Does anyone use the Dropbox Camera Upload function? I'm wondering if the quality of the photo is still the same or not before I start deleting all my photo's.

There is no change to the file that is captured by the phone camera.

I haven't noticed any drop in the quality of the image, just tried it with my old N8 and my SGS3, sorry I don't own anything more high def than those phones.

Yeah there is no drop in quality because all it does is poll your camera folder on the phone, then upload any file that shows up in there, it doesn't modify the file taken by the camera.

Depends if it's a one way "poll & push" or a 2 way sync.
Don't really have the time/patience to look into it right now myself ;)

it just sends the pictures, I clean out my phone from time to time and the photos remain on my dropbox without issue.

Thanks everyone, just didn't want to delete the photos and find out Dropbox lowered the quality.

Its a straight file copy procedure so whatever size and quality the image its just copied to your online file.Just do a check on a dummy image to ensure deleting from the camera does not delete from your laptop.
