Ah Nick! Some of my best days involved me cycling in Cumbria. A quick train ride up from my native Bolton to Barrow in Furness or Windermere with the bike is more accessible than folk realise and it's a delightful way to spend a Saturday.

Hearty greetings from Vancouver!

Oh and I meant to say lovely picture but in the midst of enjoying my memory, I forgot. Lovely picture! Love the S.

Hi Nick, back to see more of your lake district photos. This one reminds me of Scotland. Very beautiful.

Are you using the Photofinder mini? Is it any good?

Greetings from Denmark, Allan Hansen.

LichtenHansen ~~ Hi Alan and vey good to see you again here ~ glad you like this shot too.

Now to answer your question ~ in a nut shell no ~ it sits in its box and that is where it is likely to stay! If I read the blurb on the box correctly you'd have to take some shots in a location, then take your memory card out of the camera and put it into the photofinder to upload the position ~ I'm certainly not going to mess about doing that every time.~ Also I had read of a previous winner who found the accurancy of the thing rather wild too. ~ Nikon have a much better system that just sits in the flash shoe and you link it up to the camera with a simple cable connector, but at £200.00 that can wait a while too. My mobile tells me where I am with its GPS if I can be bothered. Uusually I find my memory and GE are quite sufficient to plot Pano/GE shots. It was simply the winning that turned me on, not the prizes. How about you have you received your's yet ~ I would guess that you should soon :) All the best to you Alan ~~ ciao nick

Hi Nick, I just got it. I have no plans of letting the photofinder modifying my photos, but I'll try to use the log on my PC and let "ExifTool by Phil Harvey" do the geotagging.

I've read a few reviews - and they are not too good. The log should be fine - the built-in logic for geotagging the photos should be bad, and not work at all with my Canon 1DM3.

If it is anny good I'll keep it.

Very relaxing picture... though it looks like freezing. This morning down here in south Brazil is 1,5°C.... and the wind cuts you up!!!!!!

And LichtenHansen, how about this photofinder..? I know you won one as a prize (well deserved by the way)... Does it work now? I thought the system was different (not putting/taking the memory card for every photo), I thought it syncronizes the camera time and the photofinder time, then you could have accuracity... Well, let me know whether it works or not...

Regars for both Nick and LichtenHansen

Mica Chemello ~ Yes it was below freezing and this pass had been closed the night before by too much ice and snow ~ It sounds a bit cold down by you at the moment too Mica !!! Brrr

I can't tell you a thing about the Photo~finder I'm sorry to say ~ it sits in its box somewhere and I'm not even sure where it is! As soon as I read that I would have to take my card out of the Camera ~ that was it ~ I'm not farting about doing that ~ So I'm an ungrateful winner of the prize ~ by extremely proud and happy to have won and that is all I wanted anyway ~ the prize was neither here or there. Nikon do a proper geo~locator that you can attach to the flash shoe and connect to the camera ~ but frankly I have a pretty good memory and can plot on GE more or less exactly where I was positioned for each shot and I do take care to do that. I can see that in the wilds it could be useful, but then my phone has GPS anyway! Maybe Alan has played with his by now ~ ciao nick

Mica Chemello on June 3, 2009

Nick, just to make things clear, did you win a contest? Show me where it is, please!! (Now that we can´t see the tags anymore....)

Nick Weall on June 3, 2009

Mica Chemello ~ Yes I won the December 08 Scenery first prize Mica ~ you can find them easily by going to the Pano blog ~ Ciao nick
