Yes the two viewpoints can be adjusted together.

Here is a code which can do the job in Mathematica 6.0:

With[{v = RotationTransform[Angle, {0, 0, 1}][{3, 0, 3}],
w = RotationTransform[Angle + 0.1, {0, 0, 1}][{3, 0, 3}]}, Row[{
Graphics3D[{Sphere[], Cuboid[]}, ViewPoint -> v, SphericalRegion ->
ImageSize -> 200],
Graphics3D[{Sphere[], Cuboid[]}, ViewPoint -> w, SphericalRegion ->
ImageSize -> 200]}]], {Angle, 0, 2 Pi}]

Best regards,
