With the launch of Nikon's new flagship D4 and the rumored specs of the upcoming D800 – supposedly to be launched in February – it's a good time to try and take a look at what may be on their (marketing) mind.
Today, Nikon launched their long awaited D3000 entry level and D300s semi professional cameras. I resume the specs of both cameras, as taken from their respective US product brochures.
Professional and semi-professional* Nikon cameras with a 10-pin remote terminal are capable of automatically writing geo-referential meta-data in image headers (Exif), popularly known as "geo-tagging”. When a device records georeferential meta-data in real-time, as is the case here, we refer to it as "instantaneous geo-tagging".
