by . March 29th, 2015

Time to recap this week’s coolest and most insightful links to anything photography in the Shot List! And this week, one of the biggest and possibly best news we have learned is that Amazon offers unlimited photo storage for only $12 a year!

Michael Zhang of Petapixel easily summarizes why we photographers should switch to this new service in his article he said:

This new plan should be popular for photographers who want to back up their entire body of work. For just $1 a month, you will be able to store not just infinite JPEG files, but most popular RAW formats as well, including Adobe’s DNG, Nikon’s NEF, Canon’s CR2, and Sony’s ARW.

It’s just important to remember that the service can only be used for personal and archiving reasons. According to the Amazon Cloud Drive Terms of Use:

1.2 Using Your Files with the Service. You may use the Service only to store, retrieve, manage, and access Your Files for personal, non-commercial purposes using the features and functionality we make available. You may not use the Service to store, transfer or distribute content of or on behalf of third parties, to operate your own file storage application or service, to operate a photography business or other commercial service, or to resell any part of the Service. You are solely responsible for Your Files and for complying with all applicable copyright and other laws, including import and export control laws and regulations, and with the terms of any licenses or agreements to which you are bound. You must ensure that Your Files are free from any malware, viruses, Trojan horses, spyware, worms, or other malicious or harmful code.
