Slightly round-about, I take a Garmin GPSmap 60 CSx round always (it is
clipped to my belt) and I use GeoSetter to tag the photos after the
event. It relies on the camera time being reasonably accurate, so I
usually take a photo of the GPS once per day to be able to offset the
camera time in GeoSetter. The SmartPhone and the iPad usually don't
require this as they have GPS built-in, as does my newer bridge camera.
I would rather not have a bulk add-on to the D300 (or in my case, the
compact D5200).
