Keep Track of Your Digital Nature Photography Locations with a GPS Cable
Digital nature photography has become more focused and more productive with GPS (global positioning system) technology. Now, satellites can send coordinates of subject locations to GPS receivers of photographers on the field. A GPS cable then connects the receiver to a computer to display or transfer the data. The information is so accurate that it enables a photographer to be within three meters of the subject; there's no time wasted finding one's way. GPS sensors can see and predict weather patterns as they develop, so you can ensure that the sun is shining and no rain obscures the view as you set up your shot.
Unique with Every Click
Nature is so wonderful that being able to stand before it at the right moment to capture its many faces is truly a gift. This gift used to happen by chance. Now, it is available by satellite delivery through GPS technology. As you stand there at the perfect time and location of your choice, every click of your digital camera captures a unique image. No two shots are the same. Only your keen sense of timing and composition dictates the visual storytelling.
Tracking your Subjects
Photographing nature used to be unpredictable, but GPS technology changed the picture completely, because now subjects can be located with pinpoint accuracy. If you're waiting for the first wave of birds migrating for winter, you'll know when, where, and what time you need to be in position to catch their majesty. If you're worried about an unfamiliar terrain, you'll find the most convenient routes to secluded yet enthralling locations. Perhaps the best thing about GPS is that it never sleeps. Twenty-four to thirty-two satellites at mid-level orbit above the earth tirelessly gather and deliver the information you need to take great shots. And the service is all for free.
How to Link to the Sky
The link between the satellite data and you is the GPS cable. The window that displays the information for you to see and share is the computer. Besides downloading or transferring maps and coordinates, GPS cables can provide power to your receiver from a power source in a car, plane, or boat. There are a number of GPS cables you can choose from, which can connect your Magellan, Garmin, TomTom, Mio, or Navigon GPS receivers to your PC or Mac. You simply attach them to your computer's serial or USB port. It uses a standard 9-pin connector and a cord that's about a meter long.
Eye to Eye
They say that to become a photographer, you have to have an eye for
the indescribable--and the unexpected. If you have the passion to see
symbols and meanings in the outside world through the lens of your
digital camera, nature is full of treasures to keep you wide-eyed. And
as you search for the most compelling and transforming images, GPS is
your eye in the sky to guide you in finding the best nature has to
