    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.

    • Ritchie Roesch · November 10, 2020

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

      • spearofneptune · November 10, 2020

        That would be awesome 🙂 Thank you

    • Dan · August 9, 2021

      Some of the RNI’s Kodak profiles look surprisingly similar to Cinestill. And they are profiled to the x-trans cameras too.

      Overall, I’m finding the RNI film profiles (google for All Films 5) more sophisticated and accurate than the Fuji’s built-in simulations. Again, google for RNI Fuji Pro 160NS vs Fuji Classic Neg comparisons.

      • Ritchie Roesch · August 10, 2021

        I’ve used RNI. In fact, I have two of their apps on my phone right now. They do good work. Alien Skin Exposure is probably better than RNI for desktop. However, I almost never use RNI (or Exposure) because it adds significant time to my workflow and I’d be less productive. Also, for me, shooting recipes is much more fun. I prefer to spend the least amount of time possible sitting in front of a computer or fiddling on my phone. That’s just me, everyone is different. Thanks for the comment!

  2. Juli Mohedano · November 11, 2020

    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

    • Ritchie Roesch · November 12, 2020

      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.

      • Juli · November 16, 2020

        Thanks Ritchie for your explanations

      • John Huff · February 26, 2021

        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.

      • Ritchie Roesch · February 27, 2021

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

  3. Gabriel Quezada · November 28, 2020

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

    Thank you

    • Ritchie Roesch · November 30, 2020

      I’m glad to be helpful! Thank you for the comment!

  4. James T · December 6, 2020

    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.

    • Ritchie Roesch · December 7, 2020

      I appreciate you comment! I love your story! Thank you for sharing it with me. I enjoy helping other photographers, and I’m so happy to hear that I’ve been helpful to you. Thank you for this comment!

  5. Kiran Mohanty · December 9, 2020

    Really glad to have come across this website. You are doing a great job mate.

    • Ritchie Roesch · December 9, 2020

      Thanks so much! I appreciate your kind words of encouragement!

  6. John Pease · December 14, 2020

    Will you do any Agfa recipes?
    I used to use RSX100 and RSX50 slide film a lot.

    • Ritchie Roesch · December 14, 2020

      Well, I have a done a few Agfa recipes, but not RSX100 or RSX50. I’ll add them to my list. Thanks for the suggestion!

  7. Don · December 21, 2020

    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!

    • Ritchie Roesch · December 21, 2020

      Awesome! Thank you, Don! I appreciate your kind words.

  8. Louis · December 22, 2020

    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?

    • Ritchie Roesch · December 23, 2020

      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!

  9. Xerwin · December 29, 2020

    Good Day Sir.

    Your works are great. I had been following and subscribed to your emails. I wonder if you are working to have an android version of this app.🤗 Im hoping that you could create one for android user too. Please?.🙇. I will be delighted to know when it will be released. Do you have a youtube channel too? so I can follow as well?. Thank you and God bless.

  10. Timothy Smith · January 19, 2021

    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?

    • Ritchie Roesch · January 19, 2021

      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.

  11. TAMMY MURRAY · February 4, 2021

    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!

    • Tammy · February 4, 2021

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

      • Ritchie Roesch · February 7, 2021

        Yes, exactly! Unfortunately Clarity slows things down.

    • Ritchie Roesch · February 7, 2021

      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.

  12. Louay Ahmed · February 4, 2021

    is there one for the Fujifilm X-Pro3?

  13. Tammy · February 5, 2021

    I believe it is the same as the recipe I am using for the X100V. The ‘Fuji X Weekly – Film Recipes’ app has the recipes with camera and sensor compatibility.

  14. Elazar · February 16, 2021

    Will this app be made for android?

    • Ritchie Roesch · February 16, 2021

      That’s being worked on. It’s almost done! Hopefully within the next two weeks.

  15. Walter Thomson · February 17, 2021

    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 · February 17, 2021

      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.

      • Tin · January 27

        Is that true for Fuji X Raw software as well?

      • Ritchie Roesch · January 27

        Not for X RAW Studio, which uses the camera to process the RAW file. It’s the same as reprocessing in-camera, except that you can see it bigger on your computer and save an unlimited number of recipes.

