Geotagger

Hello all,

I was just wondering if there were any geotaggers available for the Fuji X cameras? Something like the Solmeta is what I’m looking for. Or if there is a way to connect my camera to my BadElf GPS.

I know that I can connect the camera to my phone; but that has been spotty at best. Plus it doesn’t have the reliability of something like the Solmeta that I have on my Nikon.

Thanks in advance!

Interesting question as that is the main feature I miss on my Fuji X cameras over my Canon 7D which I used with a Canon GP-E2 geotagger. As far as I know there is no comparable device for the X-series. I tried the Fuji App but it is flaky at best so is not really an option for me. So what I do is use my iPhone with an App called Geotag Photos 2 which creates a GPX route of my journey and then you can use something like Lightroom to link the two together and it then places the geo data in the Metadata. I have the App set to record with a minimal position change of 10 yards which works well for me. It's obviously more of a hassle than having a dedicated geotagger but it works for me. And although it is running continuously (as it records the route) it doesn't use a huge amount of battery. I carry a small power-bank but have never needed to use it whilst using this App.

Hope this helps!

    • Is it possible to switch from manual focus to AFC while recording movies (without stopping recording). I could do this on the XT-4 but can't find a way on the H2S.    Thank you
    • If it may be a little cheaper I would recommend the KIPON Tilt & Shift Adapter for Fujifilm X-Mount. It is available for about 300 euros to buy. Then you only need one lens for FX sensors. You can then waste the remaining 14300 euros on something else...
    • The only ways I can get the camera to show the "storing" message while it writes is to set either Clarity or HDR - neither of which can be selected in full auto mode. Even a very slow card does not show that message. I'm out of ideas. Perhaps you could post a link to a file when this occurs (straight out of camera) so that we can see all of your settings.
    • Welcome to our forum. I've copied your corrected post into the opening comment.
    • Maybe it will be more useful for Fujifilm to provide us (GFX users) with a  suitable tilt and shit wide angle lens  which is badly needed for architectural and landscape photography. I had spent over 15,000 Eur  in the system back in 2019 and that includes only the GFX 50s  as a camera body.. The rest of the money was spent on lenses, handgrip and tilting viewfinder which  has just stopped working..  It is only fair that Fuji take care of its clients especially after making a decision to switch camera systems from one brand to another. I have been taking my aging 50 s  even to cover yacht racing, although the focus system and frame progression is a huge disssappointment to say the least. as it takes a huge amount of time. I am a semi-professional and not a full time photographer, mostly engaged in art exhibitions and investment (especially at this day and age)  requires sacrifice... I expect that the system is given proper attention, now that it has lured users and clients to it! I am at the point of buying a second body, a decision which I m still considering or changing back again to full frame... as since then both canon and nikon have come up with workable solutions...
