Canon GP-E1 overview

  • 1Description

The GP-E1 GPS Receiver from Canon is a convenient tool to enhance the organization of photos and recording of data for photographers constantly on the go. Used exclusively with the EOS-1D X, the GP-E1 is a compact and durable accessory that automatically appends accurate geographical coordinates and cardinal points as Exif data for both images and videos taken with the EOS-1D X.

Featuring accurate clock adjustments and synchronization, Canon designed the GP-E1 to share the same rugged and durable exterior construction as the EOS-1D X without adding any additional bulk. Incredibly lightweight, this receiver integrates seamlessly with the camera's extension system terminal, allowing the hot shoe to remain accessible--while still being powered by the main camera unit. Able to withstand harsh weather conditions, the GP-E1 is a great enhancement to the EOS-1D X for those who wish to take their EOS system out into even the most remote environments.

Rugged, compact, and designed to integrate seamlessly with the EOS-1D X's construction.
When in use, the GP-E1 Receiver will automatically record the geographical information (latitude, longitude, altitude, and cardinal direction) of videos and photos whether the camera is held vertically or horizontally. Detecting altitude is even possible from inside an airplane or helicopter.
Accurately adjusting the EOS-1D X's internal clock is easy because it can use the UTC (Universal Coordinated Time) transmitted from the GP-E1 with a margin of error of about 0.01 second.
The GP-E1 is designed to enhance the workflow of professional users by incorporating global information into an image or video's Exif data. For example, photojournalists and other users can utilize the GPS data to organize their stock photos by location.
Includes GPS Receiver Software, as well as Map Utility software that uses information recorded by receiver to show shooting location/direction on a virtual map. Additionally, ImageBrowser EX software, also bundled, updates Map Utility and makes managing and searching for images easy. It also displays shooting information.

Note:In certain countries and regions, the use of GPS may be restricted. Be sure to use GPS in accordance with the laws and regulations of your country or region. Be particularly careful when traveling outside your home country.

    Canon GP-E1 reviews

    GP-E1 GPS Receiver is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Massive Tool I Bought that Tool for landscape photography and it's really massive tool to save your coordinate position and compass way، also the time of updating position of camera also can be adjustable as each 1 second, 5 second, 10 second or more, all my images are conected in lightroom to aerial surface of google earth.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great GPS device I have been using the GP-E1 pretty much full-time since purchasing. I use Apple's Aperture programme and it seamlessly logs and displays the coordinates of my Raw files.It seems very accurate, to within a meter or so of my exact location. The only (minor) issue is that the compass is not fully functional with my 400mm f/2.8L IS. I've searched this issue on Google and others have also reported that there are some issues with the compass when using the 'older' superteles. This does not affect GPS accuracy at all, just the compass.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Addition to the 1D-X Installation was extremely simple - just attach, change settings in menu, calibrate compass, and you are ready to go (there is also an option to allow the device to update the clock automatically). Integrates into Lightroom Maps. I've used for about a month and see no change to the camera's battery life. Have been leaving the GPS attached since the camera still fits in my backpack.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effortless Geotagging After years of manually geotagging my photos I now have my 1D X photos automatically geotagged. Amazing to see an aerial view of my tagged photos which show exactly where and what time the shot was. I just leave the GP-E1 on my camera and don't even know it's there anymore (other than my photos are tagged). Very easy to use- just attach it, turn on GPS in the menu, and that's it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inconsistent I have had this device work very well. I've also had it be way off on shots by up to 6km, with no rhyme or reason as to what caused it to lose its position data (and then regain it just a few photos later). Since the GP-E1 only works on the 1DX body, the market for it is by definition pretty small, so the incentive for Canon to fix and improve the performance is not very compelling. It's a good step in the right direction and better than manually dropping shots onto a map, but still needs some work, maybe a firmware flash, to make it truly worthy of the body it connects to.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Eneough I glued the GPS to the camera a it's there all the time now. This streamlined my workflow as I don't need to geotag my photos with .gpx files anymore. The only issue is with camera (EOS 1D X) standby mode, because if you took a photo immediately after, the photo probably wouldn't be tagged.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! A unit that doesn't take up the hotshoe! I'm glad that this unit does not take up the hotshoe like the GPS unit for the 5D mark iii does. This is a hands-off solution. It just works. I love that it is powered the camera. Don't ask me why the pro-level cameras don't have built in GPS. I guess to get more money out of working professionals. HA.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FInally found myself I travel the world and wanted to have a method to identify where in the world the photo was taken. I think the GP-E1 will do that for me. I will know better in a few weeks. The compass / level funtionality helps me to confirm framing since I developed a verigo issue a couple years ago. All my photos were 15 degrees askew. I hope this will help me as one more check in the framing process of people, buildings, ruins and landscapes.
