    Opteka GPN-1: GPS for less., September 5, 2011

    This review is from: Opteka GPN-1 Geotag GPS & Shutter Release Cord for Nikon D3, D3S, D3X, D4, D700, D300, D300S, D2X, D2XS, D2HS, D200, D5000, D5100, D5200, D3100, D3200, D7000, D90 and D800 DSLR Cameras (Nikon GP-1 Replacement) (Electronics)

    After becoming accustomed to having GPS on my iPhone and my recently purchased Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 (which has been excellent), I wanted a GPS for geotagging with my Nikon d7000. I researched a number of methods, including Nikon’s version as well as the Eye-Fi SD card. The Eye-Fi cards are a very attractive idea but appeared to require a good bit of tinkering to accomplish geotagging. Also, the variety of cards and their respective capabilities are somewhat confusing. That said, and more to the point, The Opteka was the same price, or less, than some of the Eye-Fi cards and appeared to be more straightforward in some respects. It has worked exactly as advertised and is simple. I cannot vouch for the limited remote shutter release since I have not used it. Of note, with the GPS in place, the flash cannot be used. The geotagging was rapid and accurate. The Opteka GPN-1 is a nice addition to the Nikon d7000 if you want the capability to geotag your photos.

    This review is from: Opteka GPN-1 Geotag GPS & Shutter Release Cord for Nikon D3, D3S, D3X, D4, D700, D300, D300S, D2X, D2XS, D2HS, D200, D5000, D5100, D5200, D3100, D3200, D7000, D90 and D800 DSLR Cameras (Nikon GP-1 Replacement) (Electronics)

    I was skeptical of this unit because it was so much less expensive that competing products, but figured that it wouldn’t cost too much just to test it out. I was pleasantly surprised with the results.

    I used it on a two week shoot through Europe on a Nikon D3 and, for the most part, was quite pleased. It’s fairly quick at establishing its location (less than a minute when first powered up), and sometimes (not always) provided last known location data to the camera after entering a cathedral or other site with no GPS signal. As with most GPS units, you get better results the more open sky you have in view. It sometimes struggles to get a good signal in cities where you have lots of tall buildings obscuring much of the sky. I have not yet had the chance to test it in forested areas – another location type where traditional GPS units struggle.

    When using the Opteka GPN-1 on a Nikon D3, one can simply go into the camera’s GPS menu to see whether a GPS location is being provided to the camera by the unit. Often there was a location provided, even though the GPS unit itself was blinking (a solid light means it has a good signal, a blinking means it’s still looking).

    This GPS runs off of the camera’s battery, which I like because you don’t have to worry about replacing or recharging a separate GPS battery while traveling. The drain on the camera battery did not seem excessive though. I can normally shoot continuously for a full day or more on a single battery charge on my D3 (or for multiple days if not shooting constantly), and this didn’t seem to diminish much with the Opteka GPN-1 unit on full time.

    The accuracy of the unit was also consistently good. My first test of it was during a college soccer game. It accurately recorded my sideline positions on every shot when checked against Google Earth and Google Maps, easily recording my location within 20 feet.

    I’ve found this unit to be a very good value for the money.

    I did however, find the 10-pin cable connecting the Opteka to the camera to be difficult to secure to the camera itself. This may be as much a design flaw of Nikon as anything, and perhaps my fingers simply aren’t small enough to easily thread the cable end into the camera socket. Once I did get it secured, I didn’t want to have to do it again, so the unit has remained attached to the camera. This means I have to be careful when putting the camera back into the camera bag (or removing it) so that the GPS unit doesn’t snag on anything and damage its own plastic hot shoe connection or the hot shoe on the camera.

    Pros
    -fast start up time
    -accurate tagging
    -inexpensive (in comparison)

    Cons
    -drains battery from camera, making battery last 1/2 as many shots

    I wanted to buy a geo-tagging device to bring to Iceland since I can’t remember the names of places that I can barely pronounce.
    After some searching, this is one of the cheaper ones I found.
    At first, I was skeptical.
    After all the brand name one was running for $200.
    Still, I decided to give it a try.
    Turns out this was a great buy!
    I own a Nikon D5000 and it worked great with it.
    The tagging was spot on and the start up time is quite fast.
    The only ‘con’ about it is that it does not run on it’s own battery.
    Therefore, your camera’s battery would drain much quicker than what you’re used to.
    But since I always carry extra batteries, it was ok for me.
    Since I’ve never used the Nikon GPS, I can’t compare how much better the unit is.
    For the occasional user, this is a good bargain.
