The topic of syncing video and audio is usually just associated with timecode jamming for audio and video. Many starting out or even intermediate sound mixers aren't aware of the advantages of using Genlock and Timecode together.
To understand what is a frame in regrads to time code? we first need to understand there are several varieties of Time Code used across the world and they consist of two variables which I have outlined below:
LTC stands for Longitudinal Time Code. This is a audio signal which transmits a series of square waves from a "Master" device. The Master device would be the main device you are running the timecode from, this could be from mixer to camera or separate timecode box to a mixer or camera.
Timecode is now common throughout all of filmmaking, from low-budget to the highest budgets. Timecode helps save time syncing rushes and waiting for the clapper in post production. But there are still some misunderstandings about timecode which is what is timecode?
There are many different Audio Cable Types that you may need for sound work. Lets take a look at the different types of timecode connectors you may need for connecting / jamming timecode to a camera or other device.
Running from a 664 with the time code source set to internal and at the same frame rate etc... I have a BNC connection at the end of my time code IN/OUT cable from my mixer because then it is easier to get tails for different cameras and extend to whatever length you need in the middle.

If you want a certain make added to this list just comment below and i'll be happy to research but these are the cameras I have worked with in the Past and some that are in a similar range just to give you a guide. Generally I find the professional friendly Manufacturers will generally stick to the same type of option for inputs of timecode and audio IN because they don't want to piss anyone off who is upgrading.
This is a tutorial for being able to send the correct level of audio to the Canon 550D Magic Lantern Audio input via a 3.5mm Jack. There is of course a video at the bottom of this post with my demo but this is all the steps laid out in text form for easier viewing and understanding.
This post is all about Canon 650D Audio and how you can use a radio mic set to wirelessly send your mix track to the Canon 650D Audio tracks. This is going to be very useful in post production to sync up the ISO tracks.
