Which WIFI Camera to UPLOAD Files Automatically

Which WIFI Camera to UPLOAD Files Automatically

Hello All,

 

I have been looking and looking but to no avail, I cannot find a camera that has WIFI, well that is a lie, I find them, but none of them seem to connect to Dropbox directly. I just want to connect a camera to my HOTSPOT and as I take photos, they upload to a predetermined folder for the project I am working on.

 

Is this possible or how is anyone completing this task these days?

Hey @Bo_Jangalz, I hope you're doing well!

If I were you, and provided you have a free minute, I'd suggest that as a feature request under our 'Share an idea' section. 

We listen to your needs because it allows us to fully appreciate how Dropbox fits into and influences your daily routine. 

So feel free to do that!

Hey @Bo_Jangalz, thanks for joining our Community!

I'm afraid that's not currently possible with cameras. Photos can only be uploaded automatically, as you take them, through a phone.

When it comes to cameras, you need to plug the camera in to your computer and upload the photos through the Dropbox desktop application.

They'll also get uploaded automatically, you won't need to do it manually. But you'll need to plug the camera in to the computer.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I do realize that and have been doing that for years already but was hoping there was something that we could use as there are other social media wifi cameras that would work with Dropbox.

 

Thank you for confirming the information,

Has this feature been added since this thread 2 years ago? I was looking at the Canon EOS Rebel T7 DSLR Camera with built-in Wi-Fi on (Links removed by moderator per Dropbox Community GuidelinesWould I be able to connect into WiFi and upload to Dropbox folder directly?

Hi @noeltroy,

 

Nice to e-meet you in our Community!

 

It's a great idea, and I can see how useful it would be.  

 

You can visit the 'Share an idea' section where we keep track of suggestions like this. The more upvotes a feature suggestion gets, the better!

 

In the meantime, it's worth checking out if the manufacturer supports anything like that in the camera firmware.

 

For example, some printers and scanners have options to upload direct to cloud, including Dropbox, from the device settings. That's something they would build into the device's capabilities.

 

Let me know if you need anything else!
