Camera

Does Not Have a GPS (satellite)

The DP1 Quattro does not have a GPS (satellite). Most of the other cameras of a similar age and spec to this digital camera also do not have a GPS (satellite).

We compared all the other cameras which also have a GPS (satellite) to this camera and we think the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 EK-GC200 (£599.99), or the Ricoh WG-4 GPS which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
