Matching XH-A1 with HVX-200

Which presets should I use on each camera to get footage that looks the same?

Is there a TrueColor for the HVX200?

Also, is trying to match these two cameras a bad idea or should it be pretty straightforward?

Please review the notes on the Excel spreadsheet (in the Presets download thread). A couple of those presets attempt the Panasonic look (one which comes to mind is PANALOOK by Steven Dempsey -- start with that one and tweak it to taste).

Thanks. Have used panalook (though I prefer panalook 2) but I was under the impression that those only produced an image similar to the DVX. Didn't realize HVX200 was similar enough to DVX for the panalook presets to allow good matching between the HVX and XH-A1.

Most HVX200 footage I've seen looks pretty much like DVX footage, only cleaner. It's a nice look.
