Leica Camera integrates u-blox GPS into its premium M-System series

Swiss-based u-blox, a global leader in wireless and positioning modules and integrated circuits, has been chosen by Leica Camera as provider of GPS technology for its premium M-System camera and accessory series.

The eminent provider of high-end and professional cameras has integrated u-blox’ NEO GPS module into its new feature-rich handgrip, the Multifunctional Handgrip M. The geotagging feature injects location data directly into each photo’s Exif header (Exchangeable image file format), allowing photos to be filed and retrieved according to where they were taken. The accessory is compatible with the new flagship Leica-M rangefinder digital camera series.
