I'm sure many of you have come across this problem and just wondered what the general consensus is...
I tend to use an EX1 and DSLR when i go out on two camera shoots (that's what ive got, so buying another of the same type isn't an option) and matching the colour and picture in post is a nightmare! Has anyone come across any effective picture profiles to use on either camera or some way to easily match the colour, saturation, exposure in post using FCP or CS5?
I use a profile by doug at vortex media in my EX-1. I don't use profiles on my 5D MKII or 7D, since I just dial in my settings on site using white balance, ISO, F-Stop.
The DSLR's tend to be warmer than my EX-1, so I may tweak my EX-1 to warm it up a bit in post. But, it isn't a nightmare. I've been able to get a pretty good color match. Mostly from shooting experience in the field. I get close and then tweak in post. It's always difficult when your run and gun like me.
