    The Dropbox guideline says that if I start camera with dropbox running I can save taken pics directly in Dropbox.

    Maybe I'm missing something here but I'm unable to do it on my HTC Desire?

    Am I missing something here?

    in dropbox, press menu, new picture, then take your photo, that will be saved in your dropbox folder and uploading immediately

    I was looking for this function earlier after reading this thread but couldn't find it.

    Seems I was looking in the wrong place.

    Is there a way I can make my camera on my sgs save the photos straight into my dropbox?

    (obvious goal - get photos off my phone onto my pc really easily and instantly)

    Just having a look and if use sugarsync which is very simular to dropbox except you tell it what folders you want to sync and it then syncs them rather having to save stuff into the dropbox. You can tell sugarsync to sync the folder that your camera takes photos in.

    You can simply use the Dropspace app on your Samsung Galaxy S and then have the DCIM folder under My Files synced every time to the Dropbox folder on your device. This allows you to automatically save all images and videos you capture with your phone's camera to the Dropbox folder.
