Matching cameras on set when you're in a multi-camera situation is really important. There's nothing worse than the sinking feeling when you get back to your studio and every camera looks different. So when it comes to matching cameras, there's a few important things to consider. First, if you're using the same model of camera, make sure that you're using the same ISO settings, the same shutter settings. More importantly, make sure that all of your cameras are using the same frame rate. I've seen a lot of productions have a lot of hassles because different cameras were shooting at different frame rates. If you're using cameras that are a different make and model, you're going to get a little bit more technical.
And this is where Scopes can be your friends. Having onset Scopes such as Waveforms and Vector-scopes, can make it much easier to balance and match cameras from one camera to another. And at the very least, you need to have a white balance card on set. Nothing ruins a production more than cameras that have really bad white balance.
