Cinestyle Testing (5DMKII)

Screengrab from 5DMKII color profile cinestyle testIt’s often a question of fighting the native codec when it comes to the 5D. The issue isn’t that the camera doesn’t produce visual images (it does, and I use it all the time) but that the camera mangles the footage right before the files are written to CF cards. Maintaining what little data you can in an H264 is something of an art, and there have been various color curve settings in camera that help to save the image, if only a little. My personal favorite is the technicolor Cinestyle profile  and it just so happens that this test features the Cinestyle profile. The tests were shot by Mike Kobal, one with cinestyle ungraded and one with a grade applied after. Without further ado, feast your eyeballs:
