Fujifilm X100V Film Simulation Recipe: Fujicolor Reala 100


Amusement Poles – Farmington, UT – Fujifilm X100V – “Fujicolor Reala 100”

Fujicolor Reala 100 was Fujifilm’s first Superia film, even though initially it did not have Superia in the name. Superia films shared Fuji’s “4th layer technology” and Reala was the first to have it, but Reala was marketed towards “pro” photographers while Superia was marketed towards “consumer” photographers. Eventually Fujifilm added Superia to Reala’s name. There were several different versions of Reala manufactured, including a high-ISO Tungsten one made for motion pictures, but Reala 100 was the most popular.

The Classic Negative film simulation is “modeled after” Superia with “Superia-like” colors, so it’s the best starting point for a Reala recipe. Reala 100 was very similar to Superia 100, but Superia 100 was intended for “general purpose” photography while Reala 100 was intended for portrait photography (interestingly, my wedding photos were shot on Reala). Colors are rendered a little differently between the two films, especially blue, which is deeper and more saturated on Reala, despite Reala being overall slightly less saturated than Superia 100. You’ll find that this recipe and my Fujicolor Superia 100 recipe replicate these differences quite nicely. Reala film was discontinued in 2013.


Tunnel & Fountain – Farmington, UT – Fujifilm X100V – “Fujicolor Reala 100”

This Fujicolor Reala 100 film simulation recipe is a great all-around option. It looks good under many circumstances. The aesthetic of this recipe is very close to my Superia 100 recipe, and I’m not sure which one I like better. This one is better for stronger blues, and the other is better for stronger reds, but they’re not far apart from each other. Unfortunately, as of this writing, this Reala recipe is only compatible with the Fujifilm X100V, X-Pro3 and X-T4 cameras.

    These colours are exactly what I am looking for… Problem is I am x trans II 🙁

    • Ritchie Roesch · June 20, 2020

      I don’t think it’s possible to get this look on X-Trans II, unfortunately.

  2. Jimmy · June 20, 2020

    Nice, I love the look of the Superia 100 recipe so I can’t wait to try this out. I just wish the clarity effect wasn’t so sluggish.

    • Ritchie Roesch · June 20, 2020

      I agree with the Clarity statement. I think eventually it will get better, via firmware updates, or perhaps the next generation sensor.

      • Jimmy · June 20, 2020

        Hopefully firmware updates and not the latter, the X-Pro3/X100V are still young cameras, but it looks like fuji have stopped adding whole new features in updates.

      • Ritchie Roesch · June 21, 2020

        Well, hopefully they just paused on it.

    Fine! Bravo!!!
    I’m trying your recipes on X RAW Studio.
    Can you tell me if I’ll find the new simulation features of x100v and xpro3 on X RAW Studio and if I’ll be able to save files as TIFF?
    Thank so much.
    Best regards.

    • Ritchie Roesch · June 28, 2020

      You know, the new features should be there. I’m not sure about TIFFs. I haven’t used X RAW Studio in awhile. I’ll have to see if that’s possible.

    Can a variation of this be possible for XT-30?

    • Ritchie Roesch · July 15, 2020

      Unfortunately, no. At least not right now. I hope that Fujifilm will update the firmware to make it possible, but I don’t know if or when they will.

    Great look, really! hope to be able to obtain something similar with an X-H1

    • Ritchie Roesch · October 7, 2020

      Thank you! Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s possible on the X-H1.

  11. N · November 28, 2020

    Is there a way to do this with my xt3? hope you can find a similar recipe of this for xt3. Really weird cos it has same sensor with 100v and t4 but it’s been stuck between the the newer and older sensor when it comes to recipes.

    • Ritchie Roesch · November 30, 2020

      Unfortunately, no. I have an X-T30, and it’s in the same place as the X-T3. I really hoped that Fujifilm would give it the same options as other X-Trans IV cameras, but they didn’t. That’s too bad.

    Only 3 film simulation for bayer sensor !! I tried some of Xtrans sensors it worked with a little bit of tweak but not exactly right ..! Still trying to reach Ektar and fujiSuperia

    • Ritchie Roesch · February 22, 2021

      I wish that I still had the XF10. Selling it was a mistake. The X-T200 that I created a couple recipes with was loaned to me. So if I can get a Bayer camera, I’ll make some more recipes. Ektar and Superia will be tough to create, though.

  14. Luka · May 1, 2021

    Hey, thank you for the lovely simulation recipes (I’ll donate when I get home).

    I have a question though; on my X100V I can’t find:
    – ISO: Auto, up to ISO 6400
    – Exposure Compensation: 0 to +1 (typically)

    When saving/editing a custom filter. Are these global user settings, or can they somehow be saved per film recipe?


    • Ritchie Roesch · May 1, 2021

      The X-E4 can save specific ISOs with each Custom Preset, but on the X100V it is a global setting. You’ll have to use the dial on top for Exposure Compensation (which is more of a suggestion than a rule; judge each exposure on its own merits), so it’s a global setting, as well.
      I appreciate your support. I hope this helps.

    Fujicolor 100 film? It’s a Japan only negative film that gives magnificent colors and contrast right out the gate. I found it in a camera shop in Santa Barbara. Here is it on the darkroom website for details and sample photos to look at for inspiration if you’re interested! I really like the way it reproduces yellow and red.

    • Ritchie Roesch · October 19, 2022

      Great suggestion! I’ll look into it. I think Classic Negative would be a good starting point.
