Just checked. the Cybershot HX400V contains both GBS and Wi Fi, so....... That's a $400 camera.

You want to know what else is easily possible and affordable when Sony chooses to offer it?

In addition to the A55v and A77v, I have the HX5v and HX9v pocket cameras. The GPS implementation in those models actually surpasses what's found in the SLTs because those little cameras also contain additional capabilities (an adjustable compass in the HX5v, some other thing in the HX9v) so that directional data is recorded along with GPS data. Combining the recorded location, direction, and focal length data stored in EXIF with these two cameras, I have software that will show not only where a shot was taken, but also where the camera was pointed, and a projecting triangle representing the recorded field of view. Yet somehow, Sony didn't fit that feature into the SLTs.
