    My boss wants to know if I can obtain GPS or lat/long location and camera angle for every pic I snap with the Phantom. What is the best way to achieve this?

    I know I can have a GPS tracker, but is this really the best way? The system will be independent of the image capture. I have heard nothing of recording tilt angle of camera though. Thoughts?

    Cheers!

    No idea an where you'll get camera angle but the GPS location of the Phantom is recorded in the EXIF data for each photo.

    The GPS information is attached the my JPGs -- so, I'm assuming you'll find the same if you look at the properties on your files. I don't see a setting for the camera angle though.
