Matching XH-A1 and XM2/GL2

Hi all,

Shooting an event this weekend and using the XH-A1 as the main cam and running an unmanned XM2 (GL2) on sticks as backup in faux 16:9. Would ideally like to get the images looking as close as possible in cam.

The GL2 image is pretty punchy straight out of the cam whereas the XH-A1 without preset is pretty flat - not a bad thing. For single cam stuff I usually use the panalook2 preset and then do some light correction in post.

Does anybody have experience matching these particular cams and can recommend a suitable preset for the XH-A1?

VividRGB is a little too extreme so I may dial things back a bit and use that, or maybe shoot with panalook2 and then bring the XM2 back in post. Anyway - any advice/suggestions appreciated!

Cheers,

Matt.