  16. Matthias Maschek · February 26, 2021


    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.

    • Ritchie Roesch · February 27, 2021

      I would love to see some JPEGs. If you have a link or if you want to send the pictures, my email is I appreciate the input and suggestion! –Ritchie

  17. Darren O'Brien · March 10, 2021

    I have owned fuji cameras for years and have only just realised this is a thing! The Kodachrome simulation for the X100V is really nice. I am mostly a Black and white photographer and struggle to get consistency in my colour work, but this has helped!

    I am also just discovering the Fujifilm X Raw software and really like how you can use these recipes with that too. If only you could output images in Tiff format, but for now its been great.

    • Ritchie Roesch · March 15, 2021

      Awesome! I do wish that saving in TIFF was an option, that would be nice.
      I’m glad that you’ve found these recipes useful. Kodachrome is one of my favorites, too. Thanks for the input!

  18. Mike · April 12, 2021

    Hey Ritchie, love these recipes, thank you for your hard work! I have a question, which you may have half answered above, just want to clarify. At the moment I shoot in RAW only, so I’ve been making sure that Lightroom imported and applied the camera settings so that my RAW files would have the right film simulation in tact. Works great for the default simulations. Is there any way to do this with recipes? i.e to import all the other settings that get changed (shadows, highlights, clarity, etc..)? Sorry if this is more specific to editing software than your recipes, I just can’t figure out how to recreate something in post that looked great on camera without shooting in JPEG. Thanks!

    • Ritchie Roesch · April 12, 2021

      Lightroom (and really every RAW processor) doesn’t apply its interpretation to every JPEG setting, unfortunately. It would be nice if they did! Like you found out, many of the settings just aren’t interpreted by the software. I think a nice alternative would be if Fujifilm cameras could save in TIFF. The X-T4 can I believe when using X RAW Studio, but not sooc. If you could save in TIFF in-camera, then you’d have more editing flexibility if you needed to post-process, or if you liked the sooc image, then you’re done.

  19. Marek · April 14, 2021

    Hey Ritchie, what would be your simulation choice for artificial low-light (ex.tungsten, led, mixed) indoor shots ?

  20. Max · April 14, 2021

    There is one thing I don’t like about this website…And it’s the fact that I realised 7 is not enough space for these custom recipes 😀
    Thank you so much for putting all this work into these! Now that I have my X-E4 I noticed that it seems even easier to set custom presets – and I’m using JPEG about 95% of the time with your awesome recipes.

    • Ritchie Roesch · April 16, 2021

      7 isn’t enough. But, on your X-E4, you can Acros 8! Thank you for your comment! I appreciate your kind words.

  21. Gill · May 16, 2021

    I just bought a XT-4 and I’m just a hobbyist photographer so forgive me if this question is silly. When applying these recipe settings, what image quality should I use? Raw? Fine? Normal?

    Thank you for all the hard work you’ve put in to crafting these recipes!

    • Ritchie Roesch · May 17, 2021

      I use RAW+JPEG Fine. You can use JPEG and Normal if you prefer, but I recommend what I use.

  22. mat · May 31, 2021

    hey there!
    many thanks for your great work!!
    What recipes (color & b&w) would you recommend to get a consistent result, working with a x-t1 and x-t3 at the same time? I like porto and triX for example.. Sure experimenting myself would be better, but I get you have a way better understanding of those machine than I…
    Thanks a lot

    • Ritchie Roesch · June 1, 2021

      Try Kodachrome 64, Kodachrome II, Ektachrome 100SW, Portra 160, Kodacolor, Eterna, and Agfa Optima. There are versions of these for the X-T1 and X-T3. There will some variations in the exact output, but they’ll look very similar to each other. I don’t think that there are any B&W recipes that are close matches. Hope this helps!

      • Mat · June 2, 2021

        Will do, many thanks!!

  23. Ernesto Robina · June 18, 2021

    Thank you so much for sharing these wealth, Ritchie! Much appreciated mate.
    I have a quick question though, when using these custom recipes, which metering mode do you often use or does it matter? Thanks again and more power to you!

    • Ritchie Roesch · June 18, 2021

      I most often use Multi, but sometimes Spot. It doesn’t matter because each exposure should be judged individually. The suggested exposure compensation is just to nudge you in what’s hopefully the right direction.

