I dunno, didn't think I was one. Your problem is easily fixed - card reader and usb cable. Windows will detect the card reader quite nicely. I believe OS X will do it as well. No need for 3rd party software, as both operating systems can read Canon RAW files with the appropriate add-on software (free).
I just get sick and tired of Canon users bashing Nikon for any good ole reason they can find. If you can't handle competition, then stay out of the ring.
Dave read the question I asked!
I don't care about card reader and usb cable, I have NO PROBLEM getting the images onto the laptop! Good Grief!
I NEED TO BE ABLE TO SYNC THE CAMERA WITH THE LAPTOP SO THE TIME ON THE CAMERA MATCHES THE LAPTOP. This has nothing to do with reading the raw files.
To even take it further.
I have as many as 5 camera's shooting at a wedding, I want the exif data with respect to the internal clock of the cameras to all be the same, not close but exact. This way when I put ALL the images in one folder I can then use Lightroom to sort by "Capture Time" and they will all be in the exact sequence.
With Canon EOS Utility has a feature to "always match computer time", since an assistant I use on occasion uses Nikon (which is fine with me, I'm not bashing) I can't use EOS Utility to sync HIS CAMERA WITH THE TIME STAMP ON MY MACBOOK PRO.
Get it now?
