My X-T30 Eterna Recipe For X-Trans III


Kitchenscape – South Weber, UT – Fujifilm X-T30 – Eterna

A couple of days ago I published my Fujifilm X-T30 Eterna film simulation recipe, which I have received a lot of positive feedback for. I have also received several requests to invent a film simulation recipe that produces similar results without using Eterna, for those who have X-Trans III cameras and don’t have access to that film simulation. Well, I did it! I made an “Eterna” recipe that mimics my Eterna recipe. It’s not a 100% match, but it’s pretty close, and don’t think you’ll get much closer without using Eterna.

There are a few settings that could be adjusted, so you’ll have to decide what you like best. I think Shadow should be set to +1.5, but since that setting doesn’t exist, you’ll have to choose between +1 and +2. I went with the latter. It’s a similar situation with Color, and I went with +3 but you could choose +2 instead. I think that an argument could be made that a white balance shift of +6 Red and -6 Blue is more accurate, so there’s another decision. You can make whatever changes you’d like to customize this recipe to your own tastes.

    I dialed in those settings into my Fuji X-T20 but the image looks really bad and too contrasty, it’s almost only black and white. Are the values really supposed to be “+” because your on your first Eterna profile you used “-” values which decreases contrast and gives it a more cinematic look. Or am I doing something wrong here? Thanks for your effort, love your custom styles, especially Kodachrome II.
