Geotagging with the use of GPS and your digital camera is a pretty amazing new way to take travel and location photography to a new level. You can now actually shoot various pictures on vacation, for instance, and then view all pictures according to a Google map or integrated into Flickr geotagging for sharing with friends. Most geotagging GPS units for digital cameras are in the $75-125 range, so it's an inexpensive camera accessory. Here are the best geotagging GPS units for digital cameras.
This geotagging GPS unit is compact - three inches long and weighing two ounces - and it provides a great way to track locations while shooting. This particular camera GPS unit has some wonderful features packed into its tiny size, from RAW image processing and tagging to direct integration with the popular geotagging on the Flickr photo sharing site. The included software integrates your geotagged photos with Google mapping. Slick and impressive.
This is an ideal geotagging GPS unit for personal use to create a photo journal of a special trip like a honeymoon or a dream family vacation. For one thing, this is less expensive than the short list of other geotagging GPS units for cameras now on the market. It also is more geared toward trip journaling, which makes it nicer for personal travel photography. The unit automatically records the time and location intermittently throughout your trip, and it automatically synchs with times on your camera to map images. You can also add text for further trip journaling, and display your trips with photos on Google Earth or Microsoft Streets & Trips.
This is a handy geotagging GPS unit that has some cool and interesting features. You can synchronize it with your camera, and then activate it as you shoot. Then simply put your memory card (although it must be SD, MMC or Memory Stick) and it geotags your images. You can also use the photos in a compatible GPS unit to visually choose destinations.
This is a newer and cheaper version of the PhotoTrackr Pro that is perfectly suitable for personal use to capture a vacation and to later share online with family and friends.

The PhotoTrackr Lite supports FlickrM, locr, Smugmug, and Picasa Web Album for easy online photo sharing.
