    Identify memory card contents and select groups of images to download to a PC
  • Geo-Tagging: Automatic GPS geo-tagging of JPEG and raw files as they are downloaded.
    Simply connect a GPS tracker device such as the Sony GPS-CS1 GPS Tracker to the computer using a USB cable and Downloader Pro will automatically read the GPS data and store it in the images as they are downloaded
