I’ve been living life out of a hotel for the past two and half weeks. The small amount of time I’ve spent at home was used to working on my new Makerbot, and now i’m in yet another motel in Montana.

Needless to say this video was shot in 3 different motel rooms with my ever changing facial hair. All I have with me is my Canon 7d, my Canon 35mm f1.4 and my Zoom h4n.

I’ve received quit a few questions on how to install a custom picture style on a Canon DSLR. As apposed to writing an answer to each of you, I thought it might be easier to post a guide.  In case you missed it, here is a post on the most popular picture styles out there.

First find the disk that’s included with your camera, and install the EOS utility software on your computer. Once you’ve done that just download the picture style you like and follow the directions in the video.

xWhiteoutProductions pointed out that you should “make sure that the camera isn’t set on film mode, otherwise you can’t click register user defined style” and also that you should “check your camera to make sure the picture style has been installed properly”. You should see the picture style label in your camera picture style menu once the custom picture style has been installed.

Hope this helps those of you still trying to figure out how to get this custom picture style on to your Canon DSLR.
