    what about dropbox with their fantastic 50 gb free space? 7gb from skydrive – is nothing…

  • Igor says:

    btw, why should user have to select each file (not all at once) to synchronize with SkyDrive (better Dropbox) ? Why only 9 files? 9 – is nothing. Why not all? Why there is no any log in storage? Why there is no smart way for synchronization?

    Many thanks in advance,
    Igor

  • Renato Trevisan says:

    I’ve managed to upgrade the firmware of the camera, I try the same process to upgrade de lens firmware but in the camera part where I’m supposed to press OK to upgrade it, it happens as if the upgrade file weren’t in the SD card, so the upgrade option in the menu doesn’t become available. What can I do?

    Hello, so got this camera for my boyfriend for his birthday, however cant use it from day one as it comes up with check the lens, phoned samsung they said will send you a link with the required updates. Received this after phoning again to request it. After some issues and downloading a program to open zipped files I have managed to update the firmware to 1.14, however the lens update, well, not happening!!!!!!! Can someone please help as this is very frustrating, he has a camera he cant use, it keeps saying “check the lens” when trying to take a picture when we were told it should be fine once the firmware has been updated, which it has. The lens update has nothing by the side of it, and is grayed out when trying to update!

    I would prefer “Delete All” photos to be while watching photos, not only in configuration screen. “Format sD card” – yes should be in configuration screen, but “Delete all” should not be in config screen.
    Other than that this is great product. Well done Samsung.

    • psalmistloi says:

      Thank you for your valuable feedback Stjepan. We will relay the message to keep improving our products and services. Thank you.

    By the way, no need to format SD card, but maybe a backup of your photos before doing the update would be a good idea.
