPS, that merges standard GPS with sensor derived positioning.

Casio first unveiled this concept nearly a year ago at CES 2010 with the EX-H10G prototype and launched the consumer EX-H20G version at Photokina in September. The Hybrid positioning is not the only GPS related breakthrough as the large 3" screen shows a map with 10,000 picturesque sites and with the new v1.01 update it has become a GPS data logger. A test unit has been requested for the "GpsPasSion Labs", in the meantime you can use the [NEWS] Casio EX-H20G Hybrid GPS Camera topic in the "GPS and Mobile News" forums to discuss.

Updated August 7th, 2008 - Please welcome the Nikon COOLPIX P6000, the first consumer/prosumer grade camera with a built-in GPS module for picture geocoding on the fly. This new entry in the popular Coolpix range is certain to attract a lot of attention at the upcoming...

... Photokina show, but we'll have to see how it lives up to the hype.

While one concern would be the impact on the battery life, the main one is related to overall GPS performance, as those who have been following GpsPasSion over the years and particularly the GPS Performance Comparisons know that cramming a GPS module into a compact device requies some work to make it work well. It will have to offer excellent time to fix and accuracy to be a valid replacement for the sturdy Digicam+GPS Datalogger combo many of use have adopted to geocode our pictures offline. Knowing which GPS chipset they are using and whether some form of AGPS will be available would give some initial indication of what to expect. You can use this topic of the "GPS and Mobile News" forums to discuss.

Updated December 31st, 2007
The last new item of the year goes to one of the more popular GPS developments of the year, the rise of picture geocoding, the action of embedding the lat/long in digital pictures for precise placement on online maps. There is no shortage of ideas by web developers and the latest in line are Nav2us who add GPS exports and a multi-site search engine...... You can use this topic in the forums to discuss.

Updated September 26th, 2007 - An update on picture geotagging with the arrival of new hardware, such as the Globalsat BT-335 or the Royaltek RBT-2300 Bluetooth data loggers (you can find a summary spreadsheet on dedicated data loggers in this thread of the forums).

New software too with new versions of Locr and and Google Maps are now available on Picasa Web Albums.

To keep track of these new developments, the comprehensive guide to share the way to geotag pictures with the "workflow", hardware, software, etc...has been updated...

Updated June 2nd, 2007 - Geotagging made the news this week with the announcement of Google's purchase of Panoramio, "terms confidential"...closer to us......, have added new languages to their website and released a new version of their excellent PC geocoding software as well as a Nokia S60 Smartphone version. There is also a new user-friendly application called PhotoMapper. You can use this thread of the forums to discuss.

Updated March 11th, 2007 - Picture geocoding is quite an experience and an addictive one at that! With new and more user friendly tools becoming available regularly more people should be joining in the fun...... The latest one is that has a dual approach : an online portal and an optional PC application. Here is a "mini-review" and the Geocoding Guide has been updated.

Updated March 1st, 2007 - Picture geocoding/geotagging is the action of adding the GPS position (latitude/longitude) to a picture to view the exact spot where it was taken. While this has been possible for a while, the availability of online maps of the world with Google Maps/Earth or Microsoft Live Search makes it more appealing than ever...

Here is a comprehensive guide to share the way to geotag pictures with the "workflow", hardware, software, etc...and you can use this thread of the forums to discuss.

Updated April 8th, 2006 - The geocoding of pictures has been in the news lately, first with the Ricoh/Globalsat ProG3/BC337 camera and now with the new Navman AIOs with NavPix, but thanks to beta......, you can geocode and share your pictures right now for free.

The way it works is that you upload a track recorded with your GPS and your digital pictures and after both are matched using the timestamp of the pictures, they are automatically placed on a Google earth background map. I tried it and it works well, you can see the results in this thread of the "Tracking" forums.

Updated 08/23/2005 (Good news often come in pair and after the relaunch of Emtac, an interesting program called Trine2GE is now available to let you view your tracks directly in Google Earth.

... You can use this thread to discuss Trine2ge.

As a reminder, the Trine can be purchased at StorageMedia for $227.

Updated 11/08/04
The review of the Trine has been a long time in the making, partly due to the number of test scenarios with the 4 concurrent serial Bluetooth profiles on board, but it is now online here! Find out whether Emtac has been able to "do it again" after releasing the first ever Bluetooth GPS in 2002 !

Updated 06/09
I've heard back from Steve at Transplant GPS and he confirmed the Trine is now shipping and that the free external antenna offer is still on for GpsPasSion Club members...
Stay tuned for more!

Posted 06/06
Emtac is releasing the Trine a follow-up to the first ever Bluetooth GPS released in the summer of 2002. "Early adopters" of GpsPasSion will remember that the site was originally setup to share my amazement with this GPS!

New features include:
- Removable battery (rated at 10 hours)
- Data logger with 24,000 points
- 4 simultaneous Bluetooth connections (a first)

It is priced at $250 and $280 with WAAS activated by default

Stay tuned for more and hopefully its inclusion in the upcoming revision of the BT GPS "shoot-out"!
