Fujifilm X-Trans II Recipes

These film simulation recipes are intended for Fujifilm X-Trans II cameras, such as the X100S, X100T, X-E2, X-E2S, X-T1, X-T10, X70, X20, X30, XQ1, and XQ2. Not all of these recipes are compatible with every X-Trans II camera, because some of the older X-Trans II models don’t have all of the film simulations that later ones have. Some of these recipes will work on X-Trans I and Bayer cameras with slightly different results. Feel free to try X-Trans I and Bayer recipes on your X-Trans II camera, although results will be slightly different.

    For some reason my X-T1 does not have color settings such as adjusting red or blue as suggested in this post. Currently running latest firmware.

    I have the same problem. When I enter the menu to adjust the custom settings and I reach white balance, I can only choose between Auto and so on, but I cannot adjust the blue or the red specifically.

      You can’t adjust the red and blue when you’re editing/creating a custom setting, you need to back out of there and go into IQ White Balance where you can arrow right and make the adjustments to the red and blue. Basically the Red/Blue adjustment happens outside of the custom setting at the White Balance stage, so if you’re switching between custom settings you might want to check your white balance settings are right on. Just like you need to do with the exposure settings when jumping between custom settings.

    Hi Richie, many people seem to love the X-trans II sensor because of the filmic and slightly warmer look. I think about buying a x100t. The x100v is too expensive for me. What do you think about this camera? Currently I shoot with a 6D mark ii and an xf10. Will it be very different from the xf10 as far as Image quality is concerned? Regards Lars

      The X100T will be similar to the XF10. The X100T is a higher-end model than the XF10, but also older. I think image quality will be pretty similar, but not identical. If you like the XF10, I imagine that you’ll equally like the X100T, and perhaps enjoy it a little more than the XF10. I hope this is helpful.

    Hi Ritchie. I absolutely love your work with these recipes. Just recently stumbled across your site and when I saw your images I couldnt resist – I had to try them:) So I dusted my trusty X-E2S and started shooting. I cant remember the last time i had so much fun trying different simulations for different scenarios and the results – they are all amazing. You brought the joy of photography to my life again and for that I am grateful 🙂 Maybe one question: Are you planning to create a Portra 400 recipe for Trans II sensor?? That one brings so many memories. I have tried to recreate it myself, but the settings still elude me. Thank you for all your work and I am so excited to see new recipes.

      Thank you! I hope to make an X-Trans II Portra 400. I tried once unsuccessfully, but I won’t give up. I appreciate your kind words!

    Hi Ritchie,
    I wonder what’s your favorite go to recipe for X-trans II (colour)? And what would you use on overcast and dull days?
    Cheers, Lars

      My go-to recipe for X-Trans II is actually the Bayer Classic Chrome recipe. For overcast, try the original Classic Chrome recipe for X-Trans II.

    Hey, I just tried the portra 160 and the portra V2 and absolutely love them on my X100T. I was just wondering if you still plan on working on a portra 400 recipe for the X TRANS 2 sensor. I just love the look of portra 400. Greetings from Germany, Ken

      Thanks! I was working on one, but got a nasty dust spot on my X-T1 sensor. I need to clean it, but haven’t gotten around to it. As soon as I do I’ll work on it more. Thanks so much for your input!
