Rico Corporation have release a new -enabled for taking pictures with location information (for example for Flickr’s Geotagging): the Ricoh 500SE.

It really isn’t the prettiest thing I have ever seen, but the features aren’t too bad: The bad looks result due to it’s waterproof and shock-resistant shell. The camera takes pictures with up to 8 Megapixel and 3x optical zoom. Interesting is also:

Embedded Attribute Data
In addition to storing GPS data in image and video, the 500SE provides a user-defined data-dictionary for tagging the media with workflow-related information. This ‘meta-data’ becomes attributes in any GIS system and may be automatically imprinted on the images.

Automatic Map Integration
Geo-coded images and video are automatically converted into ‘layer files’ by available GIS plug-ins. Hovering over a point displays a thumbnail with the user-defined attributes, while clicking on the point opens the full-size image.
