nice:)In modern Nikon digital SLRs, there's no GPS built-in, but the cameras do have a connector that allows one to be externally plugged in so that the GPS location data can be recorded with each image taken. Apparently some people think it's a great idea. I'm not completely sure why.

That image you posted is the camera I use, a Nikon D2H - great camera, but definitely not a point-and-shoot that will fit in your pocket - you have to really WANT to carry that thing around. The thing on the bottom is the wireless adapter so that shots taken are sent wirelessly via 802.11b directly to a computer within range, instead of being stored on a CF card in the camera.

I do have some space at pbase, if that's the one you're talking about.

All valid equipment to be installed on a Camera:confused: ............ No wonder you take such good pictures, you have to carry a suitcase to take them.;)

No wonder you take such good pictures, you have to carry a suitcase to take them.;)I don't have the wireless stuff - the two groups of photographers that use that are studio photographers, who send the images directly to their laptops for immediate full-size viewing, and sports journalists who take thousands of images for a game. Sports Illustrated, for example has about 10 or 12 photographers at any given Super Bowl, and they have a half-dozen runners who do nothing but run around picking up Compact Flash cards to take back to the van where they're reviewing all of them. They'll take over 16,000 4 megapixel images during the course of the game. With the wireless stuff, the images can get sent to the van immediately. It's cools stuff, but pretty esoteric and beyond my needs.
