The Fuji X Weekly app is free, yet becoming a Fuji X Weekly Patron unlocks the best App experience! One benefit of being a Patron is you get early access to some new film simulation recipes. These Early-Access Recipes will eventually become available free to everyone in time, including this new one. In fact, all of the original Early-Access Recipes have been publicly published on this blog and the App, so everyone can now use them. Patrons help support Fuji X Weekly and, really, without them there would be no App, so I want to give a special “thank you” to all of the Patrons!
This new recipe is called “Fujichrome Provia 100F” after the film that it is intended to mimic. Fujifilm introduced Provia 100 in 1994, and replaced it with the much improved Provia 100F in 2001. I’ve only shot a couple of rolls of Provia 100F. I remember that it had a cool color cast (especially when compared to Kodak films), it had a fair amount of contrast, moderate saturation, and tended to render blues strongly. This recipe has been in the works for awhile, with a lot of failed attempts. I think it does pretty well at reproducing the aesthetic of the film, but there are definitely a few compromises—more of the “memory color” that Fujifilm talks about, than perhaps a 100% accurate rendition. Still, I believe that it turned out pretty well overall.
If you are a Fuji X Weekly Patron, it’s available to you right now on the App!
Example photographs captured using this “Fujichrome Provia 100F” film simulation recipe on my Fujifilm X100V:
I accidentally stumbled across your website a few days ago while watching a YouTube video about the Fuji X100V, in which the sample photos were taken with the Kodak Portra 400 recipe. The YouTuber referred to your website.
All I can say is “WOW”… what a great job you did there. I really love it…also the app. I also like that you don’t just present the recipes but also tell how you developed them, with great sample photos.
I have the Fuji X-T4 and love the analog handling, looks, and also the jpeg film simulations. Unfortunately, I don’t have the creativity to develop recipes myself. So thank you very much for all the time and work you put into it.

Thank you so much for your kind words! So glad that you found the website!
