      My guess is there isn’t much you can do beyond white balancing. It’s hard to even get two of the same camera model to match perfectly.

      Typical workflows include some level of color correction anyway. So instead of sweating the cameras so much, I suggest white balancing and then doing some color correction when you’re finished editing.

      I used both on the same project and Rob is right, no setting. They are close though but angle of light can really throw off colour capture. I used a clapperboard that has the colours across the top and, of course, white balance (unless you are doing a candle light shot then you want it to look yellowish).

      Manually white balance and do not depend on any of the preset scene settings. Wherever possible ensure camera setting are set the same. When you say online are you referring to after post or are you streaming live? If it’s going on after post you can get the color balance pretty close. On a recent project we used a T3, (2) 7Ds and several 5D’s we were able to match the color in post very very close (Adobe PP CS5.5) – the average person couldn’t tell different cameras were used.
