My Fujifilm XF10 Film Simulation Recipes


I have created many wonderful film simulation recipes for X-Trans III cameras, but none of those can be used on my Fujifilm XF10. I had to create brand-new film simulation recipes for this camera. I used my experience with other Fujifilm cameras to create different straight-out-of-camera looks that I would appreciate.

You can only have one custom setting saved on the XF10. The default settings that I have programmed for the camera are my Classic Chrome recipe. If I want a look with more saturation I’ll adjust the settings to my Velvia recipe. If I want black-and-white I’ll adjust the settings to my Monochrome recipe. It’s a little bit of a pain to be constantly switching, so I try to not go back-and-forth any more than I need to.

While I use these recipes on my XF10, they’re compatible with the X-T100, X-A5, X-A3 and any X-Trans I or X-Trans II camera. The rendition might vary slightly from model-to-model, but the overall look should be fairly consistent. These settings won’t translate to X-Trans III or X-Trans IV.

Aside from some minor cropping, the photographs in this article are all straight-out-of-camera JPEGs. I like to keep my workflow as simple as possible, and Fujifilm’s different film simulation options allow me to rely on camera-made JPEGs. Using JPEGs instead of RAW saves me a ton of time. I appreciate being in front of a computer less and behind a camera more.

Below are my Fujifilm XF10 film simulation recipes!

Classic Chrome


Ghosts of the Past – Ogden, UT – Fujifilm XF10

This is my go-to film simulation option. I use it significantly more often than the other recipes. It has a classic Kodak film look, although not exactly like any one in particular. I think it most closely resembles 1960’s era Ektachrome, but it’s not an exact match. Even so, it looks great and is quite versatile. It has a lot of contrast, just vibrant enough colors and a warm tone.

Classic Chrome
Dynamic Range: DR-Auto
Highlight: +1 (0 sometimes in high-contrast situations)
Shadow: +2
Color: +1
Noise Reduction: -2
Sharpening: -1
White Balance: Auto, +3 Red & -4 Blue


Kids At The Lake – East Canyon SP, UT – Fujifilm XF10


Bolsey 100 – South Weber, UT – Fujifilm XF10


Terminal Windows – SLC, UT – Fujifilm XF10


Flag On A Pole – Layton, UT – Fujifilm XF10


FED 5c Window – South Weber, UT – Fujifilm XF10



Vibrant Bloom – Riverdale, UT – Fujifilm XF10

Velvia was one of my favorite films. It produced incredibly vibrant colors. Apparently Fujifilm didn’t intend to make such a wild film, it was more of an accident than anything else, but it quickly become the standard film for color landscape photography. Something interesting that I recently learned is one of the people who helped develop Velvia for Fujifilm also helped develop the Velvia Film Simulation. The film simulation isn’t a 100% match to Velvia 50, but perhaps closer to Velvia 100F. My recipe is intended to produce a look that is closer to Velvia 50.

Dynamic Range: DR-Auto
Highlight: 0 (+1 in low-contrast situations, -1 in high-contrast situations)
Shadow: +1
Color: +2
Noise Reduction: -2
Sharpening: -1
White Balance: Auto, +1 Red & -3 Blue


Historic Dragon – Ogden, UT – Fujifilm XF10


Scattering of Red – Fruit Heights, UT – Fujifilm XF10


Sunlight Through The Forest – Bountiful, UT – Fujifilm XF10


Green Leaves – Layton, UT – Fujifilm XF10


Yellow Amid Red – Riverdale, UT – Fujifilm XF10



Shy Horse – South Weber, UT – Fujifilm XF10

The XF10 lacks Fujifilm’s greatest film simulation: Acros. Instead it has the old Monochrome option, which is alright but not nearly as good as Acros. Despite this, it is possible to get nice black-and-white camera-made JPEGs from the XF10. There are four different options, and to understand what each does one must understand what different colored filters do to black-and-white film, as +Y simulates using a yellow filter, +R simulates a red filter and +G simulates a green filter. If you know how to use color filters on black-and-white film then you know when to pick which option on the XF10.

