Fujifilm X-Trans IV Recipes

These film simulation recipes are for Fujifilm X-Trans IV sensor cameras. X-Trans IV can be divided into two categories: X-T3 & X-T30, and X100V, X-Pro3, X-T4 & X-S10. The X-T3 & X-T30 cameras don’t have all of the JPEG options that later X-Trans IV models have. All of the X-T3 & X-T30 (as well as X-Trans III) film simulation recipes are compatible with the X100V, X-Pro3, X-T4 and X-S10; however, Grain, Toning (for B&W), and Double-Exposure (for those recipes that call for it) are different, so you’ll have to decide for yourself which equivalent settings should be used on your camera.

Note: Kodak Tri-X 400, Kodak T-Max 400, and Verano Tostado recipes are compatible with all X-Trans III & IV cameras, just follow the directions explained in those recipes.

X-Trans III film simulation recipes are compatible with X-Trans IV cameras.

    Can WB setting be saved? When I switch between different settings, I feel I have to manually set WB.

    Just came across this site, and love what you are doing! Thank you .

    I have a question though, when I create a sustom film simulation ( and save it in the custom film sim settings) , use it , but then decide I want to use one of the Fuji default film simulations, the settings in the camera created by the custom setting remain, thereby messing up the default Fuji simulations .

    How do I switch from let’s say your custom classic slide , to the Fuji film classic chrome quickly without having to go through the entire menu system re-setting the different setting that have been changed by shooting the the custom classic slide.

    Am I missing something?

    I’m using x-pro 3.

      Fujifilm cameras used to have a “Base” setting (in addition to the Custom preset settings in the Q menu). But now, you have to assign one of the custom presets to be a base setting, with everything set to 0 (or whatever you want it to be). I hope this helps!

        Yes it does, thank you Richie,
        Keep up the good work!

    Would you make some for GFX ?

      I would love to! If I ever get my hands on a GFX camera. I have heard that some recipes work well on GFX, but I really don’t know which ones.

    is it possible to get the Superia 100 or Classic Neg. for X-T3?

    • Ritchie Roesch · November 16

      I wish! There were rumors for over a year that Fujifilm was going to bring Classic Negative to the X-T3, but it seems like that’s not happening. It’s really a shame!

    G’day Ritchie, Thank you so much for the work you’ve put in for these recipes, it’s given me a new lease on life ……dramatic I know… but after 50 years, it’s like a new toy for all my bodies. Speaking of which, I noticed in one of your recipe comments about nor being able to change wb options on “older’ cameras – I had the same problem but realized there can be up to 3 wb setting that can be -4r,-2b eg and the one can choose wb1 etc for a particular recipe. It only leaves 3 recipes ready but it’s something.
    I’ve “bought” 2 of your recipes so far and will get more and hope people are doing the right thing to help in at least a small way.
    Thanks again, Adrian

    Hey i love your red scale recipe, but i was wondering if it is possible to create a aerochrome simulation for my fuji x s10. I have seen it in phone apps, but would love it for my camera.


    • Ritchie Roesch · December 28

      I would love to create an aerochrome recipe. That would be amazing! I’m not sure how possible it is (I’m thinking not likely), but it would be great if I could. Thank you for the suggestion!

    Hi Ritchie,
    All the best for 2021 !
    I love to shoot in B&W and until now, I did not find the correct config with my FujiX100V.

    Is it possible that you try to create a recipe B&W equal to LEICA Q2 MONOCHROM. I am sure it will be very appreciated by the community !

    Thanks a lot for your feedback/advice

    • Ritchie Roesch · January 10

      I appreciate the feedback! I’m not real sure exactly what the images from the Leica Q2 Monochrom look like. I’ve never used it myself, and it’s difficult to know on the internet when I’m looking at a sooc picture or software edited picture, or even which of those two options are most desired. It’s my understanding the advantage of the B&W Leica camera is higher resolution/detail, kind of like a Foveon camera without the high-ISO limitation.

    Hello Ritchie,
    Wish you all the best in 2021!
    And thank you very much for all your efforts!

    Hello Ritchie,
    Thanks for the amazing content.
    Been wondering, why do you separate between X-T30 and X-S10 recipes. Don’t they have the same sensor?

    Liked by 1 person

    • Ritchie Roesch · January 12

      Great question! While they have the same sensor, they don’t have the same options. Fujifilm redid some things starting with the X-Pro3, which leaves the X-T3 and X-T30 on an island, in a category by themselves. X-T30 recipes will work on the X-S10 (although, depending on the recipe, there are some decisions you’ll have to make, such as Grain size or B&W Toning, because the options are different), but recipes made for the newer X-Trans IV cameras won’t likely work on the X-T30. Same sensor, different JPEG options. Fujifilm could fix this, though, if they wanted to, and I really hoped that they wanted to, but it doesn’t seem like they do, unfortunately.

    Hi. Thank you very much for your work and for the iPhone application. What would you say is the Fuji setting to get these kinds of pictures? https://martaperezfotografia.com/ Greetings from Spain.

      I appreciate it! Some of those pictures almost have a Pro Neg Hi feel, and some have a Classic Negative vibe, so it’ll be fun to try. Thanks for your suggestion!


  20. Stefan du Plessis · January 16

    Hi there Ritchie. This might be a stupid question: I was wondering if I could use the Kodachrome 64 recipe (X trans IV) on my (X trans III XH1) camera? Or would this dramatically change the color output? Can one use the X trans IV recipes on the older sensors?
    Thanks you

    Is there a resource for sharing settings to the camera X-T30 via the FUJIFILM X Acquire backup? So that I can just download the settings and upload to my camera.
    Sorry for my English, I translated by google translate.

      Not that I’m aware of. There could be a resource somewhere on the internet, but I have never looked into it myself. Sorry that I’m not more helpful.

    Thanks for sharing this. You changed the game for jpeg shooters.

    Fellow Fuji photographers I encourage you to pay this man $5.00 … he earned it for such a valuable resource.
