Default Miniature Bluetooth Transmitter Plugs Into Nikon DSLRs for Easy Geotagging

http://www.photographyblog.com/news...om_foolography/

"Wiesbaden-based Foolography has released new GPS modules for the Nikon D3100, D5000, D7000 and D90, which enable these cameras to include location data captured by any Bluetooth GPS receiver in the EXIF."

Well this is a clever little device! Every other GPS solution I've seen has been bulky and ugly, but this looks like it's small enough to not get in the way - but remember that you'll still need to have a Bluetooth GPS to go along with it; I mistakenly thought this was an entire GPS unit unto itself at first, but it's a slightly less interesting product. 125.21€ is the price tag, which seems expensive for a Bluetooth receiver, and it looks like it's only available in Europe. While this looks like a decent solution, I'm really surprised that neither the Nikon D3100 nor the D7000 have a built-in GPS. It seems like a no-brainer at this point, but Nikon obviously doesn't agree, so devices like this are necessary.
