Canon announces GP-E1 with the EOS 1D X

So Canon has finally jumped on the bandwagon!

Canon has just announced their new flagship DSLR, the EOS 1D X And the big news is that they have finally decided to add two (or rather one and a half) GPS accessories to their product lineup along with it: the GP-E1 and the WFT-E6A:

The GP-E1 is a dedicated GPS Unit, and the WFT-E6 is a wireless file transmitter. However, it seems Canon liked our Idea with the Bluetooth GPS connectivity, and so decided to add that functionality into the WFT-E6. Unfortunately, both devices are compatible only with the new EOS 1D X, and won’t work with previous generation cameras. Although much smaller than the WFT-E2, both these add-ons are still much bigger than our Unleashed. Oh, and the pricing is supposed to be $300 and $600 respectively, plus the $6800 for the camera you’ll need to be able to use those accessories ;-)

Who knows what we’ll be able to come up with!?
