    We use either Sony PMW-500 or Sony FX9 cameras when shooting in the field. Audio is run through Sound Device mixers and sent to the cameras. The cameras and mixers are tetherered together.

    We would like to get away from the tether situation. What gear are people using in the field to sync this equipment? Do you run into issues with drift and if so how do you work around it? How do you track takes from the camera to the mixer so they can be synced easily in post?

    I use the scratch track with a hand clap or slate to sync clips in post. The best and most affordable wireless time sync solution for shoots and post is the Tentacle Sync available at B&H Photo. Excellent system IMHO. https://tentaclesync.com
