I'm not too sure if you'll be able to download directly to an external hard drive, but I'm thinking that you won't be able to. I'm not trying to be a smart a$$, but you probably should think about buying a computer if your going to shoot digital photos. Another option is to buy a photo printer (that doesn't require a computer) with the same type of card slot that your camera uses. At least you'll be able to print your photos directly from the card. Unfortunately, your editing capabilities will be very limited (to crop and red-eye reduction only) unless you use a computer with some sort of editing software. There are a lot of excellent FREE photo editing programs available for download from the internet.
If I don't have a computer what would be the best way to store pictures from my digital camera? Can i upload the pictures directly to an external hard drive?
