Popular Fujifilm YouTubers Andrew & Denae just posted a video that features Fuji X Weekly, specifically my three Kodachrome film simulation recipes! It’s an interesting video that’s worth 11 minutes of your time. I embedded it above, so take a look!
Kodachrome is one of the films that I liked to shoot with many years ago. Back then, everyone used Kodachrome it seemed. It was a very popular film, but because of the complex and toxic process required to develop it, and lower sales due to digital photography, Kodak discontinued it in 2009. Kodachrome is gone, but people still want the Kodachrome look. My recipes allow people to get a Kodachrome aesthetic straight out of their Fujifilm camera.
Of course, Kodachrome can look different depending on various variables. There were different eras of Kodachrome, and different film options, each with its own look. How you view the picture greatly effects the look: light table, projector, print, or scan, and how so. You can’t make a recipe that mimics all of these variables, but I do think my three options are good at recreating a Kodachrome look in-camera.
I want to give a special Thank You to Andrew & Denae for trying my Kodachrome recipes and for featuring this website on their video. They said a lot of kind things, and I really appreciate their encouragement. Check out their YouTube channel and subscribe if you don’t already! Also, as a reminder, Fuji X Weekly has a YouTube channel, and I invite you to take a look at it and subscribe.

Congrats on the feature in the video. I saw it and it’s so cool to see your pioneer work in the Fuji community getting featured 🙂
Just a question: a few months ago you posted articles of your recipes sorted by DR value or whitebalance. Could you regroup and highlight these articles to make them easier to find? I’m not sure if you also regrouped them by film simulation, but that would be useful. I was searching for recipes that use Provia, I found the recipes but grouped under one label would make things faster especially as you have now quite a collection of recipes.
Great stuff Ritchie! Enjoyed the video and motivated to try out the recipes.
Thank you, I appreciate it!
I can see why they would want to use it. It is my favorite, I use it quite often.
I’m glad to hear that you like it and use it often!
