I think it would work for this purpose but it might take a lot of work to get it into a functional and portable enclosure that could be taken in travel bags. It is definatly possible to use a USB SD card reader and a hard drive but you would also need a USB Expanion for a mouse/keyboard as well as a portable display. Good luck with your PortaPhotoHarddrive!

i am getting A64 with a touch screen will this ease the display, keyboard and mouse issues?

Yes, it should but you would still need to have at least 4 USB ports on the board it currently only ships with two USB ports here is a USB hub on Amazon

You could run the USB hard drive directly off the board and plug everything else you need to use into this

You would also need something like this USB SD card reader if you don't already have one http://www.amazon.com/IOGEAR-MicroSD-Rea...ard+reader

Oh and whatever your external hard drive uses power wise will need to be less than the maximum USB power output on the Pine 64 or have some kind of supplemental power

That sounds like a good way to solve the problem SSD use around the right amount of power I belive

I've had some USB disks with Y cables, where one cable plugs into the computer for data, and the other cable provides power. You could use a second USB wall wart to power the disk (or getting a single wall wart with multiple USB plugs).
