Sony Venice Timecode Connection alert

Recommended Posts

Here's a lame feature of the Sony Venice that the Sound Department should know about.

 

Timecode can be input at the BNC TC-in, but cannot be output there (What was TC-I/O on 5/55 is IN only))

Timecode Out is available at the AUX 5P Lemo which looks like ARRI/Ambient Lemo std 5P, BUT TC In is not connected at the Lemo 5P., so if you were expecting to lock Venice TC via the Lemo 5P~~~~ As Tony Soprano used to say:  "Fugettaboutitt"  

 

As a tribute to the Italian roots of the "Venice" can we nickname the camera

 

"The Sony Bennett"

Wait...you said "timecode out is available  at the AUX 5P Lemo"  but also that " TC is not connected at the Lemo 5P"....?

Are there 2 Lemo 5P connectors?   Or just one that has no TC output on it?  Thus there is no way to get a TC output from the camera....right?

All the info is correct..... you missed that TC IN is not connected to the Lemo

 

The BNC TC connection is IN only-----Not switchable to an OUT like the 5/55

 

The Lemo has TC OUT only------No TC IN like ARRI/AMBIENT.

 

All this may change with Versions/Firmwares updates------ 5/55 went through a bunch before the camera became useable
