Vintage Market Days with Kodacolor

My wife, Amanda, and I created a new video! Well, Amanda created the video. She was the cinematographer and the editor. I submitted the photographers. Amanda loves to create videos, and she’s a great storyteller. She’s encouraged me for some time now to include more video content on the Fuji X Weekly blog. I’m not especially good at making videos, so I was thrilled when she offered to help. This will be the first of many videos that we will collaborate on together, but they’re mostly Amanda’s creations, which is wonderful. If you like this video, please let her know in the comments!

The idea behind the Vintage Market Days video, and the many others that will be forthcoming, is that we will use one film simulation recipe for the footage and photographs. For this particular video we chose the Kodacolor recipe. In retrospect that might not have been the best recipe for this situation, as it produces a yellow cast under artificial light, but when we decided to do this we didn’t know that it mostly an indoor event. It’s still pretty interesting to see what happens when you use Kodacolor.

Did you know that you can use most of the different film simulation recipes for video? I know many of you aren’t videographers, but some of you are. Using the recipes for video saves time in editing because you already have your “look” and don’t need to adjust it with software. This will be a game-changer for some of you! Some of you might be already doing this.

I used a Fujifilm X-T30 with a Fujinon 90mm lens for the photographs. Amanda used a Fujifilm X-T20 with a Rokinon 12mm lens for the video footage.

    What a great post! I rather like the film simulation, it goes with the vintage vibe. I don’t do any video at all but you and Amanda have made me want to have a try. Would Amanda be willing to do a blog post for complete beginners on how to get started with video?

    • Ritchie Roesch · October 16, 2019

      That’s a good question! I will have to ask her.

    Vintage Market shot on a vintage-style modern camera with a vintage-style film simulation. I love it. I think the Kodacolor recipe works very well with this subject and lighting.

    I don’t do any video. I have tried, but I don’t have that patience or talent for it. Amanda did an excellent job with video editing.

      She sure did! I’m definitely not video talented, so I am super excited to have her involved in this blog. Thank you for the feedback!
