"I have a Canon SX220HS which I am delighted with,some photographs not many show where the location the photo was taken on the information file, in England and also abroad.
this camera does not have GPS how can the location information be recorded?"

Hi John,

Thanks for your question about the Canon Powershot SX220 HS. You are right that it was originally built with no GPS capabilities.

Early in 2011, Canon introduced the first GPS-enabled camera, the SX230 HS and the SX220 HS-a Europe only-non GPS model, the SX220 HS.

That is quite odd that you are getting location information in the file. That's beyond my area of expertise and you should contact Canon UK directly:

The Canon Powershot SX220 HS replaced the SX210 model, but does not have GPS included.

There's a 14x, 28-392mm optical zoom lens with IS (image stabilizer) built in. That's its most impressive feature in my opinion.

It was built with a 12.1 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor and a 3 inch LCD screen. The SX220 HS uses a DIGIC 4 image processor.

Please let us know what you find out after talking to Canon UK about your SX220 HS.

Good luck!
