Transfer Camera Settings to Another Camera?

Doing a quick forum search and searching Google yielded me no answers.

I shoot a TV show using 3 EX1s. One of them are mine and 2 are rented from a friend of mine. Whenever we get his cameras the settings and picture profiles are of course always different. On my camera I have created a specific PP for this show. So, my question is whether or not there is a way to just upload camera and PP settings to an SxS card, pop it into another camera, sync, and go? It's not the end of the world if this isn't doable, but as we all know, stupid little things like this that save 5-10 minutes on set can really help out in the long run!

Look on page 125 of the manual....under "other".... look at "camera data".... store or recall,
this is what your looking for.

I started using it when my EX3 would come back from a rental and all the settings would be different. I store my data on a SDHC card and then recall the saved camera settings using this function. This also comes in handy when I do a 2 or 3 camera shoot as I have a "PP " that I like to use.

I hope this helps.....

Thanks so much, exactly what I need! And good thought on backing it up before rental - I will adopt that practice in a heartbeat!
