      I have a Canon 7d dslr camera that I am taking on a trip.   I would like to be able to plug my camera into my Samsung note 10.1 2014 edition and download, view and edit my photos.   I can't find a program that allows me to do that.   Will photo shop touch allow me to do that?

          Weren't you sup[plied with the Canon software?

           

          Anyway:

          Opening files directly from the camera is a bad idea for a variety of reasons*, and it most certainly isn't faster than using a FireWire or USB2 card reader.

           

                 
                  • Drains the camera battery
                  • Runs the risk of the software you're using to open the images writing to the card and destroying the format
                  • Runs a small but significant risk of USB power frying the camera
                  • Slowest method known to mankind of getting images off a CF or SD card
