Can you elaborate a bit? I've been a Canon user for 13 years, and I've never heard of a time code. If I'm going to try to help you, I have no idea where to start.

Sure, with the 70D, you could go into the menu and under sound settings, you could select time code. This would embed the time code into the video file filmed with the DSLR. This is helpful when you are filming with multiple cameras. However, it seems that with the 80D they have removed this feature for no reason.
Ah, OK, I didn't get it because I don't do video. But I have heard of that synchronization feature, now that you mention it. I dunno; maybe it's one of those seemingly indefensible cost-saving measures, like leaving an IR receiver off of the 50D and AFMA off of the 60D. But before you give up, make sure you're reading the full version of the manual (from the CD or the Canon Web site), not the abbreviated printed version.

I share your pain. The 70D didn't have a headphone port to monitor the audio so I have held off buying this for the 80D, not thinking for a second that in finally adding the headphone port, they'd then go and remove the time code facility!!!. Here's hoping for a firmware update. Totally crazy that they gear this new model up to be a perfect mid-range video recorder (not personally fussed about the lack of 4k) to find they drop a feature which is so fundamental to post audio/video sync.... Please Canon, release a firmware update to honour your press release and not deter potential purchases!