  24. Enrico Bianchi · June 19, 2021

    This project is great, you are doing an awesome job! I moved to X-T3 from 13 years of Nikon (D90, Z50) since few weeks, and I’m going crazy for all this simulation possibilities, like a kid in a toy shop…
    I’m wondering if, provided the parameters to be the same, recipes born for X-trans III will work the same on X-trans IV cameras like mine. In other words, are the recipes upwards-compatible?

    • Ritchie Roesch · June 21, 2021

      X-Trans III recipes are fully compatible with the X-T3. X-Trans II, X-Trans I and Bayer recipes are not. I appreciate your kind words!

  25. Viviana Biazzo · June 27, 2021

    You recipes are amazing, the work you put the tweak and test them, really impressed.
    Was wondering, have you ever attempted at reproducing Lucy Laucht’s visual style? I believe she shoots mainly with a Leica, but I was wondering what we can do with Fuji to get similar results.

    • Ritchie Roesch · June 27, 2021

      That’s an interesting look. It’s clearly a preset that’s intended to produce a film-like look. I’ll see if I can recreate it. I appreciate the suggestion!

      • Ben · August 3, 2022

        Hi, did you ever have any luck with creating a look similar to Lucy’s. Always been a big fan so would be great to see it if you had. Many thanks

      • Ritchie Roesch · August 3, 2022

        I think so, but it’s still a work-in-progress. Stay tuned!

  26. Guy Philip Sleeman · July 24, 2021

    is there a way to search recipes?
    i.e. I have reviewed my photos and can see what the settings were for the highlights shadows etc, but cannot tell what recipe it was from. Thanks

    • Ritchie Roesch · July 25, 2021

      No, not yet. You can browse them (both on this website and app), and there is a search feature on the website (top-right “hamburger” menu), but it searches the entire website, not just recipes. It’s something that I want to implement in the future. Sorry that I’m not more helpful.

  27. Dusty Framer · August 2, 2021

    Hey Ritchie – Loving the blog and App! Up until discovering your blog, I never really felt satisfied with my XT30. Now I’m loving it! I’ve gone with your advice and chosen different WB recipes for the 7 slots – was wondering if there is an easy way/guide on how to use the 3 custom white balance’s to maybe substitute one/some of the recipes that use common WBs? EG If I can get say Kodachrome 64 to use a custom WB with R2/B5 shift, that way I can still program Portra 160 with the R4/B5 Shift for Daylight. Any tips on Matching a custom WB to one of the static WB’s so I might be able to substitute? Thanks in Advance! Cheers

  28. Kev Beau · August 8, 2021

    Hi Ritchie, love the recipes will donate shortly! What recipe would you recommend (xTrans 3) when trying to get that Alan Schaller high contrast B&W look? Thanks!

    • Ritchie Roesch · August 9, 2021

      I appreciate your kindness!
      Alan shoots with a Leica and edits his RAW files, but a lot of his look is simply dramatic light. So the first place to start is not with a recipe, but with light. As for recipes, look at Acros Push Process, Kodak Tri-X 400, and Ilford HP5 Plus. Even the original Acros recipe might do the trick. I hope this helps!

    • Ritchie Roesch · August 9, 2021

      Interestingly, I stumbled across this video. Maybe you’ll find it useful.

  29. Paul · November 13, 2021

    Hi, I’ve got a few suggestions that might improve the app. 1) a search field, for obvious reasons, 2) a way to select and keep favourites.
    Any idea if this might be possible?

    • Ritchie Roesch · November 16, 2021

      I appreciate the suggestion. A search field would be great. There have been a couple of issues with implementing it (largely, it working offline), but I do hope to someday include it. As far as Favoriting, that’s already an option if you are a Patron, but it’s going to get a whole lot better very soon. Thank you for the input!

  30. Chris · November 15, 2021

    It seems there are few recipes for x-t3. Any idea why? How will attempts at recipes for other models turn out if put into x-t3?

    • Ritchie Roesch · November 16, 2021

      There are over 70 recipes on this website that are directly compatible with the X-T3. Look at the bottom-half of the X-Trans IV page (under X-T3/X-T30) and X-Trans III. Also, on the Fuji X Weekly App, if you are a Patron, you can Filter by camera, and see all of them there.

