Connecting the <DC OUT/RS> terminal to the external recording start/stop switch

It is possible to get a 1.0 A current from the <DC OUT/RS> terminal of the recording module.

Recording start/stop can be controlled by connecting an external switch to this terminal.

An LED connected to this terminal can also be used as a tally lamp. This is useful for shooting video when fixing the camera on a crane.
