View Full Version : Sony F3 - Ki Pro Mini Odd Clips

On a shoot recently with the Sony PMW - F3 and Ki Pro Mini, using 3 x SanDisk 64GB 90MB/s cards. The Ki Pro Mini was triggered by the timecode from the camera. When the footage was brought into the edit, there appeared to be 7 clips that were exactly 25 frames. No footage was missing but it seems odd that these clips appeared.

I have heard that pushing the preview on the camera disturbs the timecode and produces odd clips.

Hope someone can help.

Matthew T. - If the Ki Pro Mini was set for Arm Recording and it was presented with incrementing timecode, then it would produce a recording. Via timecode, there isn't any way to differentiate a recording from playback or review of a clip on the camera.

If you need assistance with the Ki Pro Mini, feel free to contact AJA Technical Support.

Hope this is helpful,
