Fuji Features: Kodachrome on Fujifilm

The last Fuji Features article was about Monochrome, so this one is about color—more specifically, Kodachrome. For those who don’t know, Fuji Features is a weekly series where I Google some topic related to Fujifilm and post what I find. Each week has a different theme, and this week it’s Kodachrome.

I’ve published a ton of different film simulation recipes named Kodachrome: Vintage Kodachrome, Kodachrome I, Kodachrome II, X-Trans IV Kodachrome II, X-Trans II Kodachrome II, Kodachrome 64, X-Trans II Kodachrome 64, new Kodachrome 64, Kodachrome without Classic Chrome, and even Monochrome Kodachrome. These are popular recipes because Kodachrome was such an iconic film with a special aesthetic. It’s impossible to 100% recreate the film with Fujifilm JPEGs, but it is possible to get pretty close to recreating the feel and magic of it with Fujifilm cameras, something that’s really just incredible when you think about it.

Below you’ll find a bunch of articles and videos that are about using one (or more) of these recipes. I’m sure that I missed a few, so if you know of something that I failed to include, please post a link in the comments.

    I love following this series. It’s nice to see different examples in different environmental conditions.

    It’s not related to the topic, but I want to ask a question. What do you think is the most realistic and closest portra 400 -800 recipe for xt30? I know it’s hard to capture the real analog view But I was curious about your opinion.

    Since a few days I use your recipe of film simulation Kodachrome64. I love the result (X100V).
    In the 80s I only used this film. Thank you for your work, it’s great!
