A forgotten feature?

I stumbled upon a feature of the R  ( and probably any other Canon camera probably, but I think it's especially relevant to the mirrorless line)  that I never heard being discussed before.

As I was reading on "picture styles" on some odd Canon website that looked like it was designed in the 90s. It said you could import extra picture styles in your camera. Which was interesting in itself.

But, further than that, you could design your own picture style into a software called "Picture Style Editor" and import it into your camera. I downloaded the software and you could tweak the picture style much further than you could in camera: on top of the in-camera adjustments you get curves plus HSV adjustments for specific color ranges.

I quickly created something that looks like Classic chrome film simulation  available in Fuji cameras. Uploaded it into the R.

Worked flawlessly.

To be able to visualize in-camera different post processing "looks" is absolutely remarkable.

Plus those picture styles are just contained within a small file. I imagine users could exchange their creation with one another...

Had no idea this was possible in any camera system! (short of shooting tethered directly into a raw editor)
