Mixing XL-H1 and F-350

Hi,

has anyone mixed material created with Canon´s XL-H1 and Sony´s F-350 yet? If yes, how does it compare, how does it look like? I´m just asking as I might have to mix these two sources in a multi-cam project soon and was curious about how it might look.

I will definitely try out before the shoot myself anyway but maybe somebody has experience with that?! Surely some serious colour correction has to be done in post, right?!

Thanks,
Emanuel

They have a quite different look. The XL-H1 looks more "electronic". The colours are different the H1 having a slight magenta tint. The F350 is cleaner. The difference isn't massive and with a bit of tweaking I am sure a reasonable match could be achieved.

I've shot recently a documentary where both cam's where involved. Prior to the shoot we did not had the time to match the cams via the settings. A colorist in post (Da Vinci) had to do a lot of correcting on the material. Basically he had to blur the XDCAM a little bit to match the softness of the H1.
