    I'm in the acceptance phase now, so just need to decide between tentacle and ultrasync...

    Paul it depends which Alexa. The Mini doesn’t NOT have the same clock as the full size cameras and are notionally “not good” aka a system clock, not the seperate clock the full size bodies have.

    Thanks everyone. I'm in a slightly more knowledge place now when it comes to sync/TC!

    I guess it's turned into a Tentacle vs Ultrasync situation - does anyone have any opinion. I've used tentacles but one of the benefits (built in mic) doesn't really apply in red land.

    cheers

    Ive used the tentacles for many years now without issues. They're so small!
