by Preston Kanak
With the introduction of the new Cinema Picture Profile, I wanted to do a quick post on MY favorite picture styles as well as how to use/install them. Picture Profiles/Styles (PP) are meant to optimize the dynamic range in the image. One of the hardest parts about them though is picking the right one for the right job. I find that it all depends on shooting conditions and final output.
For the longest time, I had no idea that you could load PP’s onto your camera that were not pre-loaded. I also did not really think that the results would be much different. Wow, was I ever wrong!
For some shooting conditions, I find that some of the PP’s perform worse than others. At any given time, I will have three PP’s loaded on my camera to switch between.
Final output also determines which PP I will be using. For all projects that I am producing, I always shoot the flattest image I can get. However, when shooting for others, if the turn around time does not allow for colour timing/correction, I will shoot less flat (typically neutral).
Now you ask, why is a flat profile important? Well, when you bake-in the color/contrast settings into an image (pre-set PP’s), you are unable to retrieve information that would be available if you had shot flat. Say your sky is blown out, but you wish you could see some of the clouds that were there on the day. With a baked-in image style, you are not able to recover it. With a flat image, you have a much better chance of recovering the clouds — OR if you under or over-expose something, you have a better chance to recover information that would otherwise be lost.
Comparing Picture Profiles (Cinestyle, Cinema, Marvel & Neutral)
Vimeo has developed a support group for DSLR shooters. I recommend that you have a look at some of the videos that have been added as they will definitely help!

How to Use/Install
Installing your PP’s is very simple and only takes a few minutes. For the process, you will need your camera, a USB cable, and the EOS Utility software.
Here are some short step-by-step instructions:
1. Install or update the latest version of Canon’s EOS Utility for your PC or Mac. Make sure that you have updated the software so you don’t run into problems!
2. Connect your camera to your computer via USB and switch it on.
3. Start the EOS Utility and click the menu button “Camera Settings / Remote Shooting”
4. Select the camera icon (red) and ‘Picture Style’.
5. Click ‘Detail set’.
6. In the new window that appears, Select one of the User Def. items from the drop down menu at the top of the screen, and then click the ‘Open’ button.
7. In the dialog window that opens, select the Picture Style file you have previously downloaded. This will transfer the style to your camera.
8. The uploaded profile will now reside under the selected User Def (1.3) picture profile on your camera.
9. Disconnect your camera and you should be good to go!
Special Note: Installing on 600D / t2i
ASH commented below that the 600D / t2i installation is a little different. I have included his comments below.
“For 600D it is slightly different. I loaded the picture style onto the camera using canon utility while in the P (or M) setting (in movie setting it wont let you load them).
Then once the profile is loaded, disconnect the camera from the computer, set the camera to movie mode on the dial, press the menu button and navigate to the picture style option. Click on the picture style option using the set button, scroll to the user def that you saved the picture profile to (1,2 or 3), press info, click on where it says picture style user def 1 (or your relevant user def number)using the set button, then you get two arrows up and down, using the up down buttons on your camera scroll to the saved picture profile that you desire then click set”.
One of the toughest things once you have uploaded your PP’s is to set exposure and focus. Shooting with ‘dull’ or ‘flat’ images makes focus much harder and you are more likely to need an external monitoring system (EVF or Monitor) to ensure that you have sharp focus. Also, exposure is also much more difficult as you have no true black point as reference and have a higher chance of either under or over exposing your image.
Shane Hurlbut states that, when shooting with DSLR’s, it is key to have a PP that you want your film to look like dialed into your camera. He states that it is key to have this ‘mock PP’ to light and expose with. Before you start rolling, once you have set exposure, roll your slide over to the flat PP that you plan on using (be it Marvel, Cinema, or Cinestyle). By doing this, you will have more wiggle room in post. Great word of advice!
If you are still a little confused, watch the video below.

Picture Profile’s: My USER DEFINED SETTINGS
I am aware that the list below is not the complete list and varies from person to person, but they are the ones that I use on a frequent basis. I would love any recommendations for USER DEFINED settings that you may use!
Before the release of the Cinema PP, Neutral flat was one of my three defined settings. Although neutral flat is perceived differently by many, here are the settings I used.
Color Tone: 0
Sample Video Shot using Neutral Picture Profile
Release Date: January 19th 2011
Another PP I use is Marvel Cine. It was one of the first ones that I tried out when I started to use PP’s, and I was very pleased with the results. It is definitely not as flat as Technicolor’s Cinestyle but offers a great alternative in some situations.
About Marvel Cine
Marvels Cine uses 10 curve nodes and is based on the Standard style as a base instead of the Neutral style. The style is slightly more colourful than other flat styles, because it uses the Standard style as a basis. I find that this profile comes in handy when shooting indoors.
Marvel Cine vs. Technicolor’s Cinestyle by Mike@Indieshorts
I know a lot of people have adopted the Cinestyle PP for virtually all shoots, but I find that Marvel’s Cine still comes in handy in some situations, especially when there is no time for grading on a project (although it should be graded!). Also, for footage that I pass off to others to colour correct, I tend to shoot with Marvel’s Cine as it is easier to bring out the colours for people unfamiliar with the Cinestyle profile on DSLR’s. That’s just my experience though and may differ for others! To download the Marvel-Cine picture style, click here.

