Back in the "old" days, (you know, way back in the mid-80's) I knew a few
engineers who made a good living providing 655-modified monitor and 3/4"
playback for just such occasions - the monitor sync is to 24fps, and solves
the problem nicely. I used this when I worked on Family Ties at
Paramount. Or cancel the bar with the variable shutter technique
using a digitach-equipped camera. Depends on whether you have control of
the on-camera video stuff, and your budget, I suppose.
