Fuji Film Simulation: Fujifilm XQ1 + Astia at Mirror Lake (Video)

I just posted the third video in the Fuji Film Simulation series today! This new video, which you’ll find above, is about using the new X-Trans II Astia film simulation recipe at Mirror Lake in Utah on a Fujifilm XQ1 camera. I want to give a special “thank you” to Fuji X Weekly reader Gus Potenza for loaning me his camera. It’s been a lot of fun to shoot with!

If you like this video, give it a “thumbs up!” I invite you to share it on your social media. Be sure to leave a comment—I appreciate the feedback!

If you don’t follow me on YouTube, be sure to do so! There are many more videos in the works. These projects take up a lot of time, so they’ve been slow to come out, but my hope is to release a new video each week. That may or may not happen; if you don’t subscribe you might miss them when they do come out. I appreciate everyone who has already hit that Subscribe button!

My wife, Amanda, is the one who created this video. She did all of the videography and editing. If you’re interested, the gear she used (accompanied by affiliate links; yes, I will be compensated a small amount if you purchase something using those links) is listed below. Let me know if you’d like to see more of the video side of things, and what specifically you’d be interested in. Thanks!

    Love the Fuji Industrial simulation.
    One of the last actual films I tried before i switched to digital mostly. I didnt know what it was and presumed it was repackaged pro or superia. Tempted to scan it now as i havent actually seen the images.

    The sim is very good for foliage. Foliage can be difficult, having the right amount of greens, either making then unrealistically saturated or removing all their colour. so i the woods on the right day came across warm and enhanced on leaves making them pop without oversaturation.
    Can look weird taking some other subjects (brown muddy paths, rocks) but not bad weird.

      I love the Fujicolor Industrial recipe, too. One of my favorites, and definitely underrated. I appreciate the input! Thanks!
