DSLR Picture Profiles

Dear All,

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?

Really appreciate any help any one can give!

Thanks

James

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.
