Workflow with a sound devices recorder and two 5d markIII

5.90K viewsHardware5d Bnc Sound Devices



I’ve have to sync a Sound Devices recorder with two canon 5d marrk III. I’ve already done this with audio TC because I haven’t the proper cable for the Sound Devices yet.
I’ve received the mini-jack to bnc cable (very quick thanks !), so I’m ready to use the bnc in or out of the Sound Devices.

How does it work ? Do I have to let the tentacle plugged in the Sound Devices ?



My sound guy told me about a bnc cable for the sync. He was wrong, it was a lemo connection indeed. I’ve to order another cable, i’m affraid…

Thanks for your answer !


Your Sound Devives recorder should keep in sync with the Tentacles for the whole shooting day. Just jam-sync the Tentacles from your SD recorder with the right cable (TC-Out LEMO to Tentacle). What kind of BNC connection/adapter do you have to your SD?