Technicolor – Cinestyle
Release Date: April 30th, 2011
For virtually all of my shoots that I produce, the Technicolor PP is my first choice, especially when matching 5D footage with other flavours of Canon DSLR’s (7D, 60D, etc). It gives you the most flexibility out of all profiles, and I find that it comes in handy especially when shooting landscapes (ability to maintain detail in both sky and foreground).

Cinema Picture Profile
Release Date: September 7th, 2011
The Cinema Picture Profile (previously known as EPIC) is the newest of the bunch and although providing a flat image, it is unique in how it deals with contrast. Personally, I am very happy with the results so far. Will it replace my Cinestyle PP? Probably not yet, but it will definitely replace the Marvel Cine PP that I have been using for some shoots!
However, the CINEMA picture style is not free. It is priced at $19 which is not much at all and I personally think it is worth the money! (It is only $19!) To purchase the Cinema picture style, click here.

I have added this section to the post that I will keep adding to as PP’s are recommended. If you have any questions, please let me know!
Flat PP by Jorgen Escher
Notes From Jorgen
I have developed a new type of flat picture profile for the Canon “d” series video DSLR cameras. This profile has been devised and tested using the Canon 5DmkII, a MacBeth colour card, two different calibrated light sources (3200k & 5600k soft floods), Adobe Color, Adobe Photoshop and a few software tools I have developed myself. This picture profile uses 10 S-curve node points and mathematically wraps correctly around the existing build-in Standard Profile S-Curve.
Goals were striving for correct colorimetric reproduction (no weird chroma artifacts), no gaps or bumps in the resulting curve, linear behaviour in the skin-color-exposure range and a few more points that are described in more detail by Martin Beek on his weblog http://marvelsfilm.wordpress.com. There you can download the picture profile and read about it’s uses for video shooters (I’m a colorist and mathematician, not a film maker…).
Go have a look and use it for free in your camera – happy shooting!
Crooked Path Flat
Notes from Crooked Path
– Based of the FAITHFUL profile. Faithful is just like NEUTRAL only adds a touch more saturation to the highlights and midtones, and also pulls the midtone and highlight exposure down very slightly.
– Curve is not extreme, and is very gradable in post.
– Totally removes any muddy/terracotta/plastic look to faces.
– Totally removes any noise issues (assuming you’re properly exposed).
– Default Sharpness is set at 2. This is a very subjective area. In our testing, we noted that any setting below +2 seems to almost blur the image. Anything above +2 seems to be artificial looking. +2 seems to be perfect. We’ve also noted that the in-camera sharpness is much cleaner and un-artificial looking when compared to using the unsharp mask in after effects. It is recommended that you lower only if seeing moire issues.
– Default Contrast is all the way to the left. We don’t recommend changing this.
– Default Saturation is at zero. In 8bit 4:2:0 colorspace, it’s best to keep it here and adjust in post. Lowering will cause lost information.
– Default Tone is +2. In our testing the 5d seemed to bias toward red in the skin tones. This is to compensate for that. Adjust to fit your needs.
Canon’s Picture Style function brings together the settings for image processing parameters (previously tone curve, sharpness and contrast) and colour matrix settings (previously standard, portrait, high and low saturation and Adobe RGB). It combines these into one easy-to-use point of access for the control of sharpness, contrast, colour tone and saturation.
In the past, some users of the EOS-1D range had difficulty understanding the effect of the range of different settings on final image characteristics. Also, some thought that their images looked soft because they did not recognize that Canon’s default setting for EOS-1 series digital cameras deliberately applies no sharpening.
Picture Style makes it simple for users to get optimum image quality by making a selection – more or less like selecting a particular film type in the past on the basis of colour characteristics, contrast and sharpness.
The first three Picture Styles - standard, portrait and landscape - include sharpness levels 3, 2 and 4 respectively and should not need major image processing work on a computer.
- The standard image looks crisp, like a successful snapshot, and the colour tone and saturation are set to obtain vivid colours.
- The portrait style has colour tone and saturation set to obtain natural skin tones. Sharpness, one step weaker than in standard, is kinder to skin.
- With the landscape style, colour tone and saturation are set to achieve deep, vivid blues and greens for skies and foliage. The sharpness is set one step more than standard so that the outlines of mountains, trees and buildings look crisp.
- The fourth style, neutral, is the same as the default setting for previous EOS-1D series cameras. Natural colour reproduction is obtained and no sharpness is applied – it is assumed that some image processing will be done.
- Like neutral, the faithful picture style applies no sharpening. It is the same as Digital Photo Professional’s faithful setting. When the subject is photographed under a colour temperature of 5200K, the colour is adjusted colorimetrically to match the subject’s colour, even with JPEG images.
Each of these five preset Picture Styles can be altered manually in the menu for sharpness, contrast, colour tone and saturation, so personal settings are easy to develop.
- The sixth Picture Style is monochrome, identical to the EOS 20D camera’s monochrome setting. Sharpness is preset at 3 and contrast is at its middle value. Instead of the inappropriate colour tone and colour saturation, settings for filter effects (none, yellow, orange, red, green) and toning effect (none, sepia, blue, purple, green) are available - an in-camera digital darkroom.
These images are all from the same RAW file. They have been processed with Digital Photo Professional (DPP) using the six different Picture Style settings. Although some of the changes are fairly subtle, they give some indication of the scope of this new feature. Picture Styles can be set on the camera and applied to JPEG images processed in the camera, or you can choose the style when you process RAW images. Selecting a Picture Style is rather like selecting a make and type of film for EOS film cameras.
Setting Picture Style

