Default perfect video setting on t3i 600d..found it :)

This isn't my discovery but I thought of you who use the canon for video might be interested.
I was dabbling with my canons 600d video settings and wasn't happy with the results. Or rather it was hit or miss.. I stumbled across these settings on the web and thought I'd give it a try..

picture profile - neutral
sharpness - 1
contrast - minus 3
saturation - minus 1
colour tone - not changed
highlight tone priority - enabled

Because I film mostly birds/wildlife I choose to put the saturation up one (personal preference)
The results are very impressive ... this is nothing more than a 20 second clip of this setting...

hope this is helpful to someone..Or if someone has any other tips

Those settings seem to give a very natural appearance....
Nice little Dunnock...

thanks..I guess if you were after the "cinematic look" it might not suit, but for natural looking film it seems to work..
