The EOSHD C-LOG and Film Profiles Pack is now available and works in both video and stills mode – on all Canon DSLRs and mirrorless cameras.
Crafted using my Canon Cinema EOS 1D C as a development camera, the EOSHD C-LOG and Film Profiles pack installs a “Canon LOG” picture style on cameras previously without it, plus a range of film simulation modes.
The pack is supplied with full easy to follow instructions and no modification or firmware update is necessary. It is compatible with all Canon DSLRs and mirrorless cameras such as the EOS RP, EOS M series, 5D Mark IV, 6D Mark II, 5D Mark III, 1D X Mark II, Rebel series, EOS R and more.

The D500 also comes in much cheaper than the larger FX pro body.
