Sony’s GPS-CS1 Device Will Geotag Your Pics

Sony’s announced the release of the GPS-CS1, a 3.5 inch long GPS device that will add geographic data to pictures taken with your Sony digicam. It will use the timestamp on your pictures, along with it’s own log of location recordings to apply latitude and longitude information to your pictures, once they’re offloaded to your PC and processed through the bundled GPS Image Tracker software. We imagine it to be important then for both internal clocks to be syncronised properly, less some potential hilarity ensue.

This is not the first instance of digital picture geotagging we’ve come across, though previous solutions were a little more ‘spensive. The GPS-CS1 will cost about $150, and be available next month.
