How can I get all new photos/movies added to my iPhone to be auto-downloaded into a specified folder each time I connect the iPhone to my Mac? (without deleting the downloaded photos/movies from the iPhone)

The "Image Capture" and "AutoImporter" apps seem to only be able to download all photos each time, which means that unless I choose the "Delete after import" option, I get many duplicates for each import.

The forum build of DropBox will do that for you. I'm not sure if you can specify exactly what folder (by default it goes in a folder called 'Camera Imports' in your dropbox folder). It will even earn you more space.
