It'd nice to be able to connect a hard drive or SSD to the D800E using the USB3 port (and some sort of USB3 to SATA cable) and then use the camera's menu to transfer the pictures from the flash card to the HD or SSD. That way I would just travel with a HD/SSD instead of the notebook. Does anyone know of any way to do this or similar solution? Thanks

How would you power the hard drive? The camera operating system would also need to be designed  to mount external drives and probably a way of installing device drivers.

If you want portable storage why don't you just get a few extra high capacity SD & CF cards? Those would be smaller than an HD drive
