Chapter 2. Your Camera > Assignment 4: Break the Timecode

Assignment 4: Break the Timecode

Play your tape until you pass the end of your last shot and head into the blue. After a couple of seconds of this, press Stop. When your LCD screen goes blue, the timecode number disappears. Now switch back to Camera mode and shoot some more. Walk into your living room, sit down, zoom the camera all the way out (as wide as it can go), and shoot anything you think is framed nicely. Don't move the camera, just hold still while you record. You are not only taping a scene from your house on this random day; you are also recording the ambient sounds in the house. While more or less ignoring the picture on the LCD, record the sound in your home right now, for about 10 seconds. Now stop recording.

Turn your camera back to VCR mode, flip the LCD screen open so you can review what you've taped, and make sure the timecode shows in a corner of the frame.
