Setting the time code
Select the [SYSTEM SETTINGS] menu → [SYSTEM MODE] → [FREQUENCY] → [59.94i]/[59.94p]/[29.97p].
Select the [REC SETTINGS] menu → [TC] → [DF/NDF] → [DF]/[NDF].
[DF]: Advances the time code in the drop frame mode.
[NDF]: Advances the time code in the non-drop frame mode.
Select the [REC SETTINGS] menu → [TC] → [SET TC].
The [SET TC] screen is displayed.
Confirm the setting value of the time code.
Time code function during battery replacement
The operation of the time code generator will continue by the backup mechanism functioning even when replacing the battery.
The time code of the free run may shift when any item in the [SYSTEM SETTINGS] menu → [SYSTEM MODE] is changed. Set the power to < > (ON) again, confirm the time code, and set it again if necessary.
Time code with variable frame rate record
The time code is fixed to [REC RUN] when the variable frame rate recording function is set to enable. The time code will advance in the speed corresponding to the ratio setting values of [FREQUENCY] (system frequency) and [FPS] (frame rate).
As an example, the time frame will advance 60/24 frames (two seconds 12 frames) per second when [FREQUENCY] is set to [24.00p] and [FPS] is set to [60fps].
