I'm very frustrated with gps and the canon 5DS. I cannot find a way to connect my canon GPS receiver except through the hot shoe port. I use this camera for aerial mapping and require the hot shoe port for another device, I have purchased the USB adapter cable to connect the camera to gps that way but when I do this it disables the interva timer!? Why would it do this? Any suggestions? I have also tried a TTL splitter, they don't work. I also have tried just logging with the gp-e2. This file is useless. When I import it into any program it says there is no time and date info on the gps file.
I don't know. The gps works when connected through USB port but it turns off the interval timer which I need for mapping. I have the cam ranger wifi adapter and have been using that in USB port to monitor and control interval timer from pilot seat. The hot shoe port I use to record when each trigger even occurs through a voltage pulse this is for my IMU data. So I have no other ports to geotag. I'm very annoyed that the canon Gps log feature doesn't allow me to geotagg the images after the flight. I sync the gps time with the canon camera before mapping also, I was hoping that would help in post processing but it doesn't.
Does anyone know if a USB splitter would work? Allowing me to connect camranger and gps through same port so I can use the camranger to monitor and control interval while still getting the camera to geotagg?
Thanks for the map utility geotagging suggestion. It works with 500 images at a time. Any more and the program crashes. Another problem though now I've come to see, the logging feature doesn't record altitude info, so none of the geotagged images have attitude information which almost makes it useless when using for aerial mapping applications. Can't wait until canon builds in gps in their high end cameras.
