Is it possible to copy over all the pictures from the EOS 60D camera to a "External Hard Drive" using the camera usb port. if I can do this is I will not need a laptop in my camera bag just to backup my pictures. Because the laptop is heavy and I can do without the extra weigh having to carry one when I travel.

This is the only reason I wanted to carry a laptop to backup all the pictures.

Thank you:D

No, you need a device that can read and write files and neither the camera or the hard drive have that ability.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

There are external drive housings that also include card reading capabilities. Check out HyperDrive, for one.

Oh crap, it's a shame canon didn't add a feature in the EOS cameras that you can.

Thanks Tony
