The Lanc Shepherd has a larger LCD screen that gives the mis-sync in a fraction as well as a decimal number in miliseconds to 3 decimal places.
You push the on/off buttom, and get a display information:
There is the range 0ms up to 1ms in 0.1 ms steps:
"." shows a missync below 1 ms
"3." means that the missync is between 0.2 ms and 0.3 ms
Here you have the steps ".", "1.", "2.", "3." and so on.
For the range 1ms up to 4ms you see the number without the ".", so "1", "2", "3" or "4". Also here, "4" for example means that the missync is between 3ms and 4ms
For a missync larger then 4ms the unit displays "E" (error). The controler works up to 10 ms(PAL) and 8.34 ms (NTSC) missync.
The manual states that a missync > 1/250 s = 4ms is too bad for streesocopic recording. But Werner Bloos told me that he would not accept a missync > 1ms.
