This " problem " is as old as sync sound for film. Unless you have time-coded sound which conforms to time-coded footage, the time-honored way is to use a slate and clap-stick. The camera shoots the information on the slate, the assistant announces the scene/take number and than " claps " the " sticks ". Okay, so you're " running and gunning " and slating would be a drag. The next easiest way to keep track of sound and video would be to start you camera and recorder, put a sync mark at the head, and then never stop either the camera or the recorder until you're finished with a " scene ".
