Jobo, the German photographic equipment manufacturer, has been around since the 1920s, and is well-known for its photo processing machines and darkroom accessories.

At PMA this year, they’re showing a nifty digital camera add-on called Photo GPS, which attaches to the flash hot shoe of any digital camera and records GPS data as you shoot. (If your camera has a PC terminal, you can still use an external flash unit.)

Once you’re back at your Mac, you download both your images and the GPS data file from the Jobo unit, which has a USB port. The company’s software uses a location database to match the images with the GPS data, and the software adds the location data to your images’ EXIF metadata. If you’re using Raw-format images, the software will create an XML file that stores the GPS data, readable in programs like Aperture and Lightroom.

Jobo plans to ship the Photo GPS mid-year for $159.
