To be able to endure a photographer's travels, Canon designed the GP-E2 to share the same rugged and durable exterior construction as the EOS 5D Mark III DSLR body while still remaining compact and lightweight. Able to withstand harsh weather conditions, the GPS Receiver GP-E2* is a great enhancement to the EOS 5D Mark III for those who wish to take their EOS system out into even the most remote environments.
*The GP-E2 offers the same level of dust- and weather- resistance as the EOS 5D Mark III when connected to the camera's hot shoe. Dust- and weather-resistance decreases when it is connected to the camera via the USB cable.
*The EOS 5D Mark III and EOS 7D require a firmware upgrade to be compatible with the GPS Receiver GP-E2, which will be available soon. **The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R require a firmware 2.0.0 or above to be compatible with the GPS Receiver GP-E2. †When the EOS 7D is used with the GP-E2 the following restrictions will apply: a) geotagging function will not work for movies while recording; b) geotagging features will not work for movies when using the Map Utility; c) electronic compass information and automatic time setting is not available; d) transmission via the hot shoe is not possible.
