OK.. so I have now played with a bunch of new softwear for geotagging images and I got to say Garmin's BaseCamp rocks. Rather than having to use several programs this allows you to do everything in one. It allows you to use the Garmin map or Google Earth and also allows you to pin your pics on either. You can save all your tracks, show them on any map and pin your pictures to any map. The other little thing I love as a wildlife photographer is that for each track saved it has a little text box for notes. Here I put in the date, the time I was out for, weather conditions and any other notes from my outing for the day reguarding wildlife encounters.
Canon 7D + 50D + EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM + EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM + EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM

I agree. Geotagging is really fantastic. I already have a gadget –Eztag GPS with my D5000. Took so many photos that with geo info inside. Cool! Web Application Mania

Isn't there an error in this "Offset by Lat/Long" method? If at the beginning of your photo shoot you take several pics over say 10 minutes at the same location, then how will the program know of which recorded track point (there might be several if the logger logs every x seconds) to use the time to calculate the offset?

Hi all, does anyone know of a way that I can use the GP-E2 to give me the GPS location, but with an offset... so not where the camera is but rather that of the subject being taken?
