I used a DAT recorder on my last film and the camera guys used Canon XH A1s. When the DAT audio was pulled off and given to me, it synched exactly. I don’t know if it wascaptured through somethingspecial or what was done(I wasn’t there during capturing), but it worked in the editing.
Werecorded on a lav mic hooked up to one camera andthein-camera mic on the other camera as well in case the DAT failed. In the end, however, we ended up usingthe DAT audio for most of the film(I must have done a good job during production, don’t you think?).
However, FallingStarFilms has a good point.Havingaudio and video not sync upin the end would be awful.
