GH5 and GH4 timecode

Hi Ulrich,


I am trying to timecode jam the GH5 (and GH4) with a tentacle sync box via the 3.5mm jack. Do you know if this is possible? If so, what are the settings required? Thank you

    Where does the Tentacle plug into the Lumix GH5?

      Hi AK,

      like any other DSLR camera GH5 and GH4 are supported by Tentacle Sync. As those cameras do not have a dedicated TC-In connector, you need to use the audio input of the cameras to record the timecode on an audio track.

      Just to be correct, you cannot “jam” those cameras. Jamming means: You connect the Timecode for a short period of time to the camera, it will take over the timecode and continues it. But this is not possible with cameras like GH4 and GH5. Here you need to record audio timecode and therefore you need to let the Tentacles connected to camera all the time during shooting.

      Hope that helps!
