12 New Film Simulation Recipes in 2020, And Counting…

So far this year I have published 12 new film simulation recipes: six for “newer” Fujifilm cameras, such as my X-T30, and six for “older” models, such as my X-T1. Actually, one article contained three different recipes, so technically we’re up to 14. Yet there will be more! I have several ideas and aesthetics that I am working on. 2020 might be the biggest year yet for film simulation recipes!

One of these days I hope to have the new Classic Negative and Bleach Bypass film simulations available to use. I think both, but especially Classic Negative, have the potential to be great starting points for new recipes. I’m not “upgrading” my camera right now, though, as there’s not really a need to, so unfortunately that will have to wait until Fujifilm makes those available to the X-T30 via firmware updates (which may or may not happen), or I buy a new model sometime down the road (it won’t be soon).

Which of the recipes below are your favorites? Are you using any of them right now? Is there one that you haven’t yet used but are planning to soon? Even though I have five listed under “X-Trans IV” you can still use them with X-Trans III cameras. You just don’t have Color Chrome Effect, which doesn’t make a big difference, so the results will be quite similar.

    Mein Favorit 2020 ist definitiv “Dramatic Monochrome”, mittlerweile fest auf C7 programmiert. Auf der “to do list” steht Bleach Bypass oben an.
    Vielen Dank für Deine tollen Rezepte!

    Ritchie! Thanks for your enormous input on this! Can’t wait to see more film recipes while I keep on hoping that a new firmware will allow to save AWB/colour shifts individually for C1-C7!

    My favorite is Kodacolor

    cheers

    Hello Ritchie, so far, I’ve tried Faded Monochrome and Analog Color. I love both of them.

    Thank you!

    Your faded monochrome make me experiment with double exposure on my x-t100. It’s really fun. Thanks for this one!

    Would love to see what you could come up with using the X-Pro3, Classic Neg and additional options it allows!

      I look forward to someday doing just that, but it won’t likely be in 2020, unless Fujifilm adds it to the X-T30. Thanks for the encouragement!
