Okay, so when I had my Fuji f10, I used the Fuji programs to store my pictures on my laptop. Now that i have my Canon S3, i use the canon programs. I would like to purchase a small and cheap point/shoot to take in my purse for those unexpected moments. I was wondering if I got a different brand, but didn't load the programs, could I just take the memory card, load the pictures on my laptop and then use the canon program to open them? I just don't want all these brand specific programs, if that makes sense.
