Snow Fun with Fujifilm X-T4 & Fujinon 90mm + New Film Simulation Recipe: Amanda’s Classic Negative

Fujifilm X-T4 & Fujinon 90mm – Photo by Amanda Roesch

My wife, Amanda, has a Fujifilm X-T4. She uses it for both stills and video. Amanda pretty much runs the video side of Fuji X Weekly, as that’s something she’s good at, but she also does some occasional portrait and product photography. A few days ago she borrowed my Fujinon 90mm lens, attached it to her X-T4, and on a snowy morning captured some pictures of our kids sledding at a local park (I was shooting with a GFX-50S, you can see some of those pictures here).

Amanda showed me the photographs that she had captured, and I liked the picture aesthetic, so I asked her what settings she used. She told me she just picked some that she thought might look nice, and went with that. She made her own recipe! It’s based on Classic Negative, which is such a great film simulation. I asked her if I could share her pictures and recipe here, and she agreed. Thanks, Amanda!

    Hi Ritchie, Amanda has captured some lovely moments of your family enjoying the winter weather. Will we see more images from Amanda? I think she has an eye for photography as well. And as a bonus, we get to see some photographs of you for a change. 😃

    why is this not compatible with x100v?

      Because it requires +1.5 Shadow. On the X100V you’d have to decide between Shadow +1 or +2. Maybe, if you select +1, go +2 Clarity, or, if you select +2, go -2 Clarity.

      Unfortunately you cannot, because it requires Classic Negative. I still am holding out hope that Fujifilm will give the X-T3 Classic Negative, but at this point it seems like they won’t.

    Great pics! I tried to use my new xt4 and 90mm this weekend and could barely capture any shots. My auto-focus wasn’t working and not sure why 😦
