Canon and Technicolor have teamed up to produce “CineStyle”, a freely downloadable picture style for Canon EOS DSLR cameras.
The style uses the notion of a flat ‘digital negative’ as its basis and manages to extend the latitude of EOS cameras even closer towards what can be recorded with traditional film. Furthermore, the style is supported by an S-curve look-up table (LUT) for use with Final Cut Pro.
The image produced by the style is very thin, grey almost, which is the perfect starting point when colour correction (CC) is an integral part of your workflow.
If you’re unfamiliar with CC, or are happy to use images straight out of the camera, this is not the picture style for you but it’s a great picture style, when a digital negative is called for.
