For those who are fond of photography this may be of interest: Amazon has recently launched something they call “unlimited photo storage on-line”, in the cloud. It’s one of the things they offer in their service bundle “Amazon Prime” (or Premium in some countries). Prime contains some other interesting services as well, but for a photographer it is undeniably unlimited storage the most interesting. Today when photography is digital and stored on hard drives, you must have a backup, backup. MUST! If you are a professional it should be an obvious non-issue (but unfortunately it is not always so!). But even for an “amateur” it is important. You do not want all your images to suddenly disappear because of a disk crash. Well, it happens quite often!
To save the images in the cloud has previously been too expensive. Several tens of thousands per year if you have a quantity of pictures. But with Amazon Prime it costs 50 euros per year! Is it true? Does it work? I decided to test-drive Amazon Prime Unlimited Online Photo Storage. Read my report on the BKWine Photography Blog. I will soon publish another analysis of an alternative supplier who also recently started offering unlimited storage space. In a few weeks time.
