I haven’t forgotten about my Fujifilm X-T1! My last five film simulation recipes have been for my new X100V, but I will continue making recipes for other sensors. Not everyone, probably not most Fujifilm X shooters, have the latest models, so the recipes for those cameras are irrelevant to many Fuji X Weekly readers. There will still be many articles related to the X100V, but I will continue to publish articles about other Fujifilm cameras, too. I’ll try to keep things balanced.
This “Eterna” film simulation recipe is my best facsimile of my X-T30 Eterna recipe. Obviously X-Trans II cameras don’t have the Eterna film simulation, as well as other options that the X-T30 has. It’s impossible to make an exact match, but this one is surprisingly pretty close. It looks nothing like straight-out-of-the-box Eterna, but it resembles pretty closely my Eterna recipe, which requires some big adjustments to various settings.
My X-T1 “Eterna” recipe has a strong warm color cast, and it has a fair amount of contrast. It reminds me of Kodak Gold printed on Kodak paper, but I’m sure it’s not an exact match for that, just a general impression. This recipe is not for every situation, but it can look great for certain pictures.
