Comparing Fujifilm Film Simulation Recipes To Film (Videos)

The Snap Chick YouTube channel recently published a video where they compare actual Kodak Tri-X 400 film with the Kodak Tri-X 400 film simulation recipe. It’s a very fascinating video! If you’re looking for something to do, give it a watch—it’s about 15 minutes long. Definitely worth your time.

While we’re on this topic, check out the two videos below, which compare actual Kodak Portra 400 film with my Kodak Portra 400 recipes (the top video is this Portra 400 recipe, and the second video is this Portra 400 recipe).

    I shoot 35mm film and use your film simulation recipes. It’s easier to make the comparison. All else being equal, the film sims are great but not a substitute for the real thing.😀

      There’s nothing like film except for film, but I enjoy trying to get as close as possible with the limited tools available. There’s definitely advantages and disadvantages to both, and the hope is to get as close as possible to the advantages of both. But of course one can only get so close. I appreciate the comment!
