Amazon Offering Unlimited Storage
Amazon Offering Unlimited Storage

 

Amazon has made news with their Unlimited Photos option for Prime subscribers and they have now upped their offering and $59.99 a year (after free three month trial) gets you unlimited storage of ALL FILES.  This is extremely competitive offering that moves Amazon ahead of Mozy, Backblaze, CrashPlan and other popular backup/online storage services.

The downside – Amazon’s desktop app used for file transfer is extremely limited- with drag and drop of folder(s) and a single option- Cancel- once upload has begun.  Mozy, Backblaze, CrashPlan provide controls for limiting the amount of bandwidth used,  pause/resume capabilities and automatic syncing of designated folders or drives.

Amazon Cloud Drive App
Amazon Cloud Drive App is extremely basic

Professional Photographers, proceed with caution,  Amazon’s TOS states the following: 

You may use the Service only to store, retrieve, manage, and access Your Files for personal, non-commercial purposes using the features and functionality we make available. You may not use the Service to store, transfer or distribute content of or on behalf of third parties, to operate your own file storage application or service, to operate a photography business or other commercial service

 

I’d still like to use this as a backup solution for my personal files but with the current simplistic upload system it isn’t feasible.

 

Will it work for you? Who/where do you backup your files?  Let me know in the comments.

 Trailer park girls be like… Part of the Sony set for shooting last week at #SonyKandotrip Thanks to @artbyadelaide for being awesome. Captured with the #Sony #a9 and #2470Gmaster
 Sony has announced two new lenses and I have had early access to both, shooting on an a7RII and a9 and have sample photos and thoughts on the Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM and Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G Ultra Wide-angle. Watch by clicking on through my profile link or visiting http://photorec.tv/sonywide
 Practice. The stars above our camp for the #sonykandotrip are pretty spectacular. I took a few photos before using the Sony WiFi app with the a9 to take a series of headlamp selfies. Alternative caption- Alone in the dark with only the sound of the wind in the grass to keep you company. Captured with the #sony #A9 and #2470GMaster Lens - Triggered with Sony remote wifi app 2 second delay, 15 second exposure.
