matching profiles for canon and sony

So I'm filming a mini docu using my sony a6000 and canon mark II. Since the sony will be mounted on my gimbal, and the canon is for close ups I have to use both. Is there any way setting them up so the colours will be as matching as possible? Which colour profiles / settings should I use to avoid a completely different footage look? Currently I'm using Cinestyle on the Canon. thank you!

You could use FilmConvert for grading in your postproduction so your colors will mach very nicely. It has cameraprofiles made for the most common cameras.

There are different way, film convert is one, using a color chart is probably the best. You can also grade yourself. I wouldn't use cinestyle as there no equivalant on the a6000 and it is not be the best gamma to work with anyway, it makes footage more grainy and blurry that it already is, as a general rule I would advise to use one of vision color gamma who made to work with the limitation of canon week compression. Here If I were you I would try to get a similar look playing with the profile picture so the work of maching then is not too hard.

Your biggest problem in trying to match Canon and Sony is the base DNA of the cameras. Canon is warm & creamy where Sony is more cool & crispy. Same goes for glass, Canon vs. Zeiss...both great but have different looks.
