Here's a quick look at footage shot with the new Technicolor Cinestyle profile on the Canon T2i / 500D. In short, I love this new profile and I have no intention of using anything but this moving forward. The camera's set to "superflat" (0, -4, -2, 0), which is optimal for this profile.
As you can see, this footage needs to be graded. For this project I pushed the everything warm, but it looks good no matter which way you decided to send it.
Quick note: I DIDN'T end up using an LUT with this. I think for filmmakers creating footage to be seen across a number of different formats it's best to do your grade with a tool like Colorista II. LUTs assume a specific destination for translation.
