ARRI ALEXA Mini LF 5-Pin LEMO timecode connection

Step #1

First things first, grab a 5-Pin LEMO to 3.5 TRS cable. Next, locate the Timecode Port on the right side of the camera and plug it in.

Step #2

Really quickly, confirm your frame rate, in this case I’m using “24.

On your TC-1, scroll over to the frame rate section and match it to the camera.
