That’s why you use a time code generator to make sure that everything is running at the same frame rate. The generator should be set to match whatever your camera is set to and then everything syncs to it. Not doing this means more work in post to get everything synced up. It’s not impossible because it’s been done for years before the introduction of modern technology.
