Is there a picture setting that gives a flat low contrast, low saturated image for grading? The image would be in a controlled setting where I can control exposure. I'm trying to figure out how to get the most latitude in a shot for color correction. I see the T2i comes with some picture styles. Is one the those styles good for grading?

wouldn't it be the same as the MKII and 7D with superflat or marvelcine settings?

I've been testing various settings on the camera.
I haven't tried "superflat or marvelcine, and read here on DVXuser that they are downloads.
Aren't they just 4 numbers programmed into custom settings? If not do you have a link to the download, and if so what are the sequences?
Thanks

Which picture style (or variation thereof) provides the best results ungraded? Not everyone wants or has the time to color correct.

A few weeks back I did some picture style framegrabs (superflat, marvelcine, genesis, neutral -4 -4 -1, neutral 0, 0, 0, 0)
and picture styles attached to post for download, instructions for loading to t2i

Thanks J. I just read your thread. I'll have to do some test shoots.
