Solution for 5D Mark II double system audio drift described  
Tuesday, June 9, 2009 | by Rob Galbraith
Bruce Sharpe, CEO of Singular Software and creator of the PluralEyes video/audio synchronization application for Final Cut Pro users, has written a helpful tutorial describing how to configure Apple's professional video editor so that video recorded with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and audio recorded separately will stay in sync over time.

The solution, as it happens, is quite simple, and should eliminate the need to apply a 99.9% speed adjustment to audio clips, he says.

Sharpe's tutorial is aimed at users of Final Cut Pro 6, but in a quick test here, with a twelve minute video clip from the 5D Mark II, audio recorded with a Zoom H4n and the older Final Cut Pro 5.1.4, it was possible to make the same configuration changes and achieve the same successful result. The only apparent difference is the lack of Final Cut Pro 6's Apple ProRes 422 codec in the earlier version; in 5.1.4, we chose Apple Intermediate Codec instead.
