Camera upload takes very long

Camera upload takes very long

I’m uploading photos form my IPhone camera di Dropbox for the first time. There are 4.000 photos and it has been uploading for 3 hours already. Is it normal to take so long?

Consider the average size of each photo and multiply that by 4000. That's A LOT of data to upload. Yes, it's going to take a while.
