There are several external hard drives with SD card readers specifically made for photographers..................Let Google be your friend.

i know that and i have used then in the past. but why not have the ability to copy from camera to HD/FD directly. you can back up you files with cheaper hard drives that don't need power.

I have not yet tried it, but wouldn't it be possible to connect the camera and a HD/FD to a smartphone and use some software to copy the images from the camera to the HD/FD? Alternatively, connect a cardr eader as well as the HD/FD to the smartphone and copy between devices. I maybe later will try this weekend.
