    Is there a way to get cinestill 800t working on the x-trans II? I own a x100s and i really love this recipe and the looks of it.

      That’s a great idea! I’ll try working on that.

    Hi Ritchie
    First of all thank you for the awesome work you are making.
    I have a couple of questions
    1. About White balance shift. Some of your recipes require tweak it. I cannot change it from within the Q button, but I have to do it from the Menu instead.
    The problem is that the configuration I make will have effect in all 7 memory banks of my X100F.
    How do I do to keep more than one recipe?
    2. My preferred color photographer is Saül Leiter. When will you publish a recipe for his color?
    Thanks and regards
    Juli

      Regarding the White Balance Shift, only the newest cameras, X-Pro3 and newer) can save the shift within the Q menu. I wish all Fujifilm cameras could. The best workaround is to use different white balances, because the camera will remember a shift per white balance. Or, somehow keep track of the shift and remember to change it each time.
      Regarding Saul Leiter, I believe he used Kodachrome very early on, but switched to color negative film, and he was known for using any film, especially generic store brand and preferring it to be expired. So it’s hard to know exactly.

        I just put the WB shift as part of the custom name when I save the recipe. That allows me to at least see what the shift is. An example name would be “FUJI PRO 400H R2B1”. I wish they would update my firmware to be able to save the WB shift for each custom setting like the XPro 3 does. Maybe I will just buy an XPro 3 to solve the problem. There goes my GAS again.

        Lol! It’s definitely more convenient on the newer cameras that can save the shift. It’s hard to resist the G.A.S.

    Jesus! Youve answered the very question I had in mind of not being able to save the white balance shift.

    I appreciate everything you’ve done here and it’s quite staggering how excellent your new app is!
    An XT2 has been enough for me. I can get most of what I need colour wise with your recipes.
    What makes this special for me? I’m not a colour person! I’m actually a well-known artist for very
    specific black-and-white created with my Nikon gear. With that in mind, the Fuji Acros mode in
    my T2 has been fun to play with. I spent years training myself to see is in B&W for the final RAW edit.
    As many say, they like Fuji as it’s a joy to shoot JPEGs! I agree and your recipes have made my
    experience of colour photography much more enjoyable! Thanks and regards from England.

    I just would like to mirror what others have said to thank you for these recipes. I use them and they’ve been useful. I’m actually leaving room for my own trying to emulate Agfapan 25 of old and something towards effect. Thanks again!

    Having these recipes adds a lot of fun using my X100F and X-T2. Thanks a lot for that. Why mention the camera’s that I use? It would be nice to be able and select the recipes for a certain type. Any chance you can add a filter option?

      These will work on your X100F and X-T2:

      On the iOS app, if you are a Patron, you can search by camera. I’d love to add that ability to the blog, but it’s above my know how, so I would have to hire someone to do it for me. Maybe someday that can happen, or I’ll discover some tool that will allow me to implement it. I appreciate the comment!

    Hey I really appreciate everything you’ve done for us regarding this site!

    Just a quick question, would any of the newer simulations work on a gfx 100 system?

      With the GFX100, I’m not sure if it’s more similar to the X-T3 & X-T30, or more like the X-Pro3, X-T4, X100V, & X-S10. The GFX-50S is more like the X-T3 & X-T30, but the GFX100 is newer, so I’m not sure. The X-T3 & X-T30 recipes (as well as X-Trans III recipes) work on the GFX-50S but the results are very slightly different (still very close, though). I imagine that either the X-T3 & X-T30 or the X-Pro3, X-T4, X100V & X-S10 will be compatible with the GFX100. Sorry that my answer isn’t more definitive.

    Kodak T-Max 400 recipe and image write delay? This recipe produces some great photos and behaves much like the film version. I have noticed something though. It appears that there is a write delay when shooting with this recipe. I have the X100V. Has anyone reported the same? Thank you for the film recipes and this site!

      I believe it is the clarity setting (+4 for this recipe) which is causing the write delay.

        Yes, exactly! Unfortunately Clarity slows things down.

      I appreciate the feedback. Glad that you like the recipe. The delay is from Clarity. Ensuring Boost Mode is enabled helps a little, but Clarity slows things down, unfortunately.

    Hi, thank you very much for the work put into creating these recipes. I use a few of them on my X-T4 and X-T3. A question I have is how to keep these simulations when downloading in Capture One software? Reading the Base Characteristics shows me AUTO but not sure it’s the same simulation as the recipe. Any info on this?

    • Ritchie Roesch · 19 Days Ago

      So, Capture One (and every other RAW editor) will read what the JPEG settings were and will apply its interpretation of those settings to the RAW file, but some things (like Dynamic Range) aren’t applied, and the things that are applied won’t appear exactly the same. There’s really no way to create an identical image to the sooc JPEG without a lot of fiddling.

    Hello!

    I came here because of your Kodachrome Simulation for the X-T30 its beautiful and now my most used recipe, thanks for all that work!

    Have you ever tried to recreate JPEG conversions of other Camera manufacturers?
    I am trying to simulate the look of not a film but the default JPEG Conversion of my old Canon DSLR. The Image it produced, especially for protraits, is a look i am really missing on my Fuji. I think the Kodak Gold comes quite close but not exactly. All my tries to get that look failed really miserable. Would you be interested to try your amazing hand at this? I could provide some sample images (in RAW & JPEG) to show the look I am aiming for.
