The compact and lightweight Jobo’s PhotoGPS grabs GPS data such as country, city, street and point of interest, whenever your digital camera takes a picture. It unique design fits directly on your camera’s flash mount, and the physical locations of the shots taken are determined later with bundle software. The application used to work for Windows XP and Vista only, but now the company has made it available for Mac users.

The geo-tagging device consumes little power and reserves it energy thanks to a self-awake smart design that’s sensing the signal from camera flash shoe, in real time, and the battery can be charged via an USB interface.

The JOBO photoGPS is available now for both Windows and Mac operating systems with a suggested retail price of $159. Optional Hot shoe adapter for Sony cameras is $49.90.