Monochrome (Monochrome+Y, Monochrome+R, Monochrome+G)
Dynamic Range: DR-Auto
Highlight: +1 (+2 in low-contrast situations)
Shadow: +2 (+1 in high-contrast situations)
Noise Reduction: -2
Sharpening: -1

  3. Nan · November 22, 2018

    Thank you so much for sharing all the presets and photos. I’ve already read all of your recipes posts, and you are just amazing with color and tones. I regret a lot that I sold my X100 limited edition very cheaply on eBay, the X100T just doesn’t work for me due to the x-trans sensor. I am so happy to find the x-t100 has a Bayer sensor and it even has a dedicated film simulation wheel! So please release more recipes for the XF10!!! 😉

    • Ritchie Roesch · November 22, 2018

      Sure! I’ve been thinking about creating some new looks for the XF10. Thank you for your kind words!

    • Keith Baines · May 28, 2019

      If you normally use your chrome settings and then change to the velvia settings, which setting does the camera wake up in after it has been switched off?
      What a pity it doesn’t have the 7 ( or at least 3) custom settings like the X100F! Keith

      • Ritchie Roesch · May 28, 2019

        Thank you for your comment! It will wake up with whatever settings it was shut off in. I do wish Fujifilm would have given it some custom settings.

  4. Théo Kyriacopoulos · November 24, 2018

    Thanks a lot ! Now it’s time for me to use it on my X-T10 !! Very nice article !

  5. Viktor · December 3, 2018

    Man, you are a photogenius 😉 I tryed, works well

    • Ritchie Roesch · December 3, 2018

      Thank you! I’m flattered. I would say, of the three, the Classic Chrome recipe is my favorite.

  6. Sam Banes · December 30, 2018

    Hello Ritchie, Thanks for some great insights. I am just starting with film simulations on GFX. However, would you think these recipes made specifically for x-trans give identical results on a GFX that has Bayer sensor?

    • Ritchie Roesch · December 30, 2018

      Congrats on your GFX! I would assume that the recipes are compatible with GFX cameras, but the results wouldn’t be 100% identical; however, I would suspect that it would be very close and that the differences in how the cameras render images wouldn’t be significant. I have never used a GFX camera so this is only speculation.

  7. Sam Banes · December 30, 2018

    Thank you, Ritchie. Looking forward to trying them.

    • Ritchie Roesch · December 30, 2018

      You will have to let me know how it goes.

      • Sam Banes · December 30, 2018

        I’ll keep you posted. Happy to send in some full-sized samples as well for you to examine.

      • Ritchie Roesch · December 30, 2018

        That sounds great! I’m afraid it might make me run out and get a GFX camera, though….

    • heyartze · February 1, 2020

      Just to clarify. The one custom saved setting you refer is because it will save the previous setting prior to turn off right ? Is not a formal custom setting saved via Q button.

    Love the settings Ritchie!

    I picked up the XF10 a couple of days ago as more of a carry everywhere camera to go with my other Fuji.
    But I’ve not been able to find the custom setting to save the recipes like I can with the X100F – can you point me in the right direction?



    • Ritchie Roesch · January 6, 2019

      Unfortunately you cannot. I was disappointed by this myself. That’s why I only created three different recipes, and there’s some similarities between them so that I wouldn’t have to adjust too much.

  10. Miguel · March 29, 2019

    Hi Ritchie,

    I was about to copy your simulations from X-Trans III and was suppose to /2 your settings but then found out it is different for Xtrans II/X-T1. 🙁 Oh well, if you can replicate Acros, Eterna, Kodak Portra 400, both Kodachrome. That would be great!! Thanks alot!!

  11. Andreas · May 20, 2019

    Hey Ritchie,

    So glad I found your blog. You got some great recipes here. I am waiting for my X100T to be shipped. Any chance you will post some more recipes for the X-Trans II Sensor?

