Set to [TC PRESET] in the main menu → [RECORDING SETUP].
Set the time code using the control stick.
When pushed down to the right, the digit that has been to set (flashing) moves to the right.
When pushed down to the left, the digit that has been to set (flashing) moves to the left.
When pushed down toward the top, the value of the digit that has been to set (flashing) is raised by one.
When pushed down toward the bottom, the value of the digit that has been to set (flashing) is lowered by one.
Press the control stick, enter the values of the time code, and exit the time code settings screen.
Use the <COUNTER> button to display [TC] and confirm that the set value is displayed.
Settable time code range
For 59.94 Hz (except for 24PN)
00:00:00:00 to 23:59:59:29
00:00:00:00 to 23:59:59:23
For 50 Hz
00:00:00:00 to 23:59:59:24
Time code function during battery replacement
Even during battery replacement, the backup mechanism functions, allowing the time code generator to continue operating.
When each item of the system mode has been changed, the time code of free run may shift. Turn on the power again, check the time code, and reset it, if necessary.
Time codes in variable frame rate
In 24PN, recording is 24 frames, output is 30 frames, which matches 2:3 pull-down images.
The advance rate of the recording and output time code matches real time only when the image frame rate is 24P. When 60P, recording advance rate is 60/24 times. In this case, the camera switches to [REC RUN] fixed operation and the time code value that is output when recording starts matches the recording time code.
It is the same when shooting in modes other than 30P when in 30PN and shooting in modes other than 25P when in 25PN.
