Setting the Time Code with the XH A1 and XH G1

Solution

Selecting the Frame Setting

When recording in a mode other than SD at a frame rate of 24F, you can select between a drop frame or non-drop frame time code.

Open the menu and select [SIGNAL SETUP]. Select the [TIME CODE] submenu and then [FRAME SETTNG]. Select a setting option and close the menu.

When you select the [NON DROP] setting or when you select 24F frame rate in SD mode, "NDF" will appear on the side panel display.

Selecting the Running Mode

When recording in a mode other than SD at a frame rate of 24F, you can select the running mode of the camcorder's time code. You can enter the initial value for the [FREE-RUN] and the [REC-RUN PS.] settings.

[REC-RUN]: The time code runs only when recording.
[REC-RUN PS.]: The time code runs only when recording starting from a preset value.
[FREE-RUN]: The time code runs regardless of the operation of the camcorder.

  1. Open the menu and select [SIGNAL SETUP]. Select the [TIME CODE] submenu and then [COUNT-UP]. Select a setting option and close the menu.
    [REC-RUN]: Close the menu.
    [REC-RUN PS.], [FREE-RUN]: Continue the procedure below to set the initial value.
  2. Select [SET].
    The hours display flashes.
  3. Set the time code's initial value.
    Turn the SELECT/SET dial to set the value for the hours and press the dial. The next field of the display starts flashing. Set the value for the minutes, seconds and frames in the same way.
  4. Close the menu.
