How do I get that "Canon" look?

I want my colors (JUST COLORS) to be more like a Canon's using my GH2 and Adobe Premeire.

How do I do that?

Some examples of what I want to recreate.

Re: How do I get that "Canon" look?

Complex topic. Basically you need to setup the camera through the White Balance 4 color picker, record with a high bitrate, put the footage in premiere and learn the color correction tools to be able to bend the image to match a Canon image.

You need a Canon reference to know what you are even shooting for as well.

I would say it might be more useful to first color correct for true colors, then grade for a certain look. You find that each manufacturer has their own opinion of "true color" as well as the pricepoint of that certain camera. A $1,000 Panasonic camera will not create color like a Varicam... So rather than go for the look first, make accurate color your first objective, then color to taste. Shooting at a high bitrate will give you more information in post to work with. Less compressed means more color information.

Those stills seem a little desaturated to me. Maybe if you bump up the saturation a bit?

I should mention I'm shooting videos, not taking stills.
