The name of this recipe is not a typo. Awhile back I was asked to make a film simulation recipe for Fujifilm X-Trans II cameras that mimic the aesthetic of photographer João Falcão. I was able to create an X-Trans II recipe that was fairly close, although perhaps not exact. Certainly if you like João’s aesthetic, you’ll appreciate those settings. I called that recipe Porto 200 because Porto is the city in Portugal where João is from. While Porto means “port” I think it has a nice film-stock-like name, similar to “Portra” for example. While there is no film called Porto 200, I decided to use the name anyway.
This Porto 200 recipe is an adaptation of the X-Trans II settings for X-Trans III, plus X-T3 and X-T30, cameras. It’s got a great Kodak-like print-film analog aesthetic. If you have a Fujifilm X-Trans III camera, or the X-T3 or X-T30, I invite you to give it a try. This recipe was one of the original Patron Early-Access recipes on the Fuji X Weekly App, but now it is available to everyone, since a different Early-Access recipe has replaced it—if you are a Patron, be sure to look for it on the App!
