    [Mod: don't move. I don't wanna browse bazillions of posts in the news forum that don't even know what RAW means...]

    Previously only available to Prime members, now you can buy unlimited photo storage including some RAWs from Amazon for $12. Great deal...

    ...but it has a rather limited set of RAWs. No Olympus, for example. Seems kinda arbitrary, but whatever. You can convert to DNG and store because those are free.

    Being a Prime member, I've tried this, but it's rather a mess. I couldn't find anything but the web based uploader and a little droplet kinda thing. Bleh. And not many ways to access photos, except web.

    If it hand a better management front end, and say an LR exporter, and I could figure out privacy policies there, it might be cool.

    Anyone using it?

    I value my photographs, based on these two posts I wouldn't touch it if they paid me...

    Currently using it to upload 2TB of DNG files. I was using Crash Plan and now going to use this.

    I actually like this a lot because the DNG can be viewed on the web interface.

    Some of the services seem to have an all-or-nothing feature for uploading, as Apple will have with iCloud Photo Library. Dropbox offers that but at least you can ignore it and use the folder itself for storage; Amazon doesn't have that.

    I'm considering Adobe's Revel; unlimited for $6US/mo, with support for my RAWs and some other nice features.
