Future Samsung Cameras Will Come With Dropbox and 50GB of Free Storage

Samsung camera lovers received some good news via Dropbox today. According to Dropbox’s head of mobile business development Lars Fjeldsoe-Nielsen, future Samsung smart cameras are going to come packing Dropbox and 50GB of free storage for 2 years.

The news is nothing new for Samsung Galaxy Camera owners, who already had the service and 50GB built in. But the fact that they’re putting Dropbox on all cameras means you won’t have to pony up $500 to get the automated cloud storage benefits.

The cameras will be able to use the newly integrated cloud storage to automatically back up photos as they take them. For those using Samsung smartphones (or the Galaxy Camera), there’ll also be an option to only send the photos you select by clicking on the thumbnail, so as not to use up all of your data automatically.

As the line between smartphone and camera continue to blur, with Samsung at the forefront of that movement, we’re thinking that option will start coming in handy on the camera side as well.

    What happens after two years?

    This is an issue. I guess it is why Dropbox have even agreed to this in the first place. They get new customers invested to the point where they don’t want to lose the service after two years and just buy into it.

    I wonder what would be cheaper after two years, buying a dropbox account or a new camera with another 50gb?
