[prMac.com] Zwijndrecht, Belgium - Galarina today is pleased to announce GeoLogTag 3.0, an update to their popular photo geotagging solution for iPhone and iPod touch devices. Featuring a comfortable and simple user interface, GeoLogTag aims to make the cumbersome process of geotagging photos as easy as possible. It offers an all-in-one geotagging solution for photos taken with any digital camera, and was developed specifically to take advantage of the iPhone's unique capabilities and touch interface.
GeoLogTag has no settings. While photos are taken with a digital camera (DSLR, point and shoot), GeoLogTag continuously tracks the user's location just like a traditional GPS data logger. Among only one of GeoLogTag's unique features is its ability to log locations every 3, 5, 10 or 60 minutes to prolong battery life. If the photos are stored on a Mac or on Flickr, GeoLogTag geotags the photos using the logged locations. Windows users can geotag their photos by using the GPX file generated by GeoLogTag in combination with a Windows geotagging application.

"From day one, the Apple philosophy started from the user. A user should not be confronted with technical hurdles. He just wants to get a job done," said Chris Cornelis, founder and CEO of Zwijndrecht, Belgium based Galarina. "As a long time Mac user and passionate amateur photographer, I created GeoLogTag based from my own experience with geotagging photos. While the geotagging functionality that comes with the iPhone's built-in camera is pretty neat, the possibilities of the camera are limited when compared with my Nikon D80. This convinced me to start development on an app which extended the devices capabilities, and so GeoLogTag was born."
Version 3.0 is a major update, and sports many new enhancements, such as an extra log mode for logging a location every hour, support for altitude, and better support for travelers going through different timezones. GeoLogTag now offers geotagging support for photos in RAW format. Supported formats include Nikon (NEF), Canon (CR2), Sony (ARW, SR2), Olympus (ORF), Pentax (PEF), Kodak (DCR, KDC), Epson (ERF), Panasonic (RAW, RW2), Mamiya (MEF), and Hasselblad (3FR).
Macintosh users will experience a major performance enhancement for geotagging JPEGs, approximately 10 times as fast compared with version 2.2.1. Users can now login to a Mac shared folder with their user name and password, and GeoLogTag shows a running clock at startup to make syncing with a digital camera easier. The application now displays a rough estimation of how much battery is left during geologging. Estimates will become better as GeoLogTag "learns" about the user's battery.
