If you take a lot of pictures (or you’re gettin’ old and your memory just doesn’t work like it used to), it can be difficult to remember where all of your photos were taken. This is where the Sony GPS-CS1 comes into play because it does all of the work for you.
The GPS unit records the date, time, and location and makes a log of this information every 15 seconds. To make it even easier on you, it comes with Sony’s Picture Motion Browser Software that matches the dates on the photos with the information off of the GPS unit. You really can’t get any easier than that.Another feature allows you to tag your images on a Google map so that you can keep track of where your photos were taken visually.
As mentioned, it will record your location in a log every 15 seconds, and can hold 360 hours of data. If you’re using AA alkaline batteries the device will give you 10 hours of continuous use, or 14 hours of use with Ni-MH batteries. It easily connects to your computer via USB 2.0.
One important thing to keep in mind is that you’d need to make sure that the date on your camera is correct so that the software is able to match the photos by date with the information that it logged from the GPS unit.
So, if you’re memory just isn’t what it used to be, or you go camera crazy and snap photos all too often, the Sony GPS-CS1 just might be worth the $149!
