Great little GPS device

I use the GP-E2 with my new Canon 70D Camera. It can be shoe-mounted, placed in a AB-E1 Bracket attached to the camera (and connected with an interface cord which is provided with the GP-E2), or worn in a pouch on your belt (and connected with a longer interface cable also provided with the GP-E2). I don't use all the features. I am mostly interested in tagging my photos with GPS location data. In my limited experience with the unit, I find it to be quite accurate.

TRIED TWO - BOTH WERE HIGHLY INACCURATE

I would rate all my Canon products an A+, with the exception of the GPS GP-E2. This product gets an F from me. I purchased one and then immediately tested it for accuracy. The setup was easy but the coordinates it recorded were way off from what it should have been. Most were about 15 miles from where I was actually at.

The setup was easy but the coordinates it recorded were way off from what it should have been. Most were about 15 miles from where I was actually at. I tested it in 3 different locations throughout the Los Angeles area and each time the recorded location was highly inaccurate. I contacted Canon and was told: "Sometimes bad weather can affect the GPS data. Have you tried on multiple occasions, making sure that the GPS unit is securely connected to the camera?" Bad weather was not an issue, plus, my car GPS isn't affected by bad weather. I went to a local camera store to try another one - same problem. I knew the coordinates for the camera store and tested it right there. Again, the location the GPS recorded was 15 miles (as the crow flies) away from the camera store! If you have one of these, you'd better double check the recorded coordinates. Another issue that Canon did not respond to was the fact that the coordinates displayed under info on my Canon 5D MK3 LCD screen, were not the same as those showing up in the EXIF data!

Used Canon GP-E2 GPS

By

from San Antonio TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought the GP-E2 used. It didn't have the two cords to connect to the camera . The major failure was the lack of the Map Utility disc. That made the device useless. So back it went. Would't have bought it if the web description had stated that the Map Utility wasn't present.

Works great with the 70D

By

from Toronto, Ontario

Just purchased the 70D with the GPS-E2. Works great without the need to use the cable to the USB port. The only disappointment is that you need to remove the GPS for the pop-up flash to pop-up.

Truly recommend it

By

from New York, NY

The receiver looks like a small space starship once mounted on my Canon 5D Mark III. Works nicely and easily. Sometimes connecting to the GPS takes 2-3 minutes, but cannot indicate in which conditions it is much slower than the norm. Having pictures tagged with all coordinates is a very nice feature to have, primarily went in urban areas or in the wilderness. Actually, it is useful everywhere. Always travel with spare batteries just in case. Forgot to turn it off only the first time: lesson learnt.

Great product!

By

from Alberta, Canada  -  Power User

I highly useful product for travel photography, and features great integration with the 5D mark III - no external cables required. Very fast signal acquisition, and very accurate and reliable location tracking. A little on the pricey side, but significantly better than the similar offerings from Nikon and the multitude of no-name GPS products out there.

Excellent for GPS data and tracking

By

from Michigan  -  Professional

I have used this product in Europe and in the USA and it tags the raw files perfectly. It is relatively light weight and small and picks up signals very well, even in remote locations. Nice integration with Lightroom and great battery life. I like that is uses a AA battery, which I can pick up anywhere. I just wish the camera had this unit built into it, rather than being an expensive add-on!

works as advertised.

By

from Houston, TX  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Works as advertised. Seems to be accurate to within a few feet of my location and runs on only a single AA battery. It would have been nice if it were built in though. I'm not always willing to give up my hot shoe, which this unit requires and I've got enough gear to keep up with as it is.

Very accurate

By

from Undisclosed

Used in various places around the world. Match perfectly position as Google Earth, etc. As long in direct view of satellites extremely accurate. That.s not the case of cities where high buildings reduce the "access" to satellites signals resulting in some errors - applicable to any GPS receiver anyhow. Very satisfied about it!
