Canon 5D sync

9.31K viewsHardwareCanon


I am wondering if anyone has successful experience of setting up the Canon 5D with a tentacle.

I assume the plugin power required is always on, i.e. it is not necessary to switch on?

Is it ok to leave on auto sound level, or should it be set to manual and some level for TC set?

Also, if auto mic level is set on your tentacle, does it revert to line level when used with a normal camera plugged in by BNC?






Ian, I did a test with a 5D mk2 and simply plugged into the camera adjusting absolutely nothing in the menu. Clearly mic power was on by default. It worked perfectly. I seem to remember that the mk3 has more adjustment and of course metering.



Best regards
