Matching GY-HD201 and HVX200

Thanks to Paolo and Eric I have finally figuered out how to change my scene file settings and set them to my liking. I have fooled around a little bit and I am now ready to take it to the next level!

I am looking to match my 201 with my Panasonic HVX200 and scene file setting 6, which I am happy with, straight out of the box. Has anybody done this and could you give me some advice how to set my 201?

Thanks for reading this and thanks in advance.

Then you need something like a DSC chart and Wave-form/Vector scope to adjust and match them.

Pardon my ignorance, what is a a DSC chart?

I am afraid I don`t have a Wave-form/Vector scope. Reason I am asking is I want to use them both for my next documentary. Is it impossible to do then?

DSCLabs is a company specialized in creating calibrated Colorbar and Greyscale charts.
http://www.dsclabs.com/colorbar_grayscales.htm

There are two ways to match your camera's:
1. Adjusting through on-board settings of the camera:
Shooting these cards with both camera's and measuring with the scopes it is possbible to 'see' the amount of brightness and color saturation for each color or greyscale chip real-time.
By adjusting the curves and color-matrix of the camera, it is possible with the HD100 for example to adjust and match-up the other camera.
It is a very delicate and time-consuming job to do, as pulling on one side of the color-matrix, other colors are shifted too.
When shooting 'Live events' it is required to match your camera's as close as possible.

2. Adjusting in post.
Another way, is to shoot the DSC-chart a few seconds with both camera's before start shooting.
In post during editing, you can then adjust the colors and brightness to match up your camera's.

At first, these cards, they look expensive. But they are worth every penny. As the end result shooting with different camera's is soo much better. Even when shooting with one camera it is a usefull tool as different scenes with different lighting can be matched in post this way.