    • Ritchie Roesch · May 20, 2019

      I really should. I’ve been focused on X-Trans III and IV, but it would be fun to play around with the older cameras. Thank you for commenting!

  12. coffeeandphoto2 · May 27, 2019

    Fantastic work. .. and very useful I. As I don’t have. Some of settings on my x-t1. Nevertheless I try some of settings out in the future on my camera.

    • Ritchie Roesch · May 27, 2019

      Thanks so much! I’m sorry that I don’t have more articles for X-Trans I and X-Trans II. Maybe I will write more in the upcoming months.

  13. Zack · June 14, 2019

    For your classic chrome recipe is your go to exposure setting the default or are you going + or – a little?

    • Ritchie Roesch · June 14, 2019

      Each exposure should be looked at individually, but I would say that -1/3 to 0 is pretty typical.

      • Zack · June 14, 2019

        Interesting. So the opposite of the x-trans? (ie- I often go +2/3 as do you on your classic chrome recipe).

      • Ritchie Roesch · June 14, 2019

        The camera meters a little different and handles highlights a little different. I’d start at 0 and take a look at what you get.

  14. Mark · July 26, 2019

    Stupid question but does anyone know how i create custom settings in the xf10? Can’t for the life of me find any advice on this..

    • Ritchie Roesch · July 26, 2019

      You cannot save custom presets like on other Fujifilm cameras, like Q menu presets. You can only have the one setting you program in the menu.

      • Aaron · July 31, 2019

        It’s such a shame that Fuji don’t allow custom presets on the XF10.

        It’s probably one of things I’d be most thankful for if they could release the option as a firmware update. Doesn’t need to be 7 like other cameras – 3 would do me just fine!

      • Ritchie Roesch · July 31, 2019

        I completely agree with this! Seems like it would be possible through a firmware update. Take care!

  15. oriolcastells · August 3, 2019

    Great post! I am an analogue photographer and I am considering buying the Xf10 for those times I cannot shoot film. Do you know if it is possible to recreate the pastel look of Fuji Pro 400 h overexposed without too much hustle? This is the look I would like to achieve
    Many thanks!

    • Ritchie Roesch · August 3, 2019

      Oh, I wish that I could. I’ve made a 400H recipe (not for the XF10) but it doesn’t create the pastel colors of overexposing actual 400H film. This would be a film simulation that I would love for Fujifilm to add. Sorry that I couldn’t be more helpful.

  16. Marty Cavassa · August 31, 2019

    Great stuff. Your “Fujifilm XF10 – The Best Camera” post was the final push I needed to purchase the XF10 as a companion to my X-Pro2 instead of the Ricoh GRIII. I’ve used a few of your X-Pro2 simulation recipes (Kodachrome II is just luscious), and am really liking your Classic Chrome recipe for the XF10. Thank you so much for this resource.

    • Ritchie Roesch · August 31, 2019

    Hi Ritchie,
    Have you been able to get anything close to your superia 800 preset out of this camera? Maybe you can share your preset if you can make one! Im struggling with my X70 and X100T

    • Ritchie Roesch · September 2, 2019

      No, I haven’t, unfortunately. The XF10 (and X-Trans I & II) is more restrictive than X-Trans III and IV with the looks that you can make. Sorry that I can’t be more helpful.

  18. Jonathan · October 17, 2019

    hey Ritchie, thank you very much for the recipes! please make another classic chrome recipe.. really love the result on my X-T100

    • Ritchie Roesch · October 17, 2019

      I’m so glad that you like these! I appreciate the feedback.

  19. Marcel · November 6, 2019

    Hi Ritchie,

    Bought XF10 a few days ago, and stumbled upon this presets of yours. The classic chrome really made the straight out of camera jpegs pop. But I can’t help but be drawn to the images you created using the kodachrome II presets. It would be a great addition to this set if it is doable on the XF10.

    Really looking forward to your next xf10 presets. This could help elevate the status of this otherwise underrated camera. You’re presets brings out the image making capacity of XF10 and hopefully fujifilm gives us an update to make this customization much easier to use.

