I found a very tiny BlueTooth module, which you can directly plug into the body of the DSLR and use GPS BlueTooth capable module to get the GPS data directly to the camera.

From Aokatec.com I bought an AOK-4N BT adapter for Nikon. This is currently on sale in different webshops locally (older type) for just about 40 euros.

Smallish maybe - but I wouldn't exactly call that " very tiny". Should be possible to make a bluetooth adapter smaller than this since you find bluetooth built into some very small devices.

One thing I'm wondering is whether there is any external GPS unit that will give you compass bearing (i.e which direction the camera is pointing) as well as location?
