Step-By-Step User Guide
The inputs and menus of the Panasonic S5, S5ii, and S5iix are nearly identical so this tutorial will be useful for all models.
First, confirm your frame rate.
In this tutorial, we’ll be using 29.97.
On your Deity TC-1, scroll over to the frame rate section and match it to the camera.
Next, scroll over to the out type section and select “A-Out.”
To connect the TC-1 to your camera you need a locking TRS to TRS cable.
Locate the microphone jack on the left side of the camera and plug it in.
A Brief Note
Before we dive into the camera’s settings we want to acknowledge that there is a timecode submenu on the S5. The catch is that it doesn’t accept external timecode.
That’s alright, we can use LTC audio timecode instead.
In your camera’s menu, go to the camera icon, and then the 1st microphone icon.
Inside this set your “Sound Record Level Display” to “on.”
Next, set your “Mic Socket” to “Mic” level.
Finally, go to “Sound Record Level Adjustment” and reduce the gain until channel 1 is roughly -12dB.
Here you can see our timecode on the left channel, while the TC-1 scratch audio is on the right.
