Nikon announces D7200 – Unleashed Dx000 adds GPS

Posted on March 4th, 2015 by Oliver Perialis

Nikon is on a roll! Just weeks after the D5500 and D810A, Nikon just announced the D7200 – the successor to the D7100. Little seems to have been changed from the D7100 (read here and here), but this can also bring advantages: Our Unleashed Dx000 will fit, just like it did on the D7100!

Nikon D5500 – no more integrated GPS

Posted on January 16th, 2015 by Oliver Perialis

So, just in time for CES, Nikon announced the D5500, successor to the D5300. The D5300 was Nikon’s only DSLR that had GPS built-in. Its successor, however, no longer does. It seems the function was either not popular enough, or did not work as well as it was supposed to. My guess/experience: Both! (The worst was the battery drain). As usual, you can read the details on or

At CES, I went over to the Nikon booth, to test our Unleashed on the D5500 there. Luckily, one of the guys there was curious enough himself to let me test it – even though they were just prototypes, and he wasn’t supposed to let me.

  • The good news: the Unleashed Dx000 works on the D5500 (see the GPS Satellite icon)

  • The bad news: I was unable to properly test how well it fits the D5500, but can tell you it’ll be tight!

    It would have been necessary to remove the rubber flap to insert the Unleashed Dx000 completeley, and of course was not going to do that on Nikon’s prototype. The socket is a little more recessed than on other cameras, so I cannot yet promise that the Unleashed can be plugged in all the way, and therefore get enough contact to work properly. I will update this post when I know more – if you’ve tested it, let us know in the comments!

Having just arrived in Berlin, we had to leave again, and started off the year as usual: with a trip to Las Vegas, to exhibit at CES2015! It was a great show, as the German Pavilion we were part of was located in South Hall 2 – a much better spot than the LVH where we were last year.


Thanks to everyone that came by!

New Year, new City: Berlin!

Posted on January 4th, 2015 by Oliver Perialis

Happy new year from our new home: Germany’s capital, Berlin!

We moved here at the end of last year and have officially resumed business here on 1/1/2015. Our new contact details can be found under Contact.

Preparing the move, and settling in in Berlin has been very time-consuming and we have been out of the office a lot – please forgive us if you were unable to reach us, or if we might have taken a little longer to answer an email. We will still be difficult to reach via phone in the next few weeks, please write us an email instead if possible.

Berlin will mean expansion for foolography – we will be adding new members to our team and are looking forward to all the opportunities this city has for startups and small companies like foolography!

Bad Elf GPS Pro/Pro+ a perfect partner for the Unleashed

Posted on September 16th, 2014 by Oliver Perialis

We’ve partnered with Bad Elf to bring you a GPS thats worthy of pairing with our Unleashed!

The GPS Pro and the brand new GPS Pro+ were already great before we got in contact with Bad Elf – they’re MFI compatible, have a display for seeing all the details of your GPS status, they have excellent battery life, and up to 10Hz logging. The GPS Pro+ even supports Glonass as well as GPS, and tops it all off with a barometric altitude sensor. But the best is that we worked together with Bad Elf, to bring excellent new features to the GPS Pro/Pro+ when it’s paired with our Unleashed(s):

  • You can use multiple Unleasheds with a single GPS Pro/Pro+ simultaneously, and/or iOS and Android devices too. up to 5 simultaneous connections are supported!
  • When an Unleashed (or more) is connected, you can use the GPS Pro’s physical buttons to remotely trigger your camera(s) via Bluetooth! – So the GPS Pro is not only a great GPS source for the Unleashed, it’s also a Bluetooth remote!

D750 announced – Unleashed Dx000 adds GPS [updated]

Posted on September 15th, 2014 by Oliver Perialis

Just ahead of photokina, Nikon released yet another FX DSLR. Placed somewhere between the D610 and the D810, the new D750 adds a few extras: built-in wifi, a tilting screen, and a slimmer than usual body.

What they didn’t add is built-in GPS! Thankfully we have a solution for that, and our Unleashed Dx000 is compatible. I will personally go and test it at photokina when I find the time.

One last thing: just like with the D600/D610/Df, the rubber flap covering must be completely removed for the Unleashed Dx000 to fit. There’s an almost almost completely reversible method described here.

[Update 2014-09-25] I got a chance to visit the Nikon Booth at photokina, and test the Unleashed Dx000 on the D750. It works very well, as expected, and easily fits under the eyelet for the camera Strap.

However, this eyelet will block the remote release socket on the top of the Unleashed Dx000. This is needed for pairing (only once), so you’ll need to run the pairing routine on another camera, or purchase a pre-paired bundle.

It is possible to use the Unleashed without removing the rubber flap, but I would recommend removing it. The flap pushes against the Unleashed quite strongly, and could eventually push it out.

Nikon D810 – Unleashed D200+ compatible (with D800 modification)

Posted on July 9th, 2014 by Oliver Perialis

Just a few days ago, Nikon released the D810, a successor to the D800/D800E. The changes include tweaks to make full use of the high resolution, expanding ISO range (both ways) and adding a few video features. As usual, I advise you read the details on or


Externally, little has changed, which means that The Unleashed D200+ with the D800 modification will fit the D810 as well, and will work just the same as on the other Nikon DSLRs. The only change I know of concerning GPS functionality is that the top LCD (and likely the Info screen on the main LCD) now features an image of a Satellite instead of the typical [GPS] icon:

D810 Top LCD new GPS icon
D810 Top LCD new GPS icon
D800 Top LCD old GPS icon
D800 Top LCD old GPS icon

We’ve already seen this change on a few other new Nikon DSLRs, for example the D5300 and Df.
