    With my camera's(canon 40D) USB port can I hook up a 250GB hard drive and shoot from that? I know I would have considerably slower write speeds, just wondering. Also, if I hook up my camera to the comp via that USB port can I save them directly to my computer(mac) is this so called tethered shooting? What program would they load into?


    Thanks

    Yes, you can do tethered shooting with your 40D. You use the Canon EOS Utility.
