Nikon D90 to Include GPS?

Nikon D90 Mockup - yeah, it's a fake

Discussing the upcoming Nikon P6000, Thom Hogan hints at the possibility of GPS in the Nikon D90 and other coming Nikon DSLRs.

It appears that Nikon is making a concerted effort to embrace GPS and WiFi across their product line (hint: this won’t be the last time you see me mention GPS support on an upcoming product you might not expect to have it).

Hogan also hinted at this “surprise” in a recent posting on DPR forums.

    I do not need GPS or 4-6 frames a second. What I do need is 16.7MP Full Frame quality and improved Sharpness.

    I have the following experience with Nikon:
    D-7- D-50 D2x D-300 D-80

    I am considering leaving Nikon for the Canon Rebel not the D-450 but the Canon D-500 2009 or D-550 2010

    I want sharper resolution and IS and Canon has it in a Rebel the D-450. Nikon is sound asleep. Please don’t wake up Nikon. Just let them fade away.

    Yes, GPS in the camera is a bit mickey mouse. It could either be a nuisance (‘dobbing on you’ or reveal locations not everyone needs to know), or be a great mapping tool.

    More frames per second… always welcome, even if some people don’t use it.
