Tape naming

Maybe I overlooked this but I want to name my tapes. Like 01:00:00.00 > 02:00:00.00 and so on before I strart filming. Can I do that in the camera? It's sounds like such a simple feature that the GL2 must support it. If not I can do it in FCP.

Erwin,
No, sorry. The GL2 does not support setting of time code. You'll have to use 1,2,3 or Fred, Mary, John...

If you're fastidious about your log and capture in FCP it will not be any problem, as FCP's project file will keep track of the clip/tape association for you.

You cannot set time code with any Canon video camera.

Is there a particular reason you might want or need this, Erwin?
As Ken pointed out most applications will keep the association
for you.

And welcome from a fellow country man!

Not really. My teacher told me just about all 3 CCD cams had this function and I could not find it on my XM2. But now I just put a sticker on the tape and name it in FCP.

Just as easy!

That's funny, I don't think any DV camera has that option actually.
To my knowledge only professional camera's can set the SMPTE
timecode to begin at.