    • Ritchie Roesch · November 6, 2019

      I appreciate the kind words and feedback! I should make more recipes for cameras like the XF10. It hasn’t been a priority for me, but it makes sense to do more for that since it’s helpful to many. Thank you for the suggestion!

      • clement · December 6, 2019

        Hey Ritchie, like Marcel I would love having new xf10 presets, the ones you made for the X100F are so cool ! Astia film and Kodak Portra 400 film simulation recipes are great!
        Portra 400 used to be my favourite one when I was shooting film.

        Love what you have done, must be a lot of work. Thanks!

      • Ritchie Roesch · December 6, 2019

        I’m so glad that you like the film simulation recipes! You are right, it can be a lot of work. Especially if it takes a lot of trial and error to get it right. I’ve had a lot of requests for recipes that can be used on the older sensors and bayer sensors, so perhaps I should work on that. Thank you for the comment!

    hi Ritchie,

    got me a xf10 as a point and shoot camera for my private use as the big equipment is just not fun to walk around in my spare time, and so I found your blog. I already love that settings, didn’t know it is that simple to customise the in camera color schemes. thanks for that!

    hope one reads that as the post is from 2y ago, but am having one question:

    is there a way to have these special settings also displayed while shooting? I only see the extra color settings applied to the image when having a look at the photos in playback. or am I just overseeing something?


    • Ritchie Roesch · January 23, 2020

      There’s a “Disp” button on the back and you can scroll through different display options. I believe it’s possible to somewhat customized what’s displayed by digging into the menu.

      DR Auto is like setting it to DR100, but with the camera occasionally jumping up to DR200 in high contrast situations.

  24. Ertzal · February 28, 2020

    Hello !
    Thanks a lot for your recipes. It’s quite hard to find any tips and tricks for fuji x with bayer sensors. However I love my x-t100 and your recipes are a great starting point for creating other recipes.

    Do you plan to create more fuji-xf10/x-t100/x-A5 recipes? It would be really really awesome. I’ve tried your X-T1 recipes but they are not really compatible with bayer senors because it does not seem to handle light and contrast in the same way.

    By the way, I have to say that I read your whole blog this last few days and you’ve made a wonderful job. A great balance between tests, explanations, tips and nice pictures.

    (sorry for my english, it’s not my native language)

    • Ritchie Roesch · February 29, 2020

      Thank you! I appreciate your feedback and kind words of encouragement. I will see what I can do for Bayer recipes.

    Hi! Thank you for all those recipes. I’m actually a big fan of Kodachrome on my xt30. I try to set another film simulation to reach warm muted tones for outdoor portrait/street photography. It’s close to the classic chrome recipe you propose here, but it’s not enough warm for me, on the xt30. I guess this look is kinda trendy nowadays, called most often “golden warm portrait colors”. I have some troubles setting the white balance. It is too red (problem for skin tone) or too green when I try to neutralize it (tried 7000k, daylight ). Do you have some advice to reach this look? Thank you very much!

    I have my xf10 for almost have a year now and yesterday I came by your blog and I was amazed that someone (you) has created film recipes for the xf10! It’s a camera with a “dated” processor I get it, but the same time it’s like the perfect camera, as you said on your review, because of it’s size, portability and image quality. Thank you so much about these 3 recipes! Always appreciated not to spend too much time on post processing to achieve a nice result. I understand that this camera is not a priority but I would love to see some more recipes for the xf10! Until then, you think I could try recipes for the xtransII? Which processor is closer to the Bayer? Congrats for the blog and your excellent job! Already marked as a bookmark!


    • Ritchie Roesch · June 16, 2020

      Thank you for the input! X-Trans II recipes will work, but will produce slightly different looks. Similar but not exact. Feel free to try them!

