Matching FS700 and FS100?

I'm considering getting an FS700 in addition to the FS100 I currently have.

Anyone know how well do these cameras match? For the last year I've been using my 5DM2 as my B cam and have not been pleased with trying to match the images. I'm hopeful the FS700 will work better.

Anyone cutting these together? What PP are you using on them?


Thanks!

how do you like the fs100? im shooting alot of weddings and would love to use this cam but it would be difficult for me to get a smooth zoom doing it manually.is there a power zoom lens available? also ive heard its not easy tohandhold this camera comfortably.im using the ex1r which is very easy for me to use it handheld for the past 3 years

One of the companies I shoot for has two FS700's. For one of their corporate clients they like to do 3-camera interview setups, and for a while were using a dslr for the third camera - the matching on the dslr was problematic at best. On one occasion they were able to borrow an FS100 for the third camera. As I recall, we spent about 20-30 minutes A-B-C'ing the three cameras to get them to match slosely. (The FS700's started with a custom altered picture profile and we were using cinegammas on all the cameras, so it was a lot of adjusting on all sides of the equation) We were able to send all 3 cameras to the same monitor (a 17" Sony OLED) and basically were eye-matching while using the monitor's built-in wavefrom. The editor said the resulting looks matched almost perfectly, so in our case it was possible to get a very good match.

Obviously the match worked better under controlled lighting conditions. We did find that it seemed to work best when we eliminated any extreme highlights from the FS100 shots -- the FS700's seem to handle highlights better.
