Our Tentacle SYNC E or ORIGINAL timecode generator or TRACK E work with every DSRL or mirrorless camera that has at least a 3.5 mm jack microphone input. If your camera is able record a stereo signal, the Tentacle timecode generators SYNC E & ORIGINAL will send the audio timecode to the left channel and the sound of the built-in reference microphone to the right channel.
Setup with camera:
- Set your project frame rate for both Tentacle device and camera
- Sync your Tentacle device, so it's outputting timecode (blinking green)
- Set the output volume to Mic or Auto
- Connect your Tentacle with the included Tentacle to DSLR cable to the mic input of the camera
- Adjust the input level of the mic input of the camera, so make sure, it's not clipping.

If you use the microphone input of your camera, you will lose the recording of the internal microphone, but replace it with the reference microphone of the Tentacle on one track. If you want to use a high quality microphone together with your camera and a SYNC E, you can use this Tentacle Microphone Y-cable.
