Creative Collective 002: When Film Simulation Bracket Is Actually Useful

All Fujifilm X cameras have a feature called Film Simulation Bracket. Select three different film simulations, and the camera will process each exposure as three different images using whichever film simulations you selected. Unfortunately, with Film Simulation Bracket, you cannot change any other parameter, only the film simulation. This means that the camera will not apply three different film simulation recipes. When Fujifilm designed this feature, I’m sure that they were unaware of how people would be using their cameras, and Film Simulation Bracket definitely demonstrates that. Instead of what it is, it should be Custom Preset Bracket—you pick three different C1-C7 presets, and the camera will generate an image using each with every exposure. That would be amazing! But, sadly, that’s not an option. I’ve never really liked or used Film Simulation Bracket until recently, and I discovered that it can sometimes be a useful tool.

In this article we will look at what Film Simulation Bracket is, how to use it, and when it is a useful feature.

    Well, the Fujicolor Pro 400H should fit, actually… In the article where you describe the 7-in-1 recipe you say that besides the film it calls for (Pro neg If I remember correctly) it will perform well with all the film simulations available…

    I use it with classic chrome as default and I tried also Velvia, for the autumn foliage, with great results
