Canon T2i 550D Tutorial – Comparing CineStyle to Stock Image Designs

25

www.learningdslrvideo.com I am working on a training video in my studio and I want tweak the lighting and the look a bit more. Since picture styles can greatly effect the look of the lighting I wanted to try out the new Technicolor CineStyle picture style and compare it to the stock picture styles. I have been testing the CineStyle style a lot but I feel I still have a lot to learn with it, so I will be a more thorough video on it later.

    Are picture styles like Marvel, and Technicolor CineStyle safe?

    For the final comparison at 1:42 you mention “lets compare that to the Cinestyle, here is the Cinestyle with Saturation and Sharpness added” but the text just says contrast -4. What were the real settings for the Saturation and Sharpness? Very good video Dave. Shooting with Cinestyle is completely pointless if your just going to throw a LUT on as you’ve proven here that Landscape or even the Standard profile is better. I’ll make a video tutorial soon which will highlight this issue. Cheers!

    Hey Dave,
    Someone may have asked this question before, but have you ever tested for hot pixels? I did a 30 second shot of the stars and noticed hot pixels on my t2i. So I decided to test it with the lens cap on in a dark room to make sure there was no glare from any light and pow! More hot pixels. I’m thinking of trying to clean it but not sure that will work.

    You are correct. Landscape lands better results even for color correcting.
    If you want to correct then Try the Sharp 3, Contrast 2, Sat 0 or middle default, and Tone at 0 or default.
    Thanks Dave

    I don’t think cinestyle is good at all. Just look at what you did, you take the cinestyle to look like landscape with post LUT and sharpening… but as you do that, you’re losing a lot of color and definition that wasn’t recorded in the first place. So you have banding(8 bit minus first 16 bits) & artifacts(4:2:0!). I think it’s better to shoot neutral at most if color correcting (ie:blockbuster look).
    I say all this cause I’m sooting a feature length cheap film and want to do it right.

    I think this is a pretty good example why to use the Cinestyle. You can do everything in post and don’t have to mess around with the Picture Styles while shooting. According to the manual, landscape gives you a lot of green and blue. My guess is, if you color grade your Cinestyle shot with some green and blue added, you get a pretty “Landscape Picture Style” like look.

    the thing is we do need the opening for tweaking when editing the video later on. that ‘opening’ isnt anywhere available inside a software after it being shot improperly.

    I’m just learning to use the video mode with my 550D, and I was thinking… This is just in-camera post processing, right? Couldn’t all this be done just as good in video editing software?

    Great video! I was curious about this. I still just use my little HV 30 for Cine style, and the T2i for everything else.

    I might have to look at that one. Does it have full manual control for video?
