The camera will automatically detect the is timecode and it lock the camera. That allows roving cameras to independently start and stop recording while storing perfect sync timecode in the file metadata, allowing powerful multi camera workflows such as music festivals, weddings and interviews. DaVinci Resolve 16.1 will automatically find and sync the shots from all cameras so you can complete editing quickly even when your shoot generated thousands of media files.
