Re: GPS tagging in China

There is a lot of speculation in this thread with unfounded facts so I'd like to offer my experience having just returned from 10 days photographing Shanghai with a Canon 6D. I left the GPS function running continuously, took 40 GB of pics and never had a single issue. All of the mapping worked flawlessly and has been read accurately by Lightroom, Flickr and 500px since my return to the Philippines.

Furthermore, my experience with Chinese immigration and customs was very positive, and quite free of any hassles. There was never even a second glance at my 6D, Fuji X-E1 or bag of lenses and equipment. Out in the city I never had anyone give me trouble or even really pay much attention.

Feel free to see the data and images all intact: and

If you have any questions I'm happy to help.
