Using the C300 I find the look is there using adjustments without throwing on a LUT. 

 

Would using this method have negative effects when going to broadcast as opposed to web?

LUTs are just a shortcut to get you to a usable look very quickly. There are many other ways to get there which are equally valid, as long as the final image remains broadcast legal.

C300 log is more of a Log lite gamma.. its very much the same as Sony hyper gamma 7/8.. Canon have done this because of the C300 being only 8 bit max.. and cant really handle a true log gamma.. and so its no where near as desaturated/lacking contrast as Sony Slog of Arri LogC .. and so easier to deal with in post..

Yes, Canon-Log is even milder than PanaLog was in the Genesis, it's almost just a low-contrast Rec.709 like HyperGamma.  I don't think you absolutely need a LUT to convert it to Rec.709, you just have to adjust the contrast and black levels to taste.

Re for broadcast.. as Stuart says .. you just need to have your levels.. e.g. white 100% etc legal for broadcast .. nothing to do with the aesthetics in itself..
