I own a Nikon L19 (among others). I'm looking into ways to geotag its  
photos, and more for the challenge than anything else, am avoiding  
computer-based software, i.e. I'm looking for hardware solutions, ideally  
an integrated GPS logger and photo tagger. My research so far is on my  
blog <http://my.opera.com/Andrew%20Gregory/blog/photo-geotagging>.

BTW, I use Geosetter <http://www.geosetter.de> and have been able to add  
various EXIF values including the date/time stamp and location to regular  
JPEGs, such as those taken by typical mobile phones.
