Matching colour balance on multiple cameras

Here’s a tip for checking colour balance matching on
multiple cameras…

When you are using multiple cameras for IMAG etc. it
is important that there is a reasonable match in colour balance between the
cameras, so that mixing between the shots the audience are not distracted by
someone’s blue shirt suddenly becoming purple, or
whatever.

One easy way to check this is
in the soundcheck or rehersal to get your camera operators to all frame up the
same person (or static object) and then use the WIPE transition on your video
mixer, rather than the fade, to wipe halfway across the screen so you get one
camera in one half and the other camera shot in the other half.
