Features:Featuring convenient, simple-to-use equatorial telescope functions, the O-GPS1 allows easy filing of recorded images using location data such as a shooting location and the camera's direction, and opens up new dimensions in digital photography.

Simply by mounting the O-GPS1 accessory GPS unit onto the hotshoe of a PENTAX digital SLR camera, you can record the latitude, longitude, altitude, universal time coordinated (UTC) and aspect of shooting locations onto captured images. Image files carrying GPS location data can be used to track shooting locations and review location data on a computer. The GPS location data stored on these files also makes it much easier to sort and file recorded images. By coupling GPS location data with the camera's SR (Shake Reduction) system, this GPS unit offers a range of innovative, PENTAX-original applications, including ASTROTRACER, Simple Navigation and Electronic Compass.

Three innovative features to complement standard GPS functions

ASTROTRACER

ASTROTRACER
PENTAX-original simplified equatorial telescope function using the camera's SR system

The O-GPS1 calculates the movement of celestial bodies using the latitude obtained from GPS location data and the camera's alignment data (horizontal and vertical inclinations) detected by the unit's magnetic and acceleration sensors. It then shifts the camera's image sensor in synchronization with the movement of the objects. This means that stars and other bodies are captured as solid points rather than blurry streaks, even during extended exposures.

Simple Navigation

Simple Navigation

This function linearly navigates you to a desired location by calculating the direction and distance from the current position to the destination.

Electronic Compass

Electronic Compass

This function accurately displays the camera's direction at the time of shooting on the camera's LCD monitor.
