Should be able to depending on the OS its running.

Most modern cameras support PTP, Picture Transfer Protocol meaning you can connect the camera to a supporting computer and download the files without installing drivers.

According to wikipedia, Mac OS X v10.1 onwards supports PTP.

Of course you could always just buy a cheap card reader ..
