Technicolor CineStyle Preset for the Canon 60D

First time shooting with the Technicolor CineStyle setting/ Pretty interesting setting. It really brings out the detail in low light, especially in the shadows.  This was the first time I had used it. I was in Charlotte, NC on business and downloaded it and installed it in my Canon 60D.  The one thing I did not understand at first was that there are actually two parts to this setting: the actual setting that goes in the camera and the S-Curve/LUT plugin for your editing program.  You don’t have to use the LUT plugin offered by CineStyle but you will need to do some color grading to make it look good.  The setting in the camera by itself looks rather flat.  The easiest way to think of it is the setting in the camera (CineStyle) is optimized to give you the most leeway in color grading.  If you don’t want to do any color grading at all then I would probably not use this setting.

Quick edit from a night drive through downtown Charlotte, NC. Camera mounted on tripod inside vehicle shooting through sunroof straight up.
