I own a D700 and D300s. I am going to be using both this afternoon and was wondering if there was a way I could syncronize the date/time on both via a USB connection. I know that the Nikon Transfer utility can do it some how, but I don't use that. I was really wondering if anyone made a third party program that I can simply connect my camera, sync the time and be done?



Nikon D700 w/grip, Nikon D300s, AF 50mm f/1.8D, AF-S Nikkor 24-85 f/3.5-4.5 ED VR, AF-S NIKKOR 70-200 f/2.8G ED VR II, AF-S Nikkor 18-70 f/3.5-4.5G ED, SB-700, 2xYN565EX

Since no one has hacked Nikon camera's firmware, I would guess they are using memory mapped ports for their entry points into the cameras firmware and unless one knows the exact memory location to update to get a function to work you are out of luck. Because of this I do not think many people are going to provide this for every possible camera for free or even for a fee.
