Michael_ThatcherFilming with a flat color profile such as cinestyle will help you have more flexibility to push the colors in post and get more "clear" looking video.
lIllIThis is terrible advice for who anyone who shoots in 8-bit (which is 99% of NS).
There is nothing wrong with shooting log c in high-end cameras; the problem is that the log c workflow contradicts the 8-bit workflow. They do not work together at all. The image falls apart as soon as you push it any further than you would shooting a rec. 709 style. The blunt truth that most people don't want to acknowledge is lighting is 90% of the image.
Rdwagner2this is absolutly true, but 90% of ns problaby doesnt know what 8-bit means. lol
I still think you get a better result with cinestyle from a canon dslr than a standard PP, but you are correct you cannot push the image around in grading at all because it will add noise, artifacts and make it look worse. whenever I use this workflow I add less than 10% contrast and sat back in post. the PP just protects the highs and lows a tiny bit more than the standard PP
