Re: Picture Geotags not in Datainformation

Its not possible to view the Coordinates in the properties/information of the picture, if browse in Windows on the smartphone.

 

 

 

Solution:

Its always necessary to copy the picture on the on local space (harddrive from PC, etc.), than the informations are visible.

Thanks Rickard.

Hi and welcome to the community! Since you're new please be sure that you have checked out our Discussion guidelines.

 

Have you checked so that geo-tagging is enabled in the camera? Start the camera and then tap [menu] and the settings tab to check if it's enabled.

Re: Picture Geotags not in Datainformation

Have you set position to high accuracy under Settings -> Location? When you start the camera you should see an icon of a satellite that's flashing at the top right. Wait until it stops flashing before you take the picture. It may take a little while for the GPS to get your location.

Yes, high accuracy is enabled. But the satellite icon is not visible.

Re: Picture Geotags not in Datainformation

You can see it in the EXIF of the picture. If you for example rightclick the picture in Windows and select Properties -> Information you can see longitude and latitude.
Can you try starting the camera outside with free sight to the sky, wait a minute and then take a picture and see if it works?
