Re: Panasonic GH3 and G5 Coming-Great News-Still Need GPS!

Everyone has their own needs/opinions.  I like GPS in camera, and use it mainly for 2 reasons:

1.  When I travel it helps keep a record of where each picture was taken. No way can I remember all pictures taken in Madrid, for example, from those in Barcelona except for the obvious landmark images.

2.  It is really handy for when I go birding with my wife.  It allows me to catalog after the shoot where each bird picture was shot.  Again, on a 3 mile birding hike it helps to know the exact place you took a shot.  It allowed me, for example, to go back and find a Horned Owl that I took a week earlier.

If you don't like it, and your new camera has it, just leave it off.  Problem solved.
