Re: There is no value for geotagging - not.
In reply to sunhorse, May 7, 2010

I agree with the comment that each photographer has his/her own needs and need not ridicule another because those needs differ. I need geotagging. A prime example is when I do fall color photography in Michigan or Minnesota or even Colorado, I will drive over miles of forest service roads looking for images. When I find one I will photograph it and then move on. In a morning I may cover 50 miles of dirt roads with no significant markings and no landmarks other than more trees. There is no way I could remember precisely where I was when I took an image if I waited to get back to the hotel or back home. And when the color and aesthetics of trees dictates your images, no amount of pre-planning or map reading can tell you precisely where to go. So, for me, I need that location captured electronically and in the background so I don't have to worry about it, yet can go back five years later and still find where I was.
