The new gps4cam application allows iPhone users to geotag pictures taken with any digital camera. Photographers wishing to use it will need to install both the iPhone and the Mac/PC versions. The app doesn’t need to connect to a network to be used, and doesn’t require the user to manually synchronise the time and date between his iPhone and his camera, thanks to the use of a QR-Code generated by the app itself. gps4cam for iPhone is for sale in Apple’s App Store for $1.99, whereas the desktop (Mac/PC) version is free.
