Filmkit Flat is a picture style that expands the dynamic range on Canon mirrorless cameras that do not come with C-log (like the M50, M6 Mark II, EOS RP and R10). It is tuned to take advantage of the additional dynamic range and image pipeline in Canons recent mirrorless cameras. It closely matches the official Canon Log found on the EOS R, so it is fully compatible with LUTs designed for Canon Log. The picture style can be installed on any Canon mirrorless or DSLR that supports custom picture styles.

I've tried many of the third-party flat/c-log-like picture styles available, but they were either:

  • much flatter than actual Canon log, making them harder to match to other cameras and grade
  • skewing the colors in unnatural ways
  • straining the 8 bit codec, leading to noise and artifacts
  • leaving an artificial gray 'haze' over the footage, even after grading

That's why I decided to create a picture style for Canon mirrorless cameras that fit my requirements of matching Canon-log as closely as possible, retaining accurate color response (no reds turning purple), and minimizing degradation of the image.

New: Filmkit Wide DR picture profile

Available on checkout

Sometimes you want to retain shadow- and highlight detail, without having to extensively grade the footage afterwards. For those fast-turnaround projects I've designed Filmkit WideDR: a picture style for Canon cameras that protects highlights and shadows but can be used straight out of camera (just add some contrast to taste). As an added benefit, Filmkit WideDR is easier to shoot with, because you're not looking at a flat image on your monitor.
