I geotag a lot of my travel pictures and I'd like to offer some tips....

This digital camera features 14x optical and 4x digital zoom to bring you close to the action and image stabilization to help capture clear, crisp images. Smile and face detection help ensure you get a great shot every time.
My personal favorite is the Canon SX230 series. Awesome camera with fast picture-taking, great zoom capabilities, and a small, sleek design. Nikon has some new models coming out with the Geo-tagging feature, but I haven't gotten my hands on any of them to play with.

In my opinion, an independent logger will be far more useful than an integrated GPS.
The loggers usually have far more sensitive/accurate GPS receivers, and can be used for more than just geotagging.
In fact, there are apps for most modern smartphones that will record tracklogs - you can geotag the photos from ANY camera in the postprocessing workflow using such a tracklog.
For a standalone logger, I suggest one of the i-Blue 747 series. I have a 747A+, the MediaTek MT3329 chipset in it is very sensitive and accurate.
In addition you'll be able to upgrade the logger more easily (by replacing just the logger) when improved chipsets come out - expect to see dual-constellation (GPS/GLONASS) or even tri-constellation (GPS/GLONASS/Galileo) loggers within a year.
Some smartphones (such as the international Samsung Galaxy Note) already have dual-constellation support, which provides significantly improved accuracy in many cases.
