FWIW, I spent a good chunk of my time talking with Phil Hodgetts at NAB and one thing he mentioned that surprised me was that instead of the "classic" timecode approach of a black burst generator and running coax everywhere - he tested just bringing a basic GoPro on-set to use its internal clock as the primary timekeeper in a lumberjack environment.

The point is that reference time isn't what it used to be.

Are we that far from our cameras "sensing" the presence of an iWatch on set and letting each device track that time hack internally?

Lumberjack uses clock based "real time" because that supports its mission. But I couldn't help thinking how if devices in general can tap into global time precisely, then the old TC system could actually become obsolete? No?

Just food for thought.
