Understanding Color Chrome Effect & Color Chrome FX Blue (Videos)

In these two “SoundBites” (as we’re calling it) from Episode 06 of SOOC, Fujifilm X-Photographer Nathalie Boucry and I discuss Color Chrome Effect & Color Chrome FX Blue features on Fujifilm X-Trans IV cameras. These are short snippets from the show, and it gives you an idea of the type of content that’s found in a SOOC broadcast. If you missed Episode 06, I’ve included it below, so you can view it in its entirety if you’d like.

If you’ve never watched, SOOC is a monthly live video series that’s interactive. It’s a collaboration between Nathalie and I. We discuss film simulation recipes, camera settings, and answer your questions. Basically, we’re trying to help you master your Fujifilm camera, with a focus on simplifying your photographic workflow.

The film simulation recipe used in both videos is Kodachrome 64. If you don’t have the Fuji X Weekly App, be sure to download it for free today!

    Hi Ritchie, I’ve been devouring your website ever since I laid my hands on an X-Pro2 a few days ago. I’m trying to learn as much as I can about the new tool I have.

    Is there any way to adjust for the lack of CCE and CC FX Blue in X-Trans III cameras, if we wanted to get that level of depth and punchiness of reds, greens, blues? Would you suggest upping up the Contrast via Lightroom, or tweaking the HSL?

    Don’t get me wrong, I like the recipes you have for X-Trans III cameras, I just wish the reds are a bit more prominent, punchy (kinda like they come out on X-Trans IV and V) and not pale-ish.

      I think you’d have to adjust each color manually, to be both deeper/darker and more vibrant. For Color Chrome FX Blue, a circular polarizer could potentially do the trick.
