That's the whole point of timecode. Value for the Sony's with freerun is that with the remote lots of cameras can be reset to zero in free run mode then started and stopped at will. Edius for example will then sync all up on the timeline for multicam edit. NX5U, NX30U, EA50.s etc will do this together. Not quite as accurate as a full genlock but close.

Re: Info on syncing two ea50s

Thanks Ron

That might be quite useful at weddings so I can sync cutaways more easily. So to summarise you set both cameras to freerun and then point the remote at both and reset?? I must look at Sony Vegas to see what facility is there for timecode syncing as I don't use Edius.

Sometimes the celebrant steps to the side to do a reading so I need to use the second camera so that would maybe be easier than audio sync

Yes that is correct. Free run then use remote to reset. This will reset both cameras to zero timecode and then they will run free from zero.
