Camera settings to combine footage from the 6D and XA20

Does anyone shoot with a 6D and a XA20? I'm looking for camera settings that will make it easier to combine these two in post with the least amount of color correction/grading. If you shoot with a 5D3 and a XA25, feel free to share too and I'll try it out. Otherwise, I'll be happy to take a wild guess from someone here. Might be better than mine.

6D + hfg25 same, 6d sharp all way down, contrast all way down, sats 2. hfg25 TV mode 50 shutter speed, daylight white balance works best, then grade the 6d similar to the footage on the hfg25.
Another one is hfg25 normal just TV mode and 6d, sharp at 2 contrast 2 sats 2. Another one just neutral on the 6d and grade
That's the best there is but they nearly look the same after a bit of work.
Here is my latest with the two cams.

Thanks Steve. I'll check it out. With my weather here, I won't be doing much outside for the next couple days. I enjoyed the video. Nice work! Question: which one do you fly and use on the slider? So far I have just used the 6D but I have been tempted to try the XA20.

Byron I use the hfg25 on the slider unless its close slides then the 6d so I can get that lovely bokeh behind, usually inside. Outside long shot slides then the camcorder. steve