      • Chris · November 16, 2021

        Thank you! I’ll have a look.

  31. Dick · November 28, 2021

    Hi Ritchie,
    Thank you for your continued service and the upgrade to the app! 🙏❤️ You must have a long list of recipe request but could you find it in your heart to put and old wish to rest and some how make a GAF. 500 slide film AND a Agfachrome 1000 slide simulation? Not even as a early Christmas present ?

    • Ritchie Roesch · November 29, 2021

      GAF 500 is something I’ve wanted to tackle. I’ll have to look into Agfachrome 1000. Thanks for your kind words and the suggestions!

  32. Rob B. · January 7, 2022

    Ritchie, a big thank you goes out to you! I really love what you are doing here. Currently experimenting with your recipes and loving it already. SO much fun!

    I stumbled upon a few retro-style pictures from Goodwood events and I was wondering if this grading could also be done with a recipe? Really flat contrast with only light shadows but still rich in color.

    Example see here (from

    Do you know a recipe that can achieve similar results I can experiment with?
    Cheers, Rob

    • Ritchie Roesch · January 7, 2022

        Hi Ritchie, I own a XT4.

      • Ritchie Roesch · January 10, 2022

        I’ll see what I can do. It’s definitely a cool look.

      Sarebbe davvero interessante questa pellicola!

  33. Rob B. · January 12, 2022

    Much appreciated! I’m looking forward to what you might come up with. I’m still too clumsy to define a look I want to with these settings.

  34. Malcom · February 17, 2022

    Hi Ritchie.

    Given that the X-T3 has the same X-Trans IV sensor like the newer models, and assuming the same parameter settings, (disregarding Classic Negative), I am wondering why are there certain X Trans IV recipes like the Kodak Gold v2 not listed for the X-T3. Are they not compatible? Can you justify this?

    Thank you very much.

    • Ritchie Roesch · February 17, 2022

      It’s more than just Classic Negative. Clarity, Color Chrome FX Blue, and Grain size are all different, among other things. So for Kodak Gold v2 you could use a 1/8 Black Pro Mist or 5% CineBloom to replicate Clarity (since the X-T3 doesn’t have it). That recipe doesn’t call for CCEB, so you’re good there, but if it did that would be an issue. Then ignore Grain size, since that’s not an option on your camera. That will allow you to use it. So, with some modifications, sometimes these recipe can be used, but they’re not directly compatible. Even though it’s the same sensor and processor, it’s like two different generations of cameras.

  35. don andreas · March 13, 2022

    Hi again, Ritchie. Do you have any tutorials (here or on youtube) on how to post on instagram without loosing image quality- I`ve searched, but I can`t seem to find any. Looking to start up an account, posting pictures using my brand new second hand low shutter count x-t30 and your brilliant recipes, but there are so many theories on how to keep image quality whilst posting, I`m kind of lost, going nuts, don`t know who to listen to anymore. Took a look at your account and your pictures looks amazing.. figure if you`re the mastermind behind these recipes, you can be trusted as well when it comes to how to keep said quality.

    • Ritchie Roesch · March 16, 2022

      I don’t do anything special. IG doesn’t do a great job resizing, but not terrible, either. FB is terrible (not sure why the difference since it’s the same company…). It’s my understanding the IG resizes to 1080px width (bottom/top, not left/right), if this makes any sense. I’m sure your software of choice will allow you to resize to that, and will do a better job than IG. But I don’t bother with that, I just post it without doing anything special.

  36. don andreas · March 13, 2022

    ps! I use lightroom mobile to resize and choose sRGB, image quality et cetera, et cetera

  37. don andreas · March 17, 2022

    Thank you for answering. Also, I sold my newly bought second hand XT30, for less than I gave for it.. Tried to resist the urge, but some of these new recipes are jaw-dropping, left me in awe, so in the end I had to succumb; I sold it and bought a brand new XT30 II. All these reviewers saying the XT30 and XT30 II is basically the same camera, nearly rendering the mark II a useless upgrade, clearly hasn’t seen the results from your Xpro ’62, LomoChrome Metropolis, Kodak Portra 400, and so on and so on and so on recipes… For someone who used to love photography as a kid, even if just a novice/hobbyist level, back when we all used film, and can’t even stand the thought of processing pictures sitting in front of an computer; someone who can’t stand processing at all… what can I say.. you brought the joy back, you showed me magic is real.. *Can’t wait to start shooting. Thank you, man.

