    Jobo now has a device to record all of your coordinates and it sits in the hot shoe of a camera. Kind of neat.

    See it here.

    that's cool. I should invest in one of those. I've left my whole camera bag at the college I go to overnight once. Luckily one of my friends found it and gave it back the next day. Better yet, I should just keep up with my stuff :smile:

    Would be pretty useful if your camera was stolen. :smile:

    It probably matches based on date/time. So if you wanted to do it with scanned film shots you would have to get the data from a date/time film back or put in your date/time of each shot you scan manually I suppose. Good idea using the hotshoe to trigger it though.
