FS700 Timecode Display Issue
on Aug 29, 2014 at 6:02:23 pm

What am I doing wrong? The timecode preset/reset function will allow me to put in new numbers, but when I click "OK" the display just reads in 00:00:00:00 and will not let me show me running timecode. Also the "TC" format menu is greyed out. The camera records running timecode, as evidenced in playback mode where I can see it, and when I transcode footage, whatever timecode I've set up is recorded, but I can't see timecode running when I'm shooting. It just stays at 00:00:00:00.

Any advise?

My NX5U caught me twice with that trick.

On my camera, there are a bunch of physical buttons on top of the camera with things like menu, volume etc.

Well one of those buttons toggles whether the display in real time is showing time code OR user bits. And your user bits are probably 00.

Just press the button marked something like TC/UB once.

Nope. User bits works fine. Just the TC. Stuck on 00:00:00:00. Thanks anyway.

Well, you were right. The UB/TC button on the camera body was set to user bits. Seems like the interior menu is independent. Things are all good now. Thanks for the tip, it led me to the solution.

I am glad that you were able to solve it from my experience.
