Manage photos and videos from iPhone on the camino

Walking to santiago from france june 23-aug 31!
I'm planning to walk the camino from Auch, France to Fisterre this summer, and I am bringing my iphone 5s to handle all the videos, photos, etc.

I am planning a bit of a project for myself, in terms of shooting videos and photos that I will create something with when I get home. I guess you could call it a documentary of sorts.

I'm hoping to be able to sync my iphone 5s to some sort of cloud shared folder in order to accomplish two things: continually clear space off my phone (I figure I hit wifi every night if not every other day), and also to provide friends and family with a place to follow my adventures, such as a shared folder where they can sort of see my camino as I go.

Any suggestions in terms of apps to use? Best practices? I have flickr's app, but it seems really frustrating to manage sets and pictures on the go. As far as photo editing, I am not overly concerned with finding something robust, just mostly looking to pull these off my phone every few days and allow others to see them.

Thanks!

I have installed Dropbox on my iPhone 5s and tested before my departure in May. It works fine, and you can manage shared folder.

I've never used it but your phone probably already has Apple icloud, which I think will do what you want. Or Facebook?

I am using my iPhone 5s exclusively for photos and videos. I upload to iCloud each time I have wifi. Too much data transfer for the SIM card. Works PERFECTLY!! Sent an invitation to my iCloud folder to my kids so they could see my photos from home. Brilliant!

Buen Camino...............Keith

The only thing I've read is that there is a 1000 photo limit and a 30 day limit for iCloud...

After doing some research I decided to use Dropbox for work. I purchased extra space and now have plenty of storage for photos from my iPhone. I also use Photosync to move photos and videos from one device to another.

Do you find that the video and photo sync is incredibly slow for even a wifi connection? It's taking 24+ hours to upload about 400 photos and a maybe 30 twenty-thirty second clips.

I find Photosync fast - took only half an hour to upload over a thousand photos to another device. It must depend on your wifi connection and probably also the website or service receiving the photos. Certainly much slower to send to Dropbox. I have Dropbox automatically receiving my camera roll in the background whenever in wifi range.
