Test: Picture Style “Canon Camera XF-Series Look”
Canon released a new Picture Style for it’s DSLR Cameras that should match the the X-Series Video-Cameras.

I made a quick test an compared the “Video Camera X-Series Look” to other common Pictures Styles, including my NTownFilmFlat PS. I used my Canon 7D with the EF 24-105 f4L.
The new “Video Camera X-Series Look” is not to mistaken with a flat log-type picturestyle like Technicolor Cinestyle or NTownFilmFlat because it is a pretty contrasty PS compared to the flatter styles, like the name implies – for the X-Series camcorders from Canon (XF-100, XF-300, etc.).
The VideoX Style looks like a good balanced out-of-the-camera look which can be graded a little but grading is actually not needed. It retains a little more contrast compared to the Canon Neutral Picture Style.
Thanks for this. I had downloaded it and right after seeing your clips moved to to the trash.
I think the X-Series style is not really for the trash, it depends on
what you want and I’m sure the it can be helpfull matching Canon DSLRs
with their X-Series Camcorders. But I had to admit I have to test this out before I can judge on that matter.
