Android 5.x introduced support for capturing photos in RAW on compatible devices.
Several third-party apps already make it possible to capture images in DNG.
Dropbox app currently ignores DNG files in the DCIM folder and it only uploads JPGs.
+1 for this feature. My OnePlus One supports DNG for about a year now. LG G4 also has ability to shoot raw.
I also would like to see a sub-feature - backup DNG to the cloud and delete it locally, while keeping JPG version locally.
Voting +1 to this, just having discovered this limitation in the Dropbox Camera Upload feature on my LG G4. Shouldn't be too much of a hassle to add the file type to the auto backup feature?
My Note 5 does .dng , and it's a royal pain to transfer them. I'm paying $10 / mo for Dropbox, it should load any file in DCIM folder, I don't care if Carousel only shows .jpgs. I'm OK if Carousel just ignores raw files
Currently, one good alternative is Bittorrent Sync
The more painful way is using file manager to "share" the raw file to Dropbox.... no easy way to group select
Lastly, Dropbox could fix this by providing some sort of user configurable copy rules from the mobile file system to Dropbox
While Dropsync is ok, you have to pay the $5.99 to upload DNG due to size (all of mine are >25MB). The cost of Dropsync isn't the issue (of course it is one more app on my phone using battery and constantly monitoring for activity) - it should be a simple, no-brainer (yes, I have done programming in the past so I know what I am talking about) for Dropbox to add an option to allow users to control what files are considered "Photos" or "Photos and videos". I wonder what format videos they support?
