Any of you know of a camera that will stamp photos or video with gps locations at the same time?

Wow, I'm so behind the times already. Had no idea one was available let alone a whole mess of them. Thanks.

Sure. You can also go the other route and look for a GPS with a built-in camera, like these Garmin units.

I have a Panasonic Lumix TS4 I use for pics while trail riding and dual sport riding. It has a built in GPS and takes decent pictures. I originally had a TS3 and I broke the glass on the screen in a fall on the trail. I sent it in to be repaired and they upgraded me for free to the TS4 which works better than the old TS3 in low light. There are newer ones available now which are sure to be faster. It is pretty fun to take pictures in the pool too!

They were selling several of the hardened point and shoots at Costco including the Olympus, the Nikon, and the Panasonic.

I have a Canon SD 100. It takes beautiful pictures and will GPS stamp them. The problem with the gps feature is it eats up the battery. You want to only turn it on when you take a picture you want marked with the gps.

One thing to keep in mind is that a camera with gps will take better pictures than a gps with a camera. The gps will do more things for location. Decide what you want most and buy the product for that.

I have a Galaxy S3 now but IDK if I'll stay that route. Need to finish a power source for it so I can give it a real try out.

I prefer my G11 only I know where it's at
But really, you can take good photos with a phone in a pinch and the damn things track your every move!
A lot of these phones take decent pics.

There are quite a few GPS enabled cameras, however keep in mind that you do not need a GPS enabled camera to Geo-tag a photo.

There are a few mapping packages with options that allow you to attach a photo to a map based on downloading the track points and knowing the time.

The one I use is by Igage, using USGS topographic maps in All Topo Maps V7 Pro. I can also use these topo maps in my Garmin Montana 600, but although these maps are not routeable, I did also not not need to shell out a lot of $$$ get the Garmin versions of the 6 complete states that I already have.

The Igage site also has a good video of how to Geo-tag photos using their product, but it is more than likely this same technique could be used in other mapping applications (like Basecamp, but I have not had the time to play with it).

Hundreds of them...

Any smartphone saves the location and stores it in the photo metadata if you have it set to store the location. Android and iPhone both have a setting to do that. For a device that does both pictures and location, a good smartphone will be the best combo, but won't do either function as well as the devices individually.

If you upload the pictures online to say... Google+, it saves the location data and displays the GPS coordinates. Services like Facebook used to, but stopped a long time ago. (Safety concerns with people being stalked by their posts and considerable accuracy of location) The original pictures on your phone still have the metadata with the location saved.

You know how to pull the gps data up if switched on and it doesn't show? I use 3 different hosting sites at the moment, don't see the data yet.
