Fujifilm X-T1 (X-Trans II) Kodachrome II Film Simulation Recipe


Rural Grass – Farmington Bay, UT – Fujifilm X-T1

One of my favorite film simulation recipes, and one of the most popular, if not the most popular, on Fuji X Weekly, is my Kodachrome II recipe. This version of that recipe is adapted for Fujifilm X-Trans II cameras, such as my X-T1. It will work on all cameras with an X-Trans II sensor, plus Bayer sensor cameras, such as the XF10, X-T100 and X-A7. Because it requires the Classic Chrome film simulation, it is not compatible with X-Trans I cameras, or the original X100.

Classic Chrome
Dynamic Range: DR200
Highlight: +2 (High)
Shadow: +1 (Medium-High)
Color: -1 (Medium-Low)
Sharpness: 0 (Medium)
Noise Reduction: -2 (Low)
White Balance: Auto, +1 Red & -2 Blue
ISO: Auto up to ISO 3200

    Just out of curiosity are you still shooting film? Every once in awhile I see some roll here and there in your pics.
    I stopped shooting it last year and I miss it a lot, nothing can beat that vibe.

      I haven’t shot a roll in a year, but every now and then I like to shoot film. Wish it wasn’t so expensive, and or that I had my own lab….
