All flagship and semi-pro Nikon cameras since the D1X and D200, mid range models since the D90 and “Baby-Nikons” since the D3100 are capable of automatically recording geo-referenced meta-data into image headers (Exif), a practice popularly known as “geo-tagging”.

I thought it could not get any worse after testing Capture NX2 and View NX1.5 a while ago, but I was wrong. NX2 is worse, at least from where I am standing. So much worse that I have not been able to thoroughly test it, not on Windows XP Pro x64 nor on a "standard" XP Pro 32 system.
It takes a while to get the hang of it, but once you do, geo-tagging is big fun. It only takes a compatible Nikon camera and a relatively cheap device to all of a sudden find yourself and your images totally Googlearthed.
With 2010 recently started, and many of us awaiting at least one important Nikon launch this year, I’m looking back on a decade that has seen jaw-dropping advancements in photography hardware.
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".
