Gisteq introduces new PhotoTrackr GPS Photo Locator DPL700

Geotagging is one of the nicest developments in these modern internet powered times. Web2.0 application make it possible for people to communicate from one side to the other side of the world.
With a device of the PhotoTRackr GPS Photo Locator DPL700 is great to publish pictures on the Internet and see on a map the route on which these pictures have been taken. It works with websites like Flickr and Locr.

The DPL700 is not the first device that is pointed at this task. Sony did this before, but not for this nice price. The intention is to first synchronize your camera with an (atomic) satellite clock through the DPL700 Photo Locator and then hit the road and make pictures. Loads of great pictures (says the photographer in me)! ;-D
