    Anyone used the GP-E2 GPS?

    Thinking of getting this for my upcoming South America/Antarctica trip. Generally gets solid reviews, but everyone says it's huge. Will be using it with the 7D so will have to use the USB cable (groan).

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    I use it. It is big(ish) but not heavy. I wouldn't say I have used it extensively but the battery seems to be lasting well. I have no complaints about the GPS speed and am very happy with he simplicity of the tagging. I like that there is no need to use any software to get the tags on your photos.

    Hey I'm just hoping they'll lend me a nice 400mm lens, let alone a camera!

    I could tell you but I wouldn't want you to get all pissy if it's the wrong brand

    I'm taking a cruise from Valparaiso to Buenos Aires, with a few days floating off the Antarctic coast. The photos I've seen are spectacular, and people who have gone have said it's Alaska times ten. Can't wait!

    Jeff,

    Looks like a good trip with lots of coastal photo potential. The only thing I have read is that the seas between the Cape and Antarctica can be incredibly rough. Looks like the Holland America 20 day itinerary. Boy that is a long time on a boat.

    You're spot-on, Ken! That is a long time on a ship... I've done 16 days, but that was with tons of stops. We only have like 7 ports in 20 days!

    Can't wait to see what you come back with. I'll be sitting on a rock waiting for the light to hit Fitz Roy just right
