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.
More recepis, thank you so much Ritchie.
A couple of weeks ai bought a xe4 and an 7artisan les. Really a very nice combination with some of your recipes. I sent you hereby kodak Portra, xpro 62 and tri-x 400, all taken with the artisan 25 mm on f1.8. Really stunning combination. Can’t wait to experiment with your new recipes. Greetings Marcel.
That’s awesome! I appreciate the input and kind words!
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.
Use this one:
There’s also a Portra 400 v2 recipe on the app.
As far as Portra 800, maybe try this one:https://fujixweekly.com/2020/11/03/fujifilm-x100v-film-simulation-recipe-kodak-portra-800/
You’ll have to disregard Color Chrome FX Blue. You can use a diffusion filter to replace Clarity, or try Highlight 0 and Shadow -1. It won’t be exactly the same, but it should be decent.
thank you so much ritchie ! Bu söylediklerni dikkate alacağım. Daha önce hiç analog fotoğraf çekmediğim için senin tecrübelerinden faydalanmak istedim 🙂 Cevap için tekrar teşekkür ederim!
Thanks for doing this Ritchie. I’ve now found two more Fuji photobloggers to follow.
You are welcome!
I think you would definitely be interested in this:
Thank you for sharing this! Much appreciated!
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!
I’m so happy that you like it! I appreciate the feedback and kindness!
