The Blue2CAN Bluetooth Adapter from Red Hen Systems is designed to allow photographers to link a compatible Bluetooth GPS device to their Nikon or Fujifilm camera for the purposes of geotagging images at the time of exposure. Using a Bluetooth link to a GPS gives a user more room to move their receiver to a better location in order to get a stronger signal. The geospatial data collected in the form of latitude and longitude is automatically transmitted to the camera through the Blue2CAN adapter.
The Blue2CAN works with Nikon Digital SLR cameras equipped with a 10-pin connector (Nikon D2-series, D3-series, D200, D300) and is also compatible with the Fujifilm S5 Pro and IS Pro. In order to receive GPS signals, a compatible Bluetooth GPS receiver or datalogger will need to be purchased separately.
Note: Blue2CAN will not work with GPS receivers that require the input of a PIN code for pairing
