  • Wireless Geotagging Module

The Foolography Unleashed Dx000 and Holux M-1200E Receiver Kit contains everything you need to geotag your photographs besides the camera itself.

The Unleashed Dx000 is a wireless Bluetooth module that allows you to geotag your photographs without the need to tether to GPS receivers. This compact, lightweight device sits directly on the camera and is easily configured to the Holux M-1200E GPS Logger. The module automatically receives the GPS data and embeds it into the image's metadata immediately; no additional steps are required at the computer.

The Unleashed Dx000 is compatible with Nikon D3100, D5000, D5100 and D7000 digital cameras. Also, it works with the Nikon D90 digital camera if turned upside-down.

The Holux M-1200E is a wireless GPS logger that easily and accurately logs tracks, distance, speed, and altitude. It automatically integrates geotagged photos with tracks to help build personalized digital photo albums. The M-1200E is very compact and lightweight, making it perfect for carrying in your pocket or bag while traveling. It also features an integrated GPS chipset that provides long battery life with low power consumption via a lithium-ion 550mAh battery. The 4MB of internal flash memory is capable of storing 200,000 data logs.

Note: The included ezTour software from Holux allows you to download and manage your tracks (Windows only). To download the tracks with a Mac you can use the freeware BT747. A detailed installation description can be found on the Foolography homepage.

        Comments about Foolography Unleashed Dx000 and Holux M-1200E Receiver Kit:

        I bought this to be used with my Nikon D7000. The product does what it states without issue. I did find that the LED on the device that connects to the camera (Dx000) was hard to know what was going on. I would suggest different LED colors (blue) to let one know it's working. Again, I like this solution better than the GP-1 since it does not need a cable or block the flash!

          Comments about Foolography Unleashed Dx000 and Holux M-1200E Receiver Kit:

          I bought this to pair with my new Nikon D7000 for recent holiday to the USA. Until digital SLR manufacturers wake up to themselves and include geotagging in their cameras — something that is otherwise ubiquitous in the digital camera market — third-party accessories like this will be a necessary evil.

          The Unleashed Dx000 is small and inconspicuous. The ridiculous design of the D7000 cover for the mini-USB port means I had to leave it open all the time. Best alternative seems to be to cut the cover, and I wasn't prepared to do that. Even with this slight impediment, the Dx000 isn't terribly bulky. It has an LED to indicate pairing with the GPS receiver. I found it wasn't always bright enough to clearly make out in bright sunlight, and the different flashing sequences sent me back to the instructions a few times to understand what they meant.

          Once connected to the GPS receiver, it will continue to send the last known position to the camera for up to 30 minutes. After that, it won't send any GPS data. (The manufacturers figure no information is better than wrong information. I disagree. I'd rather have a reference point starting in the same city or state, and move it if wrong, that starting from scratch, but that's just my preference.)

          It seems that after this half hour, the bluetooth connection drops as well, and must be re-established. (The Dx000 remains paired though.) The instructions recommend keeping the Dx000 close to the GPS receiver to do this, and preferably on the same side of the body. I found over several weeks that this resulted in pretty quick re-connection — the shortest time was around 3 - 5 seconds, which can be slow for a quick shot. If I didn't make this effort, it could take up to several minutes to reconnect, which seemed odd for a bluetooth device.

          The Holux receiver worked well. I found in New York, with lots of trips into the subway and re-appearing in concrete canyons, it would sometimes take quite a while to find a satellite signal. (In contrast, my iPhone app would find a GPS signal *much* faster.) When the device was searching frequently for satellites, it would use more battery power, and on some days I found the battery exhausted by late afternoon or early evening. (I expect this wouldn't be a problem generally, and didn't experience it in California.)

          I also tried using an iPhone app called Geotag Photos, which is touted as one alternative to this sort of kit. I found that Geotag Photos found GPS signals far easier, and kept them far better than this kit. So the record I have of my travel is more comprehensive in the data kept by this app. Data is synced to a supposedly secure website and then added to your photos using a web-based portal.

          BUT...when I downloaded the data and used that portal, I found it incorrectly wrote the GPS data in some instances, and — most unhelpfully — overwrote any data I had from the Holux. Maybe I didn't read the instructions right, but for me the result was terrible. I ended up deleting all my photos from iPhoto, then re-downloading them again from the camera with the Holux GPS data.

          I reckon the Dx000 and Holux is a much more elegant and user-friendly solution, especially if you want to just take photos with geotagging, instead of playing around with stuff on the computer. So long as you keep in mind some of the limitations of the setup, it is a good bit of kit.

            Comments about Foolography Unleashed Dx000 and Holux M-1200E Receiver Kit:

            Finally a geotagging solution for Nikon DSLRs that makes sense. NO cables, the postage stamp size Foolography Unleased Dx000 bluetooth receiver plugs directly into the Nikon while the Holux M-1200E sits in your pocket or your camera strap. The Holux receives satellite signals and beams the data to the Foolography which imprints the data with the picture. Doesn't interfere with flash and Works Great!!
