The film simulation recipes below are compatible with Fujifilm X-Trans I sensor cameras, which are the X-Pro1, X-E1 and X-M1. I don’t have many recipes for these cameras yet, but I do plan to grow this list. Feel free to try X-Trans II and Bayer recipes on your X-Trans I camera, as some of them are compatible, but will produce slightly different results. These recipes can be used on X-Trans II and Bayer models, but the results will be slightly different.

Have a Ricoh GR series camera? Check out Ritchie’s Ricoh Recipes!
I donated $5. Let me know if you get it. I appreciate what you are doing.
I did get it! I appreciate your support!
There goes mine. Great job man.
I appreciate it!
Hey Ritchie, I love these recipes and will donate soon, but I find they underexpose the vast majority of times. Any Ideas? I turned the exposure compensation dial to +2/3 and I’m still getting dark images. Thanks
I typically use Multi Metering (and sometimes Spot). Which metering mode do you use?
Found out I was accidentally using the “average” metering option. So maybe that was part of the problem. I Will let you know how it goes. Thanks Ritchie!
I hope it helps
Thanks you very much for all that New recipes for our loved old x-trans 1. Are you planning to made more B&W ?
Just a question about DR and ISO setting… For DR400, for exemple, do you set ISO at 800 minimum ?
(Sorry i’m french😁)
Yes, there will definitely be more! DR400 does indeed require a minimum ISO of 800.
Thanks ! I’m doing well then 🙂 that’s so nice! Thanks you again. (I’ll buy the app in the future)
The X-M1 is a bit of an odd camera: while it has an X-Trans I sensor its internal image processor is the same as in the X100s, X100t, X-E2 etc. Thus jpegs from the X-M1 look look and behave like those from X-Trans II (eg X-M1 has high contrast provia) and not at all like the other Xtrans I cameras X-e1 and X-pro 1 (and x100) which use the older image processor.
So for film recipes I would suggest to list the X-M1 under the X-trans II recipes!
It is the image processor that creates the jpgs, in fact the Xtrans I and II sensors are identical except for the presence of phase detect AF sites. The difference is that all x-trans ii cameras (plus X-M1) use the x processor ii.
It is, in fact, an odd one. The X-A1 also uses the same processor, but a Bayer sensor. X-Trans II is a little warmer than X-Trans I, for whatever reason.
I did a test a couple months back: I shot the same scene, using the same lens and settings, on an X-Pro1, X-M1, and X-T1. The differences weren’t huge, but each camera produced a little different result. The X-M1 was a little closer to the X-Pro1 (in my opinion), yet subtly different. So maybe it should be in a category by itself? I’m not sure.
I appreciate the comment!
Thank you for providing these recipes for the X-M1. This is the X-series that I could afford at this time, and I am very much enjoying it.
Awesome! Happy to be helpful. 😀
I use a lot your recipe for X-Trans III on Fujifilm XPro2 and I love the look of most of them. I try to do the same on my new baby, an XE1 but unfortunately there’s no option to rename the recipe. So isn’t easy to remember which one is which …
Is there a solution for that or should a accept that X-Trans 1 couldn’t do this ?
Being able to custom name the C1-C7 presets began with X-Trans III, and only on the premium models (such as the X-Pro2). So it’s not possible on X-Trans I or II. Some people have made little printouts that they tape to the bottom of the camera, which I’ve actually done before myself, but obviously you have to remove and replace anytime you change the Recipes programmed into C1-C7, which is a hassle.
I just save the current presets, name and details as a note in my phone. That way I can change and update to suit and you soon remember the best ones 😁📷🖤
