Camera Color Matching Sony to Canon
matching cameras course tn

Do you shoot and edit your own to camera interviews, testimonals, weddings, corparate videos? Having a hard time matching up to cameras when shooting a two camera interview? Spending so much time matching that you are not getting any editing done?

This is a technical course which is 100% scientific and 0% artistic. I will never say I am moving this control because it "feels right". I use scientific methods that you can watch and learn and most importantly repeat yourself. You will be able to match two cameras without being a professional colorist.

My workflow only takes about 8 minutes to match two different cameras for an interview.

I match Sony to Canon in this course but you can use this workflow for any other camera combination.

This is an advanced course, I expect you to own two cameras because you might do a lot of interviews. You will need to know how to read waveform and vectorscopes.

This course uses Davinci Resolve (free version), however I will show you how to create a lut from Resolve that can be applied in Premiere Pro or Finalcut.

How close can we get matching cameras? I aim for a Delta E of less than 2, which means that most people will not see a difference between the two camera.

While this course is primary about matching two cameras, I will be talking about the major difference between Sony and Canon.
