Step #1

First things first, grab a BNC to 3.5 TRS cable. Next, locate the Timecode Port on the right side of the camera. Make sure it is in the “TC Input” mode and then plug in your TC-1.

Step #2

Really quickly, confirm your frame rate, in this case I’m using “29.97.

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