Film Simulation Review: Waiting With Fujicolor 100 Industrial


Waiting Outside – Ogden, UT – Fujifilm X-T30 & Fujinon 35mm f/2

My Fujicolor 100 Industrial film simulation recipe is very underrated. I don’t hear many people talk about it. This recipe doesn’t get nearly as many views as some of my other ones, perhaps because the film that it mimics isn’t especially well known. Make no mistake, this recipe is one of the best! If you’ve never tried it, I invite you to do so.

This particular film simulation recipe pairs well with urban scenes. It’s good for more than just that, but a downtown environment seems to be where this recipe does its best work. These photographs aren’t urban, but my Fujicolor 100 Industrial recipe was a good choice for this series.

Anytime can be a good time for photography. Take a camera with you wherever you go, and you’ll be surprised at the photographic opportunities that present themselves. This series of pictures was captured while waiting in line to get inside of Costco, and I was able to do this because I had my Fujifilm X-T30 with me, which had a Fujinon 35mm f/2 lens attached to it. With what’s going on in the world, there’s a line to even get inside of the store to shop. I used the wait as an opportunity to create some pictures. This is no special event. The lighting wasn’t extraordinary. It was unremarkable. Despite that, there were pictures worth capturing, images worth creating, even in an ordinary moment. Use the ordinary moments in life as photographic opportunities.

    Man, I noticed long ago that ProNeg.Std was the best for all about photos. With some tweaks to one’s taste of course.

      Pro Neg Std is definitely underrated. I ignored it for awhile when I first got into Fujifilm cameras.

      I recently started using ProNeg Std and ProNeg Hi, and I think I like them better than Classic Chrome.

      • Ritchie Roesch · May 1, 2020

        I like both Pro Neg Std and Hi, but of the two I find myself using Std more often.

    That kind of line in New Jersey would get that Costco shutdown. I don’t see any proper physical distancing, and no one is wearing face masks. You can’t enter any store in New Jersey without a face mask.

      Things are a lot different in Utah, probably because it hasn’t hit here very badly. In Utah, individual counties decide what restrictions they have. Half of the Coronavirus cases, hospitalizations and deaths have occurred in one county, and it’s more restrictive there. The county that this Costco is in has barely been touched by Coronavirus, so it’s less restrictive. I imagine New Jersey being much more restrictive than here.

    Nice simulation

    Personally I use only 3 film
    simulations for my tests with or without recipe.
    Classic Chrome, Across AND ProNeg Std definitely not underrated here 😉

    Hi Ritchie, thank you so much for this blog post and receipe!!!
    To be honest, I shoot Fujigear since end of 2013 and I never ever used ProNeg Std. 🙁
    Until today 🙂
    I use this receipe now on my X-T10 (!) … there is no setting for grain and classic chrome effect, but the receipe is absolutely wonderful on the X-Trans II Sensor. My everyday setting has changed into Fujicolor 100 Industrial!

      I’m so glad that you like it! That is cool that you were able to adapt it to your X-T10. Thank you for commenting!

  5. I used the simulation a bit ago, last summer.
    I’ve got so many Itry and use the ones I have on tap to match what I’m shooting. For me, the AgfaColor film simulation I prefer over the Fuji Industrial 100 for Urban shots.

    I did get these with the Fuji Industrial on the XPRO2:

      Thank you for sharing! I didn’t know that one could add a picture to the comments. How did you do it?
