I am not sure if this is the best place to ask this question, but hopefully someone here can give me some advice. I have a device hooked up to a data acquisition system that can provide sync out signal and record sync in signals. I need to synchronize my recordings with this device to a video feed. I am having trouble finding a camera that can provide a sync signal or any other good way to accomplish this. Thanks for your help.

Cameras that support syncing will probably do so via an external signal. Google "genlock" or "timecode sync" or "external trigger" to get started. For instance, here's a link to external trigger modes for Point Grey cameras whose image sensors a lot of research roboticists use.

For the sync signal, if the sync out on the DAQ is not sufficient, google "sync generator". You should get relevant hits from the video & audio recording as well as electronics test worlds.
