    Still learning the 5D and audio question?

    Hi,

    I'm still learning my way around the 5d and am having an audio issue that I'm not able to understand. When I record video straight from the internal mic and download into my editor the video's audio is synced. When I attach the Rode Mic, record and download into my editor, the audio is about three frames off. I'm not sure what the problem is. I'm using FCP 6. thanks

        I would ask you that same question. And also... did you have the problem with multiple shots? Have you had the problem again since turning the camera off and on again? What firmware are you running?

            The 2 (or so) out of sync difference between audio and video is known and common. It's just something you gotta deal with.

              It's probably the A/D audio converter in the camera that is causing the latency. If it's just an offest, you can nudge the audio back 3 frames. This is common with lower cost audio A/D converters, which is what is most likely in the camera. A lot of people shoot double system, meaning they record a reference track on the camera, and then use a professional audio recorder separately (with the proper mics and audio equipment), and then sync up the audio in FCP or AVID.
