Lower Prices + Bundles now available

For the new year, we were able to work out new conditions and to lower our prices.

The next batch of Unleasheds has been produced, production costs have slightly decreased, and we were thus able to reduce the final price. At the same time, we decided to offer two great new Holux GPS receivers bundled with the Unleashed, pre-paired for your convenience.

These are the Holux M-1000C or the tiny M-1200E. They are both based on the MTK MT3329 low power consumption GPS chipset, meaning great reception quality and very long battery life. Also, both include logging features for documenting travelling routes, or even for indirectly geotagging photos taken with your backup camera, that might not have an Unleashed.

The new prices are:

Unleashed:
199.00 €
167.23 € excl. VAT

Unleashed+M-1000C or Unleashed+M-1200E:
199.00+70.00=269.00 €
167.23+58.82=226.05 € excl. VAT

If the price was holding you back and you have not done so already, go get one in our online-shop.

If you’d prefer to buy the Unleashed from your local dealer or favorite online-retailer, tell them to contact us – we have great conditions for retailers and distributors, and are just setting up our worldwide distribution network. They can become a part of it.

D3/D700 Firmware update – set clock using GPS time!

Nikon just issued firmware updates for their D3 and D700 – these add a new cool GPS feature:

  • “Use GPS to set camera clock item has been added to the GPS item in the setup menu. When Yes is selected, date and time information acquired via connection to a GPS device is used to set the camera‚Äôs internal clock. After selecting Yes for the first time, turn the camera off and then on again to reacquire GPS data.”

Oddly, the updates for the D300s and D3X don’t include this new feature. – A quick check on the D300s showed that the feature was not already present, which was my first thought. The firmware update did not change anything either.

see all the details here or here.

I wonder if they thought of the 19 second offset between GPS Time and UTC? (read about it here)

Unleashing the Unleashed!

It seems almost unbelievable, but after a long time of preparations, and a lot of hurdles we had to overcome, we have finally reached the point where we can proudly announce the availability of the new Unleashed – our tiny wireless geotagging solution for Nikon D200 and up.

While we’re setting up world-wide distribution to bring the Unleashed to retailers near you, we’ve set up a small online-shop for your convenience in the meantime. You can find it here: www.foolography.com/shop

Since we have quite a few prospective customers waiting for the availability of the Unleashed, we are expecting to be out of stock fairly soon, so don’t hesitate. However, production for the next batch has already begun, and will be available shortly.

We’re very glad to have finally come to this point and we hope you’re as excited as we are. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact us.

We wish you a happy holiday season, possibly including a lot of fun with your new Unleashed!

Unleashed in final stages of production

It took much longer than expected, but after several delays due to problems with manufacturers and suppliers, our Unleashed, the long awaited wireless direct geotagging solution for Nikon DSLRs, is finally nearing the end of its production, and will be ready for sale in a few days.

Unleashed 4 Views

The first batch will probably be sold out very soon, as we have accumulated numerous requests via e-mail, but a page will be added to this website very soon, for everyone to order the Unleashed online.

The next, much larger production should take just a few weeks, now that all the initial hurdles have been overcome. Starting here in Germany, we are in the process of setting up worldwide distribution, so expect to find the Unleashed at your local photo dealer soon.

Nikon D5000

Nikon announced another new consumer DSLR, the D5000.

It fits somewhere in between the D60 and the D90, it’s a little bigger than the D60, but doesn’t have a built-in AF-motor. Instead it features a swiveling LCD display, Liveview, and 12.3 Megapixels and HD Movie recording. Anyway, read the details elsewhere.

But guess what – it supports direct geotagging! It has the same connector as the D90. So the Unleashed D90 that’s reaching its final stages of development, will work for the D5000 just as well.

Direct geotagging for the entire line-up of Nikon’s DSLRs by foolography coming soon, stay tuned for that.
