We haven’t heard much about Jobo’s Photo GPS camera add-on since it was announced around the time of last year’s PMA show, and it now looks like that’s been for good reason, as the company’s apparently decided to have another go at this whole “product launch” thing at this year’s PMA. From the looks of it, however, not much has changed with the device itself in the ensuing months, with it still promising to attach to your camera’s flash hot shoe and record GPS information as you shoot, and squeeze all that data into your images’ EXIF metadata (or XML file in the case of RAW images) when you sync it up.
It will, however, hold plenty of photos — available in 40, 80, and 120GB versions for â‚¬249, â‚¬299, and â‚¬379, respectively (or about $330, $390, and $500). Taking a cue from some earlier, less discreet devices, the photoGPS promises to let you tag all your photos with GPS data as you take ‘em, conveniently adding the location information to the photo’s EXIF file. From the sound of it, the device (pictured after the break) will also apparently work with any digital camera, although that’ll undoubtedly be cleared up meanwhile.
Assuming things don’t change any further, you can now apparently look for the unit to hit “mid-year,” when it’ll set you back $159.
