I would like to record audio using my zoom H4N and they edit using Premiere Pro CS5

How to you sync the audio and the video together ?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

This is the equipment combo I use all the time for video. It's easy - use the audio on the 7D as a 'reference' but don't include it in the final movie. Import the video + audio clip from the 7D into Premiere, and also import the audio tracks from your Zoom H4N. Move your video clip onto your timeline for editing. Before you do any thing else, also import your sound track onto an audio line below the audio from your 7D.

Listen to both tracks one at a time (you can selectively silence any audio track by clicking on an icon to the left of the track) to roughly line them up by sliding the Zoom track back and forth. When you get them pretty close - to within a few seconds, listen to the Zoom track to find a loud sound. Expand the timeline to find the visual representation of that sound - a big black spike. Find a similar appearing spike in the 7D's audio track. When they are both in view at the same time, expand your timeline to the max, showing single frames. Slide the Zoom soundtrack right or left until the visual appearances are lined up. Confirm this by listening to both tracks at the same time - you should hear just one sound track.

Now that your Zoom audio is synched you're almost done. Click on your 7D audio/video track to select it, and pull down your 'Clip' menu tab. Select 'unlink' to break the link between the audio and video. Now deselect the 7D tracks (by clicking on the Zoom audio), then select just the audio from the 7D. Hit the 'delete' key to remove that track. Next select BOTH the remaining video track from the 7D and the audio track from the Zoom by shift-clicking to select both. Go into the 'clip' menu tab and select 'link' to link the 7D video with the Zoom audio.

Now you can edit the video track, removing parts and moving it in the timeline, and your Zoom audio will faithfully keep sync'd with you 7D video.

The tried and true clapperboard is probably the most painless way to do this. Just make any sharp, loud sound on camera before you begin the scene (you could even clap, yourself) and, as mentioned by Michael, sync the audio spike with the frame of you clapping/making the noise.

Clapperboard OR get Pluraleyes from Red Giant, and let it do it for you.

I have the latter and edit / produce using Vegas; it works great.