    • Ritchie Roesch · March 20, 2022

      There’s a pretty significant difference between the two models for the JPEG photographer. It’s just too bad that Fujifilm didn’t update the original X-T30 to give you those things, and you had to purchase the new model. In any event, I’m certain you’ll love the new camera! I appreciate your kind words.

        Which recipes would you recommend for someone using X-T30? I bought it a while ago and can’t really change to XT30II any time soon.

        Thanks in advance if you ever reply.

      • Ritchie Roesch · June 13, 2022

        Go to this page, and scroll about halfway-ish down, and you’ll find the X-T30 recipes:

        Also, you can use X-Trans III recipes on that camera.

    Hi, first of all thank you for the work you do! i’m new with fuji i have a xt30II, i don’t understand how to shoot with custom settings created based on your recipes. I can create it but not use it. Thanks for the reply.

    In October 2021 I bought a brand new x100f over the V while in the USA ( had heard about some heating issues & did not want a touch screen ) as a street camera to fill the Gap between my Nikon & iPhone.
    Heard about the recipes by you & well tried to feed them in but somehow I have failed at the process, I feel it changes my camera settings / does it alter the already fed-in Simulations within the Camera?
    But my question is whatever changes I make to get a Recipe can be done by me on Lightroom on the Image correct so then why do I do it in Camera ???
    also on the X100F, I am unable to name the Custom setting why ??
    Lastly, this is for any other FujiX100 users & this is my personal view I bought it as a street shooter but somehow it felt too small & the Autofocus was just never up to the mark for me in real-life conditions BUT BUT recently I did some Boudoir shoots & surprisingly as strange as it may sound it’s Just perfect at least to me as a camera for Boudoir shoots don’t know why but it trumps my Nikon ( & as a digital shooter never shoot B&W always do that in the post ) but in this new ART form I use Acros all the time…hence wanted to learn how to use the recipes.
    Thou in LR I do edit but they seem perfect and require very minimal or no edit on my JPEGS.
    Apologies for the Long post…..Probably my very first & last Post here…..lots of Love to all Fuji Lovers from BOMBAY / India 🙂 you can see my work on Insta at @rajsingharora with my FUJI.
    YES also played with a lot of 35mm film this year & varied ANALOG cameras and personally found the Fuji Superia 400 to be the best most spectacular in results over all the Kodak films I shot especially over the POTRA & ILFORD 400.

      Lightroom (or any other RAW editor) will apply its version of its interpretation of some (but not all) of the JPEG data to the RAW. So it can get you a start, but you’ll still have to edit to try to make it “match” the straight-out-of-camera JPEG. The advantage of using the recipes is that you don’t need to edit your pictures if you don’t want to—they’re good to go the moment they’re captured.
      I don’t know why Fujifilm doesn’t allow for custom naming C1-C7 presets on the X100F… I believe some X-Trans III cameras can, and all X-Trans IV can.
      When you program a recipe into C1-C7, it “deletes” that built-in preset; however 1) these aren’t anything special (they are defaults with everything set to 0, Off, or Auto) and 2) they’re pretty easy to reset should you ever want to.
      I hope this helps!

    Any updates for H2s ? For recipes

    • Ritchie Roesch · October 3

      From the reports I have received, the X-Trans IV recipes for the X-Pro3 & newer models are fully compatible with, and render nearly identically on, the X-H2 and X-H2s; however, I have not used either camera to know for certain.

  41. Aaron · October 4

    Aloha from Hawaii. I just purchased the Fuji X-H2s and was wondering if you’ll be adding any new film recipes for that camera? I’ve been testing the X-Trans IV recipes but I’m not sure that is correct. Any info would be great. Love your site. Thank you for your work and knowledge.

    • Ritchie Roesch · October 5

      It’s my understanding from the reports I have received that the X-Trans IV recipes for the X-Pro3 and newer models are fully compatible and render nearly identically on the X-H2s, but I have no personal first-hand experience to say for certain. But I have no reason to think they wouldn’t be fully compatible, either, so I think you’re good to use those recipes.

