Dissappointed about the lack of GPS in EOS 70D - who feels the same?
9 months ago

What a list of awesome features the EOS 70D has - but GPS is not among them! I am a bit dissappointed as I hoped that , after its incorporation in the EOS 6D, it would be incoporated in all future Canon DSLRs - at least in the middle and upper class models.

I think it is an incredibly useful feature as I often forget where I took each shot. GPS would make labelling the pictures so much easier.

True, you can use an add-on GPS unit or your mobile phone (if you get one of the newer stmartphones models, which I do not desire), but this means another device while walking and trekking, with additional bulk and weight.

It also means you cannot use the inbuildt flash or an external one for fill.

Who is also dissappointed about the lack of inbuildt GPS in the EOS 70d?
