Chapter 2. Your Camera > Assignment 3: Working with Your Timecode

Assignment 3: Working with Your Timecode

Switch your camcorder from Camera mode to VCR mode and find the Rewind control. Now rewind the tape you just shot (back in Assignment 2) and watch it. When you press Play, you will notice the timecode number up at the top-right corner of the LCD screen. It starts at 00:00 and goes up. It was there when you were shooting, and it is still there, now permanently linked to the images on the tape. I want you to watch the material twice: once to just look at the video you shot. You'll be curious and it's fine to watch it. Now press Rewind and play your video again, only this time concentrate only on the timecode number at the top. Just watch it click away while you play the tape.
