Syncing GH2 video and Zoom H2n audio

Ho folks,

I have now shot a couple of interviews using this setup. Frame rate is 1080 24p. I can easily sync the audio and video, but after a few minutes, they drift apart. By 30 minutes, they are waaay off. Am I missing something here? Is there a protocol I need to follow?

Thanks in advance...

Jeff

Sampling rates must match as another member has mentioned.

Is running a line out from the H2n into the GH2 an option for you?

I use a Sescom Line to Mic adapter, with a 25ft extension with my H2n, For most situations it works pretty good.
Although the wave file from the H2n is better, but with a little testing you can put that available stereo track in the AVCHD to good use.

With out careful attention to the subtle differences, and comparing wave forms on a frame level, it's hard to tell the 2 audio recordings apart.

The recorded H2n track on the AVCHD sounds pretty good.

I mount the H2n to a mic stand with boom arm, as you would do with a Boom Mic.

If you have an available monopod and an extra hand, you can do a decent run and gun using the H2n on a monopod to get it up and out of view.

Thanks Travis, I do have the hardware that you mentioned, and yes, I really should record the H2n output into thte GH2. But, no, I do not have an extra hand! LOL!
