While uploading the pictures to Dropbox by default is uploading to Camera upload folder. How can I change the default location as I have 2 Iphone  and would like to synchronize the pictures to Dropbox by enabling the camera upload option. If the pictures are going to be uploaded default in camera upload folder how can I differentiate the pictures from both Iphone. 

really appreciate if I can get some on this topic.

All devices linked to your account will upload to the Camera Uploads folder. This cannot be changed, and there is no way to differentiate between the photos/videos uploaded from multiple devices.

Everytime when I change it, a new "Camera Uploads" folder is created, and all the images are uploaded to the new folder.

You can't rename it.

Could you guys implement this feature? Lots of people are asking for this since 2012. In my case I have my system in english, but Dropbox still want to use the french name "Chargement appareil photo" for camera upload. 

Thanks

I have the same issue. It this a design choise from DB to prevent people from sharing the same Dropbox? It would really be a nice feature in the future .-)

I also want to change カメラアップロード folder to Camera uploads in English...

Is there any workaround?

No, sorry Kuruno.

I believe that the name is set based upon your language preferences within Dropbox and once its set it cannot be changed.
