I use the Standard picture style set because when Im calling shots, I like to have a little bit of contrast built into the preview jpeg and its easy enough to go back to neautral.

Edit: Haha, I said "calling".

I'm not sure if this is a thread or not, but does anyone use the "Picture Style" preset or custom feature?

As somebody already mentioned, if you shoot RAW, the picture styles don't matter (except that with the 500D there is only RAW+JPG, so the styles affect the JPG)

Custom features are useful in some cases, but you have to know what you need and then find the custom feature setting , if it exists for the 500D. I use back button focus a lot and that is a custom feature. ISO expansion is also something that might be of interest.

Back button focusing is useful if you want to play with recomposition more. I don't like it on the rebel cameras cause I find it too small and it gets cramped to back button focus.

so as you guys mention the "styles" do nothing if you shoot RAW (which I do)

edit. I just tested some "styles" out. I can see a huge difference on screen when I used custom style 7sharp,2contrast,3stat​uration, and 2 color tone, vs the "neutral" style.......

did a little research and just set my back button focusing haha.
this is very usefully, usually I would just keep my hand on the AF/MF switch on the lens and do it that way every time I recompose. but this seems far more easy to use.

I have different lenses and different exposures. It is impossible to accommodate all lenses and different situations even with ten styles. I better do it in PP, but with L lenses and Tamron zoom I'm often happy with SOOC at neutral style.

I'm not quite sure I follow. My T1i shot either straight RAW or RAW + Jpeg. I shot just RAW for most of the time I owned it.
