    I'm looking to Canon colors STRAIGHT OUT of my GH2 for video. Or at least, as close as possible.

    I know there's white balance settings and film settings you can mess around with, but I haven't been able to get the balance right.

    Does anybody know what settings I can use to get Canon Colors?

    DXO Optics Pro lets you interchange one cameras look for another if both are supported.

    Yep, Fred is right, DXO does some great work on making one camera look like another. For in camera, I think it will be a bir harder as there aren't many color controls on the Panasonic bodies and they run really cool. You could tinker with WB but it would end up different for each scene.

    To get somewhere nearer a semblance of 'Canon colours' (I do know what he means) I suggest two things ;
    1. Choose a whitebalance and stick with it, do not let the camera Auto-WB.
    2. Go to the Whitebalance adjustment screen and bump up Amber two steps (then try more, later) on your chosen Whitebalance.

    Try it, see if the adjustments have stuck and are apparent in your video.

    Hmmm, interesting suggestion. I'll be sure to give that a shot.

    Anything else?
