1.0 out of 5 stars
Still not good, 24 May 2012
It amazes me that, years after the first Photo GPS, Jobo haven't found the time to fix the very real problems affecting the device: sloppy, loose connectors, which allow the unit to fall off the camera and the primitive software.
I used gaffer tape on the Photo GPS and my Canon EOS 5dII camera but, eventually, I gave in and used glue to fix permanently the hotshoe attachment to the GPS unit. I also put some insulating tape on the hotshoe itself, without interfering with the contact between the camera and the GPS unit. It works, but it's a kludge - it beggars belief that Jobo couldn't come up with a semi-decent solution by now! I am thinking of getting the latest version, as I need space for more than 1000 shots, but I am hesitating, before spending good money for a unit which I will have to modify before it's usable. The trouble is that there is nothing else on the market, really, as Canon have come up with a solution for the EOS 5dIII, but it's not backwards compatible with the 5dII. One would think that, with the quantity of developers, somebody would have come up with a better product by now for this niche, instead of everybody copying the same mediocre consumer electronic devices which they can't sell.
