I happen to really like my SX50.  It does everything I need a camera to do.  I'm wondering if it has geotagging.  If it doesn't, what would be the best third party app to use.  I have a Mac computer Yosemite with Photos.  (Yes, I'm very frustrated with the whole program right now).  Any feedback would be appreciated.  Thank you.

Re: Geotagging?

Hi taj3349!


Thank you for posting about this.


The PowerShot SX50 HS does not have a built-in GPS, so it does not geotag images it records.  This also means there is no GPS coordinate data recorded with each image.  Any coordinate data you obtain would have to be recorded by a separate GPS you carry with you as you shoot.  It cannot be connected to the camera, so you would need to sort through that data later.  Although I cannot recommend any specific software that would allow you to geotag the images, I recommend that you search the internet for geotagging software using your favorite search engine.
