Fujifilm F550EXR does GPS geotagging


FUJIFILM announced an addition to the FinePix F-Series lineup: the FinePix F550EXR. This is a compact digital camera with a new 16MP EXR-CMOS sensor, FUJINON 15x super Wide-Angle lens (24-360mm equivalent) and 3.0” with 160° viewing, high speed shooting capabilities, full HD movie capture at 1080p, and finally new GPS Geo-Tagging.

We don’t have too much expertise in digital imaging so we’ll leave that to the pros, but as far as the GPS capabilities for F550EXR you’re looking at a local database of place names stored on the device so it can tag your photos with names by matching it with your location. It also obviously stores latitude and longitude and can overlay your photos on a map with the included software.

Fujifilm F550EXR knows about half a million points of interests around the world by name. The Photobook Assist feature will let you create a book of places you’ve visited where you can turn the pages using the screen on the camera.

In addition, if you take a picture and don’t remember where you took it you can have the F550EXR guide you back to it. It can show you which direction to walk and how far you’re from it. F550 EXR’s GPS Tracking Data function stores location data at regular intervals and when you’re in front of your PC this information can be turned into a map illustrated with the pictures you took along the way.

The FinePix F550EXR will be available in mid-March 2011 for $350.
