The last time I looked up on the Internet concerning picture styles for my canon 5DIII, it was in 2017. The general opinion back then was that flat picture styles were more of a disaster for colorist when used in 8bit camera.
4 years later, I wanted to look again on the Internet and to my surprise I found only old threads, like if no one is using picture styles anymore.
As there are quite some good colorists amongst us here, I wanted to know what most cinematographer with these cameras use nowadays, if they still do.
I have been using flaat ps for my last shooting in 2017 but strangely enough I can’t find any trace of the brand on the Internet today. I will go for a new film soon so I wonder.
Let me know.

If someone asked me in preproduction what I would want from a DSLR then I’d say that I would want well exposed neutral footage. If the camera can only record in 8 bit then no whatever log things people are trying to sell for it.

8-bit depth and compression video capture work against you in color grading. My recommendation would be to shoot it as close as what you want for your finished film. Cinematographer knowing the camera in and out will be able to get the most out of it. Don’t expect “to fix” things in post from that kind of footage.
