Test Your Connection
Part of being a photographer means working in the field. Out in the real world -- especially when shooting for clients-- it is important to backup your photos to a cloud service ASAP. What if your SD card, or hard drive fails? Or even worse, what if your precious gear is stolen? We created this page so you can test the speed of your connection so you have a better idea of how long it will take to upload, or download your shots. Test it out at different WiFi hotspots you frequent to find the most reliable speed.
This chart below gives you a breakdown of how long you can expect to wait for an upload with various speeds for common file-types:
|JPEG (5mb)||10s||5s||less than 2.5s|
|RAW/CR2 (40mb)||~1min||47s||less than 25s|
|HD Video (1.5gb)||50m||25m 30s||less than 12m 30s|
