Anyone has this and would like to share their experience? I hope its better than my Nikon Coolpix P6000 which takes a long time to acquire a satellite fix and drains the battery if GPS is kept on. I have resorted to geotagging the image with my Garmin 60csx tracklogs + Geosetter instead.

Other questions I am interested to find out:
1. Does the CL65 has azimuth?
2. What is its startup time? Coldstart and Warmstart. The P6000 is 1.5 seconds to 2.0 seconds which is a long time for me.
3. Can it geotag videos?

Thanks for any input.

Noah, try the Panasonic DMC-ZS7 / TZ10 . Set to launch in Sin late March to early April 2010 but I yet to see it.

Specs says it has a GPS that geo-tags and identifies over half a million locations

Features to Note :
- Has a 12X OPTICAL zoom ( equal to 25mm to 300mm )
- Leica designed DC VARIO ELMAR 25mm ultra-wide-angle lens, F3.3 - 4.9
- 14.5-megapixel CCD that shoots with up to 12.1-megapixel resolution
- ISO 64 - 6400
- record high-definition motion picture
- image stabilization
- Face Recognition
- Size 103.3 x 59.6 x 32.6 mm
- Weight 218g

Read the review here http://www.dpreview.com/news/1001/10012605panazs7.asp

I have a Panasonic LX3 but looking at this to complement with long zoom and geo-tagging function.

Yet to get my hands on it so cannot comment on your questions, but the review looks good. One sore point is as you had pointed out, battery life sucks with GPS on ... but this sounds familiar .... most GPS be a PND, Cell-Phone etc... exhibits same symptom :(

On battery life issue, I think the only way to solve this problem is to either have a spare battery (battery must then be removable) or to look for a camera which is able to pair with a BT device for geotagging purposes. My Globalsat BT-338 can last up to 12 hours on a single charge. But finding a good camera that has Bluetooth geotagging capability is another story. Can anyone recommend? I'm looking for a digital camera that weighs less than 300 grams for portability.

Anyone who takes pictures while the car is moving at 90-110kph - what resolution do you set your image to? I've tried 1MB (1280x960) and 2MB (1600x1200) - see pic attached - but still cannot see the address and phone numbers although the labels are clear. This is taken with aperture priority. (Yes, I click and drive. So sue me. :mrgreen: )
