The Tentacle Sync box works with every DSRL camera that has at least a microphone input 3.5mm jack.If your camera can record a stereo signal, the Tentacle Sync will send the Audio Timecode to the left channel and the sound of the built-in reference microphone of the Tentacle to the right channel.
Setup with DSLR:
- Start your Tentacle in "Green Mode", for that just press the button for more than 3 seconds until it starts blinking green. Now it is outputting timecode
- Connect your Tentacle with the provided black 3.5mm Mini jack to 3.5mm Mini jack cable to the Mic Input of the camera
