I just found this article about Canon in camera sync audio on ProVideoCoalition.com and thought I would share it. It turns out that the 5D mark II syncs sound about 2 frames ahead of where it should actually be! All this time I have been manually syncing audio by perfectly lining up the the waveforms for the production audio and camera audio thinking I was being so careful to get it right. I should have been slipping the production audio by 2 frames!
Yet another reason I need a real camera.
