Like most lazy people in the U.S., we have an Amazon Prime Membership so we don’t have to leave the house and instead, can spend our days loafing on the couch, watching movies and receiving unnecessary consumer items very quickly. On the rare day that we do venture into the harsh light of the world, we like to take photos. Thanks to that proclivity, we have amassed a truly annoying volume of image files. Don’t get me wrong, the photos are great. The storage of said photos is a pain in the bottom.
Turns out that Amazon is here to rescue us again. In a decision that appears to go against all business sense (this is Amazon’s MO, yes?), they are offering unlimited photo storage for Amazon Prime members. Professional photographers are exempted from this offer but us hobbyists who always shoot in RAW? Supposedly, we are covered.
I double checked that RAW files are included in this deal (they are as long as they are smaller than 2GB which all of mine are) and I have confirmed that none of the photos, including the RAW files, are taking up any space.
If you have Amazon Prime, this seems like a no lose situation. Let’s go test the limits of their generosity.
