I've seen a quite a few complaints about skin tones looking grey or plastic with different picture styles. Anyone here still facing that issue?
Gear: Canon 600D + EF-S 18-55mm IS II, Yongnuo YN560IV.

Hi @reddeercity , can you answer this other thread? I'm very curious about ACES, but don't know much. Thanks.
Sure I'll try to explain it without confusing you more I hope

Yes, I had this issue with VisionLog (old beta profile from vision-color), but not with LogNeutral. You have to be really hard on color grading, though.
The way to go is MLV if you want quality. If you need to record something that doesn't need so much quality, go with LogNeutral + 3DLUTs, I would say.

Ok, thanks!

Although as @reddeercity says it is a different "fruit" look at the way custom picture styles are installed on the Canon cinema cameras:

Wouldn't that be cool? For still cameras you get three custom picture styles maximum and you need to use EOS Utility to load them.

Thank you for your answer.
Ok i find the time to try understand.
The idea of picture style for the both is the same, different "fruit" but not soo different, it's a fruit.
The idea it’s, if he can do that (reduce some color artefacts or noise) maybe it’s possible to do the same by custom picture styles for DSRL.
Maybe for Log imitation picture styles too, like OESHD C-log.
I do some test in this way here (Half Log imitation picture styles too).
