Cracking the Classic Negative look
Hardly any other company puts that much effort in creating really beautiful and useful color profiles like Fujifilm.
Fujifilm calls them “film simulations”: inspired by the look of old film stock, they try to bring some of that magic into the digital era.
In fact, Minami-San, the Fujifilm employee responsible for colors back in the film days, is still today working at Fujifilm and in charge of the digital film simulation development. You can see his story here.
One more nice thing: Fujifilm film simulation can be fine tuned ad libitum:

And now we come to the Fujifilm X-Pro3.
- X-Pro3 offers more in camera editing options than any other Fuji camera
- X-Pro3 offers a new film simulation called Classic Negative (inspired by Superia)
But some can’t manage their impatience, and tried to emulate the Classic Negative film simulation look, as it’s the case of Jean-Pascal Remon.
How to get the Fuji Classic Negative Look to your X-Pro2/X-T2
And save yourself to buy a new camera.
From what I’ve seen, the new Fuji Classic Negative film simulation is generous on the blue and green level, while remaining somewhat warm and keeping a low contrast.
Here is how to achieve this look.
Fujifilm has just published their Classic Negative Film Simulation development story. You can read it all down below.
We remind you that FujiRumors already told you Fujifilm will update these older Fujifilm cameras with Classic Negative film simulation, too. Also, already now, Capture One Pro 12 offers Classic Negative film simulation profile.
The X-Pro3 Sub LCD
Here is episode 1 of Fujifilm’s X-Pro3 development story. It’s all about the sub-LCD and you can read it all down below.

Despite the crazy X-H1 rebate and the big X-T3 savings, the Fujifilm X-Pro3 stood its ground, and, at least here on FujiRumors, enjoyed a good start. But sure, once the launch-frenzy settles down, the X-T3 will claim its top spot again.
Top Fujinon X Lenses
Top Fujifilm GFX Gear
Turns out FR-readers prefer either very fast lenses (GF110/2) or the flexibility of zooms.
Top X Mount Third Party Lenses/Adapters
- Mitakon 35mm f0.95
- Viltrox 85mm f/1.8
- Fringer Autofocus Lens Adapter for Canon EF Lens to Fuji X-Mount Camera
The fire-sale on the Mitakon 35/0.95 pushed the lens back on top. The Viltrox 85/1.8 remains stable in the list.
Capture One Pro 12 is on an unstoppable victory parade, being by a very (!!!) large margin your top choice when it comes to RAW editing software. Nothing comes close it, even though Luminar 4 is on a worthy second place (but still worlds away from Capture One Pro).
As I told you, I myself left Adobe forever, to go all in with Capture One Pro 12.
