Fujifilm X-T20 (X-Trans III) Film Simulation Recipe: Cine Teal

Garden Flowers Bloomed – Farmington, UT – Fujifilm X-T20 – “Cine Teal”

My Fujifilm X100V “Cine Teal” film simulation recipe has been a lot more popular than I expected it to be. It requires the Eterna film simulation, plus some other settings only found on the newest Fujifilm models. I’ve been asked by a few people to create a “Cine Teal” recipe for X-Trans III cameras, which don’t have that film simulation and those new options, so I did! This recipe woks best during the “Blue Hour” of dusk and dawn, in shade and on overcast days.

PRO Neg. Std
Dynamic Range: DR400
Highlight: -1
Shadow: +3
Color: -3
Noise Reduction: -3
Sharpening: -1
Grain Effect: Weak
White Balance: 4500K, +2 Red & -8 Blue
ISO: Auto up to ISO 6400
Exposure Compensation: +2/3 to +1 (typically)

Example photos, all straight-out-of-camera JPEGs captured on a Fujifilm X-T20 using this “Cine Teal” Film Simulation recipe:

These settings also work on the Fujifilm X-T30 and X-T3, just set Color Chrome Effect to Off. I captured the photographs below on my X-T30 using this “Cine Teal” film simulation recipe:

    Hey Ritchie, thx for sharing your knowledge. How does fuji settings translate to lightroom? You can choose film simulation in lightroom and modify also other values like sharpness etc but how this relates to fuji camera settings? Ex.highlight -1, whats does it mean in lightroom? As far as i remember in fuji you have highlight -1 and -2 so -1 would stand for -50% slider in lightroom? I didnt play with pictures to compare your settings with lightroom yet but maybe you did already?

      Hey, if you’re looking to process your photos to get the same look as the recipes I’d recommend using Fuji X raw studio, you just need to connect your camera to your laptop and it’ll use the camera for processing. The lightroom presets are fine but you’re not going to get the exact look with it.

      I have no idea, I don’t use Lightroom. These are settings for straight out of camera JPEGs or X RAW Studio. Sorry that I can’t be more helpful.

    Hi Ritchie
    sorry for only reaction just now, but I was covered in work and did not even have the time to set up this recipe in my X-E3!
    Thank you so much for adjusting this look for older sensor/processor generations.
    I will try it asap in the wild! I actually have been using your simulations for some images on my @neglectedloves account on Instagram.

    One interesting thing I found out while setting it up: even though there are strict limitations in my outdated firmware, which shows in just one setting for AWB / color shifts, this does not apply to the Kelvin settings (for whatever reason): even though there is a global/general setting for K, I can still chose another K number in C1-C7, only color shift seems to be fixed in general/global settings…

    Weird, weird, weird and totally illogical…
    Still praying for a firmware update and/or an X-E4 😉

    thanks again for all your work and devotion!

    cheers

      Some of Fujifilm’s programming doesn’t make sense, but I’m glad that it worked out for you. The X-E line is great, my first Fujifilm camera was an X-E1. Hopefully an X-E4 is in the works.
