In the Sony FDR-X3000 action cam user manual, it says:
About time code: Time code is a useful function for advanced image editing, which records hours/minutes/seconds/frames on the image data.
About user bit: User bit is a function that can record information (8-digit hexadecimal numbers) such as date/time/scene number. This function is useful for editing movies created using two or more cameras.
That's all it says.
For time code to be useful, don't multiple devices have to be synchronized, as with a master and slaves? Is the Sony X-3000 able to synchronize multiple cameras somehow? What would the benefit be of using this time code vs. just lining up multiple clips in my editing software (as with a hand-clap audio cue, for example) and cutting away?