Picture Style is accessed via the camera menu. This is the menu screen of the EOS 5D.
Each built-in Picture Style can be selected. The numbers show the settings for sharpness, contrast, colour saturation and colour tone.
The settings for each Picture Style can be adjusted to suit your requirements. You can return to the original settings by selecting ‘Default set’.
One of the features of Picture Style is that you can add to the camera’s preset styles. There are three user-defined settings – User Def. 1, User Def. 2 and User Def. 3. Here, you can either create your own style by adjusting the sharpness, contrast, saturation and colour tone parameters on the camera (via the Picture Style menu option), or download a new style file from the Canon Picture Style website at
Additional styles include
- Nostalgia – produces an overall amber tone with desaturated blues and greens.
- Clear – contrast is emphasised to provide more depth and clarity.
- Twilight – gives a magical finish to the image.
- Emerald – produces bright and vivid aerial images.
- Autumn Hues – emphasises the reds and browns of autumnal scenes.
- Studio Portrait – expresses translucent skin in smooth tones.
- Snapshot Portrait – reproduces translucent skin with good contrast indoors or out.
To transfer the new style file to your camera you need EOS Utility software, version 3. If you are using an EOS 5D or older, set the camera ‘Communication’ menu item to ‘PC Connect’ (5D) or ‘Print/PC’ (30D); no communication setting is needed with the other compatible models. Connect the camera to your computer via the USB cable supplied as part of the camera kit. Open the EOS Utility application and confirm camera model (if required). Select ‘Camera settings/Remote shooting’; then select the camera icon (red) and ‘Picture Style’. Click ‘Detail set’. In the new window that appears, Select one of the User Def. items from the drop down menu at the top of the screen, and then click the ‘Open’ button. In the dialog window that opens, select the Picture Style file you have previously downloaded. This will transfer the style to your camera.
These are the EOS Utility windows that you use to transfer a Picture Style file to your camera (windows are different for the EOS 5D and 30D).
Cameras with Picture Style
Cameras with the Picture Style function include:
EOS-1D Mark II N, EOS-1D Mark III, EOS-1Ds Mark III, EOS-1D Mark IV, EOS-1D X, EOS-1D X Mark II, EOS 5D, EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 5D Mark IV, EOS 7D, EOS 7D Mark II, EOS 30D, EOS 40D, EOS 50D, EOS 60D, EOS 80D, EOS 400D, EOS 450D, EOS 500D, EOS 550D, EOS 600D, EOS 1000D, and the EOS 1100D.
Compatibility with DPP
Picture Styles For Canon
If you shoot RAW files, Picture Styles can be applied post-exposure using the latest version of Digital Photo Professional (DPP), supplied as part of the software package with the camera.
However, Picture Style files downloaded from the Canon Picture Style website which have the .pse extension cannot be used with DPP 4.5. You need to return to the website and download the latest file, with the .pf2 extension. The latest version of the files is also needed for EOS Utility version 3.

Picture Style Editor
Picture Style Editor is a software application from Canon that allows you to create your own custom Picture Style files. You can select specific colours and change their hue, saturation and luminance. This means that you can make some colours brighter, or darker, or change them completely. You need to work with the program for a while to understand the many capabilities, but it offers a new toolbox of tricks for creative phorographers.

Picture Style Auto
Free Download Picture Style Canon
All EOS DSLR cameras since the EOS 600D feature an EOS Scene Detection system that automatically analyses the shooting conditions, looking at parameters such as a subject’s face, colour, brightness, movement, contrast and focus distance. The results of this Scene Detection are used by the Picture Style system to generate a Picture Style specific to each scene by adjusting contrast, colour tone, sharpness and saturation for optimum results. In general, the Picture Style Auto setting will adjust the colours to look vivid, especially blue skies, greenery and sunsets. As such it is particularly good when shooting landscapes and outdoor sunset scenes.
