    Hi! I'm a software developer and a photographer and I'm coding in python to automate photo stitching into panoramas.

    To do this, I need to automatically, accurately synchronize the times on my DSLR and my iPhone. Ideally I'll set the times in advance but even an offset of a couple seconds needs to be accounted for. To make sure the date/time is as accurate as possible, I need to take a photograph of my iPhone's time with the DSLR camera and then compare the two times together.

    For this to work automatically though, I need the following:
    1. The iPhone must display the time in landscape mode to maximize the screen-space
    2. The time must contain seconds, preferably in UTC (universal time coordinated)
    3. The screen must contain the time and nothing else on it (extraneous text or could break my results)
    4. The time should have decent contrast. Black and white with no other details would be ideal

    I've looked around on the app store and the closest thing I can find that fits my needs is ZuluTime but my script produces false positives because there's a decent amount of text on the screen. There's another app called UTCTime which is almost perfect but it won't display seconds so I can't use it. I'm writing now to ask if anyone can recommend an app that is better than UTCTime/ZuluTime for my purposes? Thank you for your input in advance.
