Howdy all.

I'm in the market for a dslr and between friendly advice and research, I've think the d80 is for me. The only feature I'd really like to have would be a GPS. I really like having my photos geo-tagged in flickr and having it done automatically would make my dreams come true!

I've seen some cases where people have rigged up a gpsto work with the camera, but I'm really curious to know if Nikon has any plans to release this as a feature.

I've hit the camera sites that I normally read for information and I've hit google to no avail. Being that I still consider myself to be a n00b, I figured I'd try to ask and see if anyone knows something that I can't find..or maybe even an idea of when the next release will be so I can make a decision on whether or notit's worth thewaitto see what comes out.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Bill

1- MC-35 GPS Adapter cord ($139) connects some cameras with a standard G.P.S. receiver (which you must also buy) to automatically save location coordinates with each photograph.

2- The Ricoh 500 se is "gps ready"

3- On that one, there is some automatic synchronisation between your pics data and the GPS data : http://www.dpreview.com/news/0608/06...sonygpscs1.asp

Good luck
