There are some film simulation recipes that just have a special look—the “it factor”—and this “Creamy Color” recipe is definitely one of those! I didn’t make it; this one was created by Immanuel Sander, who also created the Nature Neon recipe. Immanuel was kind enough to allow me to publish his recipe on the Fuji X Weekly blog, and he also gave me permission to include some of his wonderful photographs in this article. Thank you, Immanuel, for creating and sharing this recipe! I encourage you to follow him Instagram.
Immanuel created a great YouTube video for this recipe that you should watch. It’s very inspirational—well done!
“It’s a rather emotional recipe for me,” Immanuel explained. “The recipe works very well in bad weather and dreary colors. Foggy weather or rainy days are perfect for such silent pictures.” I think it also works well around sunset and on partly-cloudy days. The results from this Creamy Color film simulation recipe can be fantastic! Because this recipe requires Classic Negative, Clarity and Color Chrome FX Blue, it’s only compatible with the Fujifilm X100V, X-Pro3, X-T4, X-S10 and the upcoming X-E4.

kudos to Immanuel Sander and thank you for sharing!!!
Yes, thank you Immanuel!
Looks great. Will it be updated for the XT-30? 🙂
Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s possible unless Fujifilm updates the camera with Classic Negative. I hope they do, but I’m doubtful at this point.
You are right. I hope Fuji doesn’t upset us. Good luck with your studies. 🙂
I appreciate it!
I like this moody look. I think it would be great for the grey cold snow-on-top-of-snow weather we’ve had in New Jersey recently.
It very much could be! I think it might be great for that type of weather.
This is fantastic.
Championing other artists work and vision, on and as your platform is a joy to see.
I appreciate it so much!
The shots do look great, indeed! Punched it in, waiting for bad wheather now … 😀
Let’s see whether this one gets to be a resident on my Q screen. I did try Nature Neon, as well, but in the end, I found it was “too much” in most situations, for me. Nevertheless – big thanks both to you and Immanuel for giving us the chance to try it out for ourselves 🙂
Awesome! I hope this one works out for you!
That’s is a beautiful recipe, I really like the colours and how moody the pictures are.
I wish this or similar recipe for the Fuji XT20 because I love it.
By the way thank you for your hard work regarding the recipes and for this website!
Well done. 👍
Unfortunately it’s not possible on the X-T20. Maybe I should come up with something, though.
I appreciate your kind words and feedback!
Love this recipe. We have loads of “poor” weather where I live. It’s a shame that it won’t work on my x-t30. Any suggestions for adapting it or alternatives with a similar feel?
Unfortunately, you cannot get this look on the X-T30 (Fujifilm, fix this, please!). I don’t have a good alternative, other than Nature Neon.
You can use a diffusion filter to replace Clarity.
I loaded this recipe into my XT30ii to try on a icy, gloomy and Autumnal UK morning and very impressed. Perfect for those dull, cold and gloomy days. Unfortunately plenty of those in England 🤣
Awesome! So glad for the report!
