What I’ve Been Working On (New Film Simulation Recipes Coming Soon!)

The Fuji X Weekly blog keeps me busy!

I haven’t posted anything in several days, but that doesn’t mean I’m not working hard. I have in the works right now five new film simulation recipes that will be ready to publish soon (plus another five that I’m working on, but aren’t ready to publish, plus about 20 on a to-do list). I’ve included a sample picture of each new recipe down below, just as a teaser. I also have two product reviews (one camera and one lens) that are in the early stages of writing; reviews always take a lot of time to complete. Besides that, I’ve been working on some other changes to the blog, which you’ll begin seeing soon (and maybe you’ve already noticed a few). Some of these changes will be bigger than others, and hopefully they will make the Fuji X Weekly experience better in some way.

Even though it might seem quiet, there’s so much going on behind the scenes right now. It’s what keeps the blog moving forward. Good things are coming! I appreciate all of you and I’m honored to have you as a part of this thing. Your support is invaluable to me. The Fujifilm community really is the best!

Now, the teaser pictures! Below are a quick sampling of five new film simulation recipes that will be coming soon.

B&W Superia”

Which one of these five are you most looking forward to? Let me know in the comments!

    Vista 100 and B&W Superia look interesting. I hope they can be adapted to X-Trans III sensors.

      Thank you! There are some recipes compatible with X-Trans III in the works, but neither of those two are. Sorry.

        I hope an X-E4 is in the works from Fujifilm. Maybe in 2021?

    B&W Superia. Would this work for XT3? I’d love a TMax 400 film simulation or FP4 as used to use those films.

    It depends… ๐Ÿ™‚
    If a person uses older camera – non-Classic Negative based simulations are more interesting ๐Ÿ˜€
    Anyhow I am voting for Vista, Kodachrome and Superia.

      It would be nice if something like Fujicolor Superia 800 or something similar could be used for the X-T3. Since many do not have the Classic Neg base

      Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

        I still am holding out hope that Fujifilm will add Classic Negative to the X-T3, but it seems less and less likely.

    Can’t wait to see the changes, your website and work are a great source of inspiration, and I feel like it’s becoming something big (did you see Omar Gonzales Photography’s last video? Hilarious as always, and he talks about your work). It is totally deserved, bravo!

    Great job as always. I use your Vintage Kodachrome preset almost exclusively. I can’t help but wish there was a Kodachrome that emulated the style of Steve McCurry or Alex Webb.

    Is there any chance you’ll work on a Provia simulations that looks something like this? https://www.flickr.com/photos/palikalsi/38207777222/ + https://www.flickr.com/photos/lylevincent/5196488851/

      If you like Vintage Kodachrome, you’ll like Kodachrome 1. I’ve been wanting to tackle Provia 100F. It’s on my to-do list. My X100V Kodachrome 64 recipe is the closest to McCurry or Webb. Thanks for the input!

    How easy or hard is it to put these settings into the camera? Are they then saved to the film simulation settings for future selection?

      Look for “Edit/Save Custom Settings” in the menu. It’s not too difficult to set up.

      It is inspired by Preet! Someone asked me to make a recipe similar to his pictures, and so I did! I reached out to Preet, and he answered. He edits RAW in Lightroom. He says he plans to sell Lightroom presets soon. I showed him my pictures and asked if heโ€™d be interested in the JPEG recipe, and he answered that he doesnโ€™t shoot JPEG only RAW so no thanks.

    + 1 for the Agfa. Compared to Kodak and Fujifilm โ€œ back in the day (70โ€™s, 80โ€™s and 90โ€™s), Agfa had a distinctive subdued rendition. It was often referred to as a European palette. That would be a lovely recipe indeed.
