This is an overview of how to use Premiere's built in tools (no 3rd party plug-ins) to match two different cameras together.

It covers:
- Color Correction workspace
- Source monitor & markers to see 2 shots at once
- RGB Parade as a visual reference
- Fast Color Corrector to match video levels and saturation

The wide angle is a Canon XH A1 HDV camera (yes, tape!), and the side angle is a Canon 5D Mark II w/ the 70-200mm L. It's important to note that prior to recording, each camera was manually set to the same white balance temperature. Preparation > "fixing it in post" =). The XH A1 was set to some default natural profile, and the 5D shot with the Cinestyle profile to give its footage maximum flexibility for matching to the XH A1 later.
