Geotagging Photos With The 3G iPhone

In my last post, I mentioned that I hoped the GPS built-into the 3G iPhone would permit me to use the iPhone for geotagging photos. Apparently Apple already had that in mind. However, it is not clear whether this can only be done for photos taken with the iPhone's built-in camera or if you can use this feature with a real camera too.

Here's an excerpt from the 3G iPhone GPS information page:
iPhone 3G provides GPS-powered location feeds to built-in applications as well as to applications available on the App Store. Take a photo with the camera, for example, and iPhone can geotag it with GPS location information. That way, when you share photos online, friends and family can see where every snapshot was taken. And you can shop the App Store for GPS-enabled applications such as mobile friend finders or interactive city guides.
