Let me preface this by saying that I'm new to DSLR Photo/Video, color correction/grading, etc., so I'm hardly an expert. Nevertheless I recently acquired the Technicolor CineStyle picture style and S-Curve LUT and I decided to compare it to the Neutral picture style on my T3i. I also decided to play around with some color grading as well. I must say that I'm pretty impressed with CineStyle, although I've personally found it more effective to perform color correction and grading without the LUT (not to imply that I actually know what I'm doing). Here's is a breakdown of the clips:
Clip 1: CineStyle RAW
-Shot using Technicolor's recommended settings: Sharpness 0, Contrast -4, Saturation -2, Color Tone 0
Clip 2: Neutral
-Shot using the following settings: Sharpness 0, Contrast -4, Saturation -2, Color Tone 0
Clip 3: CineStyle + LUT
-Applied LUT using Magic Bullet LUT Buddy
Clip 4: Cinestyle + Grading (No LUT)
-Performed basic color correction using Magic Bullet Colorista II
-Performed color grading using Magic Bullet Looks
-Did not apply LUT
Shot on Canon T3i, 50mm 1.8 on a foggy overcast day.