      • Marcel · June 18, 2020

        Hi Ritchie and readers,

        I managed to try the recipes for X-Trans II using xf10, and but I find the output of the classic chrome (bayer) more consistent. I mean I know exactly what to expect regardless of lighting conditions. Maybe its also because I used it more than the others that I already prefer it. One more bonus for me is that the output under incandescent reminds me of Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories, a series which I watched because of the moody cinematography.

        Cheers and stay safe,

    Hi Ritchie,

    “Thank you for the report! Which X-Trans II recipes do you like on the XF10?”

    There’s no reply button directly under your message. So I’ll post it here. For me outdoors with good daylight kodachrome II. It doesn’t have that too vintage representation in its output while the overall color output are represented well. At least from what I observed in the xf10. But indoors in artificial light or mixed with natural light to lowlight conditions, the color pop and contrast produced by your classic chrome for xf10 is more of my taste. In fact, if I’m always in a hurry like with my last time I was on vacation last January, I had the camera on your classic chrome. It is just that flexible that it doesn’t fail on any situation. Even on those out of focused shots that xf10 tend to give from time to time, because of the color pop, some of them became artsy l can throw them to be intentional. 🙂 So I had those 2 keyed in on my cheat sheet.

    TL;DR – My top is your classic chrome (xf10) followed by kodachrome II (xtrans II).

    • Ritchie Roesch · June 20, 2020

      Awesome! Thank you for the report! It’s appreciated!

  30. KR15T0 · June 25, 2020

    Hi, I’m a bit confused which Classic Chrome version to use with my X20 camera. It has the X Trans II sensor but doesn’t feature the Fuji own version. Is it or the one featured here? The one on this page doesn’t mention any film simulation to use. I’ve tried Provia but the colours look way off. Cheers!

    • Ritchie Roesch · June 25, 2020

      As far as I know, Fujifilm never gave the X20 Classic Chrome. Classic Chrome wasn’t initially on X-Trans II sensors, but was added via firmware updates. I believe the X30 does have Classic Chrome, but not the X20.

  31. Rob · August 3, 2020

    Hi Ritchie, I managed to pick up a basically new XF10 on eBay for a cheap price, I’m excited to start playing with it and happened across your post here. Sorry for the stupid question, but I’m a bit confused as to what these recipes are for, because my understanding is that the camera has film simulations such as the classic chrome built right into it anyway? Or are these your own version of those? Thanks!

    • Ritchie Roesch · August 3, 2020

      The recipes are simply a customization of the film simulation by adjusting other settings (color, highlight, shadow, etc) to get a certain look. I hope this helps!

    I got mine yesterday and tried all your settings. Pictures look like shit. Colors look fake, especially nature. I guess they only look good at this page because you resized them so much. On full screen I am really dissapointed so far with this camera. Tomorrow I will try RAW and if that doesn’t work either, I’ll will return the camera.
    My Samsung S10 phone outperforms this camera in almost every aspect except for detail in distance which look like nothing on a mobiel phone. But on normal view, the phone is much better especially in low light.

    • Ritchie Roesch · August 21, 2020

      Mine look much better when viewed larger. Not sure what to say. Either you got a defective copy, or there’s something not set right, or you just have different tastes. My recommendation is if you don’t like it, return it.

      • Eric · August 21, 2020

        I don’t know. They just look very cheap on my pc. You didn’t doe any post processing?

        Aside from some cropping, these are straight out of camera.

  35. Eric · August 22, 2020

    I gave jpeg up but found something better! I now just shoot raw and ad downloaded filmsimulations (rawtherapee) in post. After I have all the lightsettings correct because it are only color profiles.
    I now outperform the Jpegs I found on the internet very easy!
    Happy for now! 🙂 Only thing I am having hard times with, is corner sharpness of the Fuji. I read it was very good if stopped down to f5.6 or zo, but I have to disagree. For really sharp images from corner to corner, especially at a distance, I still have to use the Ricoh. But I am now faithfull I can make great looking color pics with it and that’s the reason I bought it!

