Hello, The 2 different displays shown in the picture could vary for a couple of reasons. The one reason is that the display only indicates one frame. In other words, if the difference between those 2, which is one feeding the other, could only be 1/1000 of a frame, but we can't see that because the display does not read to the 1000th, so if one is at 20:46:26:21.999 and the other is at 20:46:26:22.0 , then the difference would only be 1/1000 of a frame difference, also known as .000041 seconds. We are all not looking at the Nomad display, we are looking at a picture of the display, so now you add another element to the "problem", LCD refresh rates. What shutter speed did he use to take the picture? If you took enough pictures, you would see the frames number blurred, but that doesn't mean the time code frame is blurred, it's just a display. The easiest test for this, I believe, is to just simply test this with the slate function in the Nomad. You could also test this, with the proper camera shutter speed, by using 2 Denecke slates and look at the picture that results. I say Denecke, because I have no idea what any other manufacturer has for display indications. But I do know this test will work on a Denecke.
Now, if Glenn could just build us a timecode display that read to the 1/1000 of a frame. But, that would likely create more problems, because a user could look at the 2 displays and say "Hey, my time code is off by 6/1000ths of a frame."
Thank you, Martin
