GPS 4 Cam ScreenshotApple iPhone users can tag their photos with GPS location using the gps4cam application. This applies not just to iPhone photos but photographs taken from any digital camera. The iPhone GPS is used to provide location data at a customizable interval whicha is encoded in  a special QR code shown on the iPhone. Accompanying PC or Mac software decodes the QR code and applies location data to all the photos from the trip.

This lets you add this functionality to your existing iPhone rather than buy a dedicated device which you must carry and charge separately from your iPhone. The gps4cam software support less precises economic mode to avoid running down your iPhone battery on longer trips.

The gps4cam iPhone application is available for $1.99 USD from the Apple App Store.

This is the new flagship DSLR that takes the already excellent K-7 and replaces its sensor with an all new 16 megapixels one capable of reaching ISO 51,200, shooting continuously at 7 FPS and recording full 1080p HD video with stereo sound.

Neocamera recently published a detailed review of the Fuji Finepix F300 EXR. This is Fuji’s advanced compact camera and features a unique second-generation EXR sensor with a hybrid autofocus system. The new hybrid autofocus lets the camera use Phase-Detection autofocus, the same system used by DSLR cameras which are often favored for their fast autofocus speeds. This sensor also keeps all the properties of the original EXR sensor which means its triple-mode functionality which lets it optimize image capture for resolution, dynamic-range or noise.

The compact Fuji F300 EXR packs an incredible 15X optical zoom lens which starts at an ultra-wide 24mm equivalent focal-length and reaches all the way to 360mm in a 1.3″ thick body using a double sliding-lens design. Naturally, this lens is equipped with an effective stabilization system. Plenty of advanced features including full manual-controls, custom white-balance, control over dynamic-range and 720p HD video recording round off this impressive camera. Read the review to find out all about it.
