GH5 and GH4 timecode

37.20K viewsHardware

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

Matthew Williams, you’ve spoken like a true amateur not understanding why professionals use real timecode devices rather than the free timecode system that run through an app. Timecode, like any good clock, is a highly accurate time measuring system and to maintain accuracy you should use a device that is temperature controlled and calibrated to a high degree of accuracy. The clock on your phone is neither of these. If you want professional accuracy in your timecode, use professional gear like that from companies like Tentacle Sync, Ambient etc.
