The main camera that I use is a Sony DSC-HX200V camera with built-in GPS. It does not have a good RAW format image capture. The lack of picture quality seems to be due to a lossy image capture.
Here is a comment I found online that discusses it:
All modern Sony cameras use cRAW 2.3 , lossy format with 11 / 7 bit precision.
Sony produce excellent cameras and optics (high price Sony-Zeiss optics !), but lossy RAW isn't a good solution.
Sony , please, create new lossless RAW format
I need the GPS function that puts the coordinates and even the camera direction in the EXIF data.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a camera that will shoot images with a higher quality?

I use a program called ExpertGPS that allows me to locate the photos on an aerial view of properties and to produce a KML file for use with Google Maps or Google Earth.
