Nikon Image Space
Free to Nikon users – 20GB
Nikon’s Image Space is relatively new to the market, and unlike any of the other cloud services it’s designed solely for Nikon users. It’s free to sign up to and the basic account gives you 2GB of storage – not a great deal, but it’s enough to give you an idea of how the system works.
Image Space only supports Nikon’s own RAW files, which is fair enough, but it does also support JPEG images from any system. The 2GB isn’t a great deal when it comes to image storage, but if you own a Nikon camera then you’re entitled to a Nikon ID plan, which extends the storage to 20GB – though this is still a little limiting in the long run.
Nikon Image Space is only accessible through a browser interface, and when testing on a Mac and PC, using a variety of different browsers, we found the platform quite slow for uploads – especially when compared to the competition. Once images have uploaded, however, the interface and options are clear and easy to navigate. As a cloud storage system, the tagging and navigation are also well thought out. Unfortunately, at present the upload speed and stability make Image Space a little frustrating to use.
Pros Looks great and offers full support for all Nikon image files
Cons Slow uploads and general stability issues let it down
We say Good for Nikon users, but plenty of room for improvement
Free for Nikon users, but Image Space’s speed and storage need improvement
