Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera (EF Mount) Timecode?

PostSun Dec 01, 2019 4:01 am

Can someone tell me if timecode from external input into audio port from Tentacle Sync is supported on the original Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera (EF) mount, If it is supported can someone please tell me how to do it, I have been going around the twist trying to get the camera to accept the Tentacle Sync Timecode boxes?

First, their is not a BM Pocket Cinema Camera EF, theyall were MFT only. However, the original BM Cinema Camera was a EF Mount, are you referring to this camera? If so, it has balanced line/mic audio inputs, and I do not think it can sync Time Code with an external TC source, it can however, record LTC to one of its audio tracks for syncing an external audio recording.
