Canon GP-E2 – GPS Receiver

Canon GP-E2 GPS Receiver for EOS 1DX, 5D Mk III, 7D needs Firmware v2.03 , 6D , 650D , EOS M.

Canon’s GPS Receiver GP-E2 records GPS information like longitude, latitude, elevation, direction and Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) as EXIF data on photo files using a compatible EOS camera. This lightweight, compact unit can also serve as an electronic compass or a stand-alone GPS recorder.

It was designed specifically for the EOS system, and offers USB and hot-shoe connections with the EOS 5D Mark III and the EOS-1D X (USB connection-only with the EOS 7D). It’s also compatible with the Rebel T5i via USB, and with the EOS Rebel T4i and Rebel SL1 via the Digital terminal on each camera.

The GP-E2 offers the same level of dust- and weather-resistance as the EOS 5D Mark III camera when connected to the camera’s hot-shoe. Dust- and weather-resistance decreases when it’s connected to the camera via the USB cable. For simple and accurate recording of time and location information, the GP-E2 is an ideal complement to the EOS System.

The EOS 5D Mark III and EOS 7D require a firmware upgrade to be compatible with the GPS Receiver GP-E2.

When the EOS 7D is used with the GP-E2 the following restrictions will apply: a) geotagging function will not work for movies while recording; b) geotagging features will not work for movies when using the Map Utility; c) electronic compass information and automatic time setting is not available; d) transmission via the hot shoe is not possible.

GPS

Reception Frequency

1575.42 MHz (L1 band)
* L1 band: Frequency allocated for civilian use. Other frequencies include the L2 band (military use) and L5 band (high-precision civilian use).

Positioning Intervals

Every 1, 5, 10, 15, or 30 seconds, or every 1, 2, or 5 minutes

Satellite Reception

Shown on the GPS indicator (red)
Before signal acquisition: Fast blinking
Signal acquired: Slow blinking

Self-contained Navigation

Not Supported

Digital Compass

Type

Direction calculated using a triaxial geomagnetic sensor and triaxial acceleration sensor

Logging

Logging Interval

Every 1, 5, 10, 15, or 30 seconds, or every 1, 2, or 5 minutes

Log File Format

NMEA-0813

File Usage

– Images can be geotagged using Map Utility with log files.
– Log files can be converted to KMZ files using Map Utility. Routes the camera has traveled can be viewed in Google Earth or other map software by loading the KMZ files.

GPS Modes

Power Switch set to On

Location information (latitude, longitude, altitude, direction, and UTC time) is automatically added to images EXIF information when taking pictures.

Power Switch set to LOG

– Location information (latitude, longitude, altitude, and UTC time) is recorded on GPS Receiver GP-E2 at the specified interval. – Location information (latitude, longitude, altitude, direction, and UTC time) is automatically added to images Exif information when taking pictures.

Connected to a Computer

Supports the following operations when GPS Receiver GP-E2 is connected to a computer and Map Utility is used to access GPS Receiver GP-E2’s log files. – Import logs to the computer
– Delete logs
– Manually geotag shots without GPS information by adding
location information (latitude, longitude, altitude, and UTC time) to image EXIF information
– View a route of where the camera has traveled on a map
– Produce KMZ files from log files
– Update EOS 7D firmware

Type

Set GPS time data on the camera
* Requires signal acquisition from four or more satellites.

Clock Precision

1. High-precision time adjustment: ±TBA sec.
* Margin of error relative to UTC time.
* High-precision time adjustment is only available for EOS-1D series cameras (EOS-1D X or later).
2. Normal time adjustment: ±1 sec.

Updating Interval

1. Auto update: After satellite reception when the GPS Receiver GP-E2 is turned on
2. Immediate updating

Interface
