I don't know about cameras. In iPhoto you can click on get info on a pic and it will show a map and you can select the location you took the photo.

Right, that's based on the information from the GPS units. I know the Nikon coolpix p6000 has a gps receiver built in, and I'm tempted to get a receiver for my dslr.

I don't know of any compacts that offer geotagging out of the box but . . .

You can use a gps device (like an iphone or handheld garmin etc) to create a gps track. I uses 'trails' on the iphone but there are several apps that offer the functionality. Set it going then stick it in your pocket.

Wander around taking your photos as normal.

Export the .gpx gps file from your gps device onto your Mac. Copy your photos to a temp folder (not straight into iPhoto). Use something like GPSLinker which matches the timestamp on your photos to the timestamp from your GPS track and applies the location data to the exif data on your photos. Voila! Geotagged photos

Now import those photos from the temp folder into iPhoto and delete the temp folder.

I've made it sound much more complex than it really is. Once you've done it once you'll see how easy it is. If you have 10+ photos it's much quicker and accurate than 'hand-tagging' photos in iPhoto.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

One option is to have a hand held GPS and then with some software compare the date-time stamp on the images to 'sync' with the location.
Another option is to have a gps connected/embeded in the camera so that Lat/Lon information gets recorded in each image file.
The second option is far better.

A simple search on the internet returns...
