Can I daisy chain TC if I am using 4 units (3 FS7 ...

Can I daisy chain TC if I am using 4 units (3 FS7 cameras and an external audio recorder), by using either the genlock port as in or out and the TC port as in or out, or must I use a DA to feed the source TC and run to each unit separately?
Asked by: David
That is not possible. The Timecode connection can be either an input or output. You would not be able to change the genlock to a timecode output.

question

Is the 240 fps slow motion relevant to PAL systems (25p) or just ntsc (30p)? And only 200fps for PAL?
Asked by: Marc
This Sony XDCA-FS7 is principally for getting RAW to an external recorder, ProRes internally and for mounting a big battery. It is not involved in high FPS rate which the camera can do by itself. The highest PAL rate is 150FPS.
