No problem if you're runni

No problem if you're running short segments but for longer interviews be thoughtful about your choice. Mine was under $200 Here's a response from the manufacturer of my recorder. "In general, there is no handheld recorder at this price point that will run in perfect sync over long time periods for two reasons. 1) No common clock source. Although both devices are using 48kHz as a clock reference, the fact that they are independent of one another will show up over time. Using higher end equipment, the audio device is given a video clock reference from the video device or both are fed from a common clock source (black burst generator). 2) No common time-code source. Either one device feeding the other or both being recorded simultaneously from a time-code generator. For short form recordings, this drift is normally not an issue. Do an independent search on the internet and you'll see that many users that shoot this way ("running wild") and are doing longer form recordings are using a program called "Dual Eyes" to deal with the inevitable drift that will occur." Pretty helpful info and other than that the device is excellent and I'm trying Pluraleyes this weekend.
