But if the hardware is already there, no harm in putting it to good use.

Good point. That's true if the GPS is already there.


Well, you need GPS. And then you need electronic compas, electronic level and most important of all: An image stabilization system which can rotate the sensor instead of only shifting it.

A77 and A99 and many other Sony cameras already have GPS.  They also have electronic levels.  The electronic compass is either already implemented but not really referred to much or wouldn't be much effort to add in.

The big one, which I mentioned as well, is an image stabilization system that moves across more than two axis.  At minimum a three axis system is needed, but a five axis system would be even better.  Seeing as what Sony and Olympus have together now, it wouldn't be too unrealistic to see an improved image stabilization system in the next gen cameras.

So really, when you think about it, the only thing we would need to make this work is the improved image stabilization system.  The rest of the needed technology is something Sony has already implemented in many of their cameras.
