The Tentacle Sync E Timecode Generator with Bluetooth is a budget-friendly timecode generator designed for use with cameras ranging from mirrorless and DSLRs up to Cinema and ENG camcorders. Key features include:

  • Single Timecode Generator Unit

  • Bluetooth Control via iOS or Android App

  • 23.98/24/25/29.97/30 fps TC Rates

  • Master Clock & Jam-Sync Modes

Compact & Versatile Timecode Generator. The compact, lightweight Tentacle Sync E Timecode Generator w/Bluetooth offers app based setup and monitoring, enabling you to easily view frame-accurate readings on your iOS or Android mobile devices as well as MacOS devices (additional software required). Extend Bluetooth-broadcast timecode to virtually any mobile device. The Sync E uses a standard 3.5mm cable, ensuring compatibility with a wide array of devices without the need for an adapter. We include a lock clamp to make sure the cable stays put and timecode is uninterrupted.

Master Clock and Jam-Sync Modes. The Tentacle E functions as a master clock or to jam-sync to an external timecode source, and the device is very accurate with less than one frame of drift over a 24 hour period. Compatible with pro equipment, the Tentacle outputs SMPTE-12M-standard LTC timecode and supports all SMPTE TC rates. When using the generator with DSLR and mirrorless cameras, the Tentacle E’s integrated, high-quality mic enables you to record both timecode and scratch audio simultaneously.

Up to 35 Hours of Runtime. Each Tentacle E TC generator is powered by a built-in LiPo battery with a runtime lasting up to 35 hours. The battery charges via the unit’s USB Type-C interface.

Easy to Mount. We include a 1/4"-20 female and cold shoe mounting adapter to secure the Tentacle to your camera. Our Tentacle Sync E generators have had their hook-and-loop fasteners removed in lieu of our mounting solution.
