About Pentax O-GPS1

The Pentax O-GPS1 GPS Unit is designed for use with Pentax digital SLR cameras. It not only provides basic location data, but also offers an array of original features that allow users to effortless track and record details of their favorite photographic locations. By simply mounting the O-GPS1 onto the hotshoe of a Pentax digital SLR camera users can record the latitude, longitude, altitude, universal time coordinated (UTC) and aspect of the location they are shooting directly onto each image they capture.

Image files carrying GPS location data, can then be used to track shooting locations and review location data on a PC. GPS location data stored on such files also makes it much easier to sort and file recorded images. By coupling GPS data with the camera's SR (Shake Reduction) system, the unit offers a range of unique, advanced applications, including ASTROTRACER, Simple Navigation and an Electronic Compass.