    • Ritchie Roesch · August 23, 2020

    Regards Lars…

    • Ritchie Roesch · April 13, 2021

      It’s not really comparable. Classic Negative is much different. It’s kind of like comparing Fujicolor Superia to Kodak Ektachrome. Very different. I too really appreciate this Classic Chrome recipe, and I even use it on my X-T1 sometimes.
      Thanks for your kind words!

    Im still waiting for more recipes 🙁 Could i use the ones of trans II?

    • Ritchie Roesch · April 21, 2021

      You can use X-Trans II, but you might have better luck with X-Trans I recipes just because colors are more similar.

    Hi, first off what a great website you have and thank you for sharing your findings. I am using a Fuji x100 original and am trying to replicate a Kodak Portra 160 and 400 look. Would you recommend the classic analog recipe for the x-trans I over the Portra 160 recipe for the x-trans II? Thanks!

    • Ritchie Roesch · October 7, 2021

      Well, maybe Classic Analog or even Color Negative Film. Perhaps X-Trans II “Kodachrome Without Classic Chrome” is worth a try. Without Classic Chrome or even the Pro Neg options, you are really limited.

      • Andrew K · October 8, 2021

        Thanks Ritchie. I decided to settle On kodachrome without classic chrome. Somehow works on the bayer sensor. Might up the Red on the wbshift a little to get a warmer tone.

    You’re so talented! So happy to have found your website and work. This is my favorite recipe I’ve come across but I’m using the FujiX100V. Is this one compatible or is there another that will render the color similarly?

    • Ritchie Roesch · October 30, 2021

      It’s not directly compatible, but you can try it anyway. It will look just a little different, but you might like it. I appreciate your kindness!

    A que te refieres con el resaltado automático y el DR – ? A mi el DR me aparece en tanto por ciento, y el resaltado no sé si te refieres a las altas luces.

    Hi, really appreciate you posting these recipes and loving the Classic Chrome one.
    I’m new to photography and getting to grips with the XF10.
    Other than settings already posted are there any other ones that are a must? for example:
    Would you shoot this mostly in Aperture Priority?
    ISO mode setting? (using auto6400 currently)
    Any tips for this camera greatly appreciated, I’m already getting some nice shots with the recipes you have posted so thank you!

    • Ritchie Roesch · April 7

      There are plenty of other settings that are personal choices. I shoot in aperture priority most often, but sometime shutter priority or full manual. I do recommend Fine JPEGs with maximum quality. I also use sRGB because I had a bad experience once with AdobeRGB. I hope this helps!

    Hey, Ritchie, just a quick comment to thank you for this older series of XF10 recipes that you created waaaay back in 2018, but which still appear to be quite helpful five years later, in 2023. I say “appear to be” because I haven’t yet been able to try some of them out on my new (actually it’s used, but new to me) XF10, just purchased from a fellow photographer. I’m curious to see how it (the camera, I mean) will actually perform, compared to both the X70 I used to own – as well both a GR II and a Coolpix A that I had formerly. As I’m sure you know, these days the prices of used X70s have soared to nearly stratospheric levels, while XF10’s still can be found for quite reasonable prices. It will be my first non-X-Trans sensored Fuji ever, but the camera itself has so many positives that I’m optimistic it will serve well as a truly pocketable take-anywhere small photographic device.

    Also, I’ll take the liberty of repeating what a number of other posters commented on here, namely their desire that, some day, you might apply your talents and imagination to creating a few more XF10 recipes — on the general theory of ‘the more, the merrier’! I don’t know how many actual XF10 users there are, but when you add on all the users of the original (Finepix) X100, I suspect there might be quite a few who would welcome and applaud any new creations.

    More to come (hopefully) after I have tried out a few of the XF10 recipes…

    • Ritchie Roesch · 7 Days Ago

      You are welcome! Try X-Trans II Recipes… they render slightly differently, but still similar enough that you might like some of them.

      If I ever get another Bayer model camera, I’ll be sure to create more Recipes on it.

      I appreciate all of your kindness!
