Invitation to test my new Picture Style for Canon DSLR cams

Remark: see update above.

I am in the process of developing a new picture style for the Canon 5D mkII camera, that will be used for a new feature film DSLR production. Base of the style is the Marvels Cine 3.3 style, that i’ve developed for Marvels Film, using my own tools (instead of the Canon profile editor). It is NOT a replacement for the renowned Marvels Cine style, but a new experimental version that will be used to shoot early-autumn exterior scenes in Italy this year.

If you live and shoot in a less-grey/blue environment than northern Europe, consider using this style instead of the Marvels v.3.3.

New in this version is a slightly altered s-Curve to provide better luminance linearity in the 65-75% range (e.g. skin tones) and uses the Neutral style as a basis, instead of the Standard style as in the Marvels Cine v3.3 style. This to move the overall tone a bit more to green instead of the pronounced orange skintone look of the Marvels v3.3.

Everyone is invited to download, test and use this new profile. Please check back regularly if you want to get the eventual release version.
Any comments, testresults, raves and rants are much welcomed..!

By the way… all picture Marvels styles (most syles not by me, except for 3.3 and 3.4beta) can be downloaded as one ZIP archive here.

    Hi Jorgen
    How does your 3.4 beta handle highlite detail compared with the 3.3? Is there any difference?

    • jorgescher says:


      There is a smoother roll off at the top, but only a slight change compared to the 3.3. Nothing is crushed or stretched in any way and the full 0-255 range is used.
      Read the new article at the top of my blog about the 3.4.

      Thanks and kind regards,

      Jorgen Escher
