    I have a 128GB rMBP which has under 10 GB's of space left. I'm currently abroad in Tokyo and luckily have a 320GB external HDD. I would love to begin saving my photos and video on this external HDD considering i'm taking close to 100+ pics a day and numerous videos.

    Best way to do this?

    Use the OSX application called Image Capture

    Connect your iPhone to the Mac via USB and launch Applications >Image Capture.

    If you're going to do this a lot, you might want to stop iPhoto from auto launching whenever you connect your phone or other camera....
    -Go to Preferences >General.
    -Under Camera, select Image Capture in the “When a camera is connected, open:” option, and then click OK.

    Now when you connect your 
iPhone/iPod touch, Image Capture will be launched and you can choose where you want to download your images.

    BTW, you can also have iPhoto create a library on your external drive... Hold down the Option key when you launch iPhoto and it'll ask you which library/location to use... or you can create a new library.
