New Patron Early-Access Recipe: Kodak Portra 400 Warm

Old Trolley Building – Salt Lake City, UT – Fujifilm X100V – “Kodak Portra 400 Warm”

Yesterday I added my Kodak Portra 400 v2 film simulation recipe to the Fuji X Weekly blog. That was a Patron-only early-access recipe on the Fuji X Weekly app, but now it’s available to everyone! I think a lot of people will really appreciate that Portra 400 v2 recipe. Now there’s a new Patron early-access recipe on the app in its place called Kodak Portra 400 Warm. If you are a Fuji X Weekly Patron, check it out!

This new Kodak Portra 400 Warm recipe came about after the Kyle McDougall Portra-Style comparison article. These settings are an attempt to get closer to Kyle’s preset aesthetic. Some film simulation recipes are good for everyday use, some are good only in the right situation. This is one falls into the latter category, I think. This one isn’t for everyone or every situation, but for some people in the right situations, this recipe will be greatly loved! I think it looks best in sunny daylight, but can produce interesting results sometimes in other lighting situations, too.

If you aren’t a Patron, don’t worry. Like all of the early-access recipes, this one will eventually be made available to everyone. Just have patience. If you have the app but aren’t a Patron, yet you want to use this recipe, you can either wait for it to become free or become a Patron and help support the great things that are happening here! Really, Patrons are the ones who are making so much happen because I can’t do it on my own. If you are a Patron, thank you so much for your support!

    To use these newer recipes I have to wait for someone to buy me an X-T3 or X-T4. 🤪

      Maybe a birthday gift or something?

      • Khürt Williams · January 9, 2021

        Perhaps. Although my wife complains I buy my own birthday gifts. 😀

        That’s funny!

    This Portra simulation gives beautiful colours with a real sense of nostalgia; definitely my favourite! What do you think of the Portra 400 simulation provided by Nik software (colour Efex pro 4)? Happy new year!

    • Ritchie Roesch · January 3, 2021

      Thank you! I used to use Nik a lot, but it’s been a few years. Back then they didn’t have a Portra simulation. Maybe I should download it and give it a try. Happy New Year to you, too!

    Thank you!
    I’m using X-T4, I can not find how to set WB 5500K. Where can I find it?

    • Ritchie Roesch · January 3, 2021

      In the IQ section of the Menu, select White Balance. Once in the WB menu, select K, then select 5500K.
