You guys might want to check out these picture styles that people have come up with for maximizing DR.

The only downside I see is if you use your own picture styles for other things (like mimicking certain types of film for stills) - canon only lets you use 3 custom picture styles, so this takes up one for video use only (and I'd probably never use it for stills)...

What do you guys think?
