No GPS in A77 II. No GPS via NFC. Skipping this camera.
In reply to maikin, 2 months ago

I doubt using phone's GPS capability via NFC pairing is at all technically feasible unless you are willing to pair every time you turn on the camera.

In theory I think there are possibly other ways of employing phone GPS for geotaging. Maybe an app that saves phone's GPS data every few seconds and then a desktop app injecting that data into photos in a batch. In practice someone has to write these apps.

Overall it's a huge dissapointment that GPS is excluded from A77 II. Like many others it's a must have feature for me, so I most likely will skip this camera.
