oops, this is "old" and has no replies I can spot.

However, I have the same problem:  my Nikon D750 has no built-in GPS.  My iPhone 6s tags its photos with the location, altitude and the direction in which the photo was taken (compass bearing).

The latter can be very important!

The D750 GPS attachments do not give the bearing.

Is there any attachment that does?

Solutions that do the tagging by synchronising from a smartphone app also (as far as I know) do not give the bearing.  That's not surprising since the bearing only has a meaning if the smartphone is held in the same direction as the camera.  Trail recording apps record the place but not the bearing.

One solution would be to fix the smartphone to the camera and make sure it records the data (position & bearing) at shutter release.  Anyone?

OK, found one: solmeta

Does have the viewing direction included, and not just the azimuth but also the altitude angle (by how much the camera is tilted up or down).

Ordered one and will let you know how its data appear in Affinity Photo.