    Hi Ritch,

    Thanks for this site!
    Do you feel the screen of x-e4 is quite different to the screen of an iPhone ? I find when the photos looks good in the x-e4 screen but when I transferred to iPhone it looks pale. Is there any settings of the screen we can modify to more close to an iPhone screen ?

  43. Karl · October 17

    Hi Ritch,

    The landscape photos and recipes are great ! Do u suggest which recipes are good for shooting daily portraits that the color of skin look nice ?


  44. Joshed · November 29

    This is a great site and resources for film simulation recipes. Is there that much difference between the sensors that recipes aren’t translatable?

    I have a GFX 50R and see that most of the X-Trans recipes can be loaded and saved as presets on the 50R with the exception of the Clarity, Color Chrome FX Blue options that are in the later X-Trans recipes. With any recipe with a half step increments I just round to the nearest whole increment which gets me mostly in the area.

    • Ritchie Roesch · November 30

      X-T3/X-T30 recipes are fully compatible, technically, with the GFX 50R. Color rendition is slightly different, but it’s very subtle and not a big deal whatsoever. Shadow rendering is the biggest difference, as shadows are lighter on the GFX camera. Adding +1 Shadow is too much. A +0.5 adjustment would probably be close, but the GFX 50R doesn’t have that. However, it’s about finding what works best for you, and not whether something is precise or not. If you’ve modified (“seasoned to taste”) a recipe to make it work for you, that’s great!

    Hi Ritch,

    I really appreciate your work, and I have to correct you in the Bayer sensor segment, you included the first-gen x100 which actually has an EXR sensor
    speaking of EXR I’d like to see if any of these recipes work with EXR cameras like the x100, and x10…etc
    I am buying an x10 tomorrow though I did not find any film sims for it online 🙁


    • Ritchie Roesch · January 9

      You are right, the original X100 is EXR and not Bayer. Fujifilm abandoned EXR with the introduction of X-Trans. The X100 and X10 are older models, and not too many are still using them (according to a survey that I conducted last year). I would look at X-Trans I and Bayer recipes… those that use Provia, Velvia, and Astia should be “technically” compatible, but you’ll have to see if you like the rendering, which is likely slightly different.

  46. Grace · January 11

    Hi! do you have any simulations for the X10?

    • Ritchie Roesch · January 11

      No, not really. You can try X-Trans I recipes, there should be some level of cross-compatibility, but likely a slight variance in rendering.

  47. AJ · January 22

    I am purchasing XT100 for just film simulations but after reading up I am under the impression that simulations are very much restricted on that model. How much difference can it make when purchasing only for the simulations?

    • Ritchie Roesch · January 23

      The X-T100 has fewer options and fewer recipes. It’s a good camera, but more limited when compared to other Fujifilm models. I would recommend an X-T30 II or X-E4 if you can afford it, or if you cannot, the X-T30, X-T20, and X-E3 are other models to consider.

  48. Joe · February 11

    Hey, your website is phenomenal! I recently picked up a Fuji X10 as a daily and it’s so much fun to use. I’ve found the article about it and was wondering if there are more „recipes“ for this little gem.

    Thanks a lot for all of your work! 👍

    • Ritchie Roesch · February 14

      I would try X-Trans I recipes, but just know that they will render slightly differently on the X10.

  49. Walter · February 16

    Hey, Ritchie
    Again, outstanding work you’re doing. Any chance you would want to look into a Panatomic-X film simulation… I use an XT-4 and X-T5. Just checking.

    • Ritchie Roesch · February 17

      That would be interesting. Super fine grain. It wasn’t necessarily a contrasty film, but it had a very small dynamic range (for B&W negative film), if I remember correctly. I appreciate the suggestion!

  50. Walter · February 19

    OK Ritchie,
    You outdid yourself with this Emulsion ’86 recipe… outstanding!!.. It’s in my X-T5 and it’s staying there until something better comes along… I thought Kodachrome 64 was the thing, and it’s great but this one is awesome. Thank you very much.

    • Ritchie Roesch · February 20

      Awesome! I’m so happy to hear it!!! 😀 😀 😀
