Comparing ETERNA to Other Fujifilm Film Simulations + ETERNA Profile for CaptureOne + What the F-Log Is ETERNA?


ETERNA Vs. Other Film Simulation

One of the questions X shooters have at the moment, is how the ETERNA compares to other film simulations.

Keith did a quick comparison on his blog here. He says:

what I see doesn’t surprise me coming to Eterna as it is a film simulation designed for videographers, aka – designed for further color grading and as such is characterized by subdued color presentations and rich shadow tones.

Also, as Dan said at our Fujifilm X-H1 group here, “Eterna is muted for a reason. In video, you want the eye’s attention focused on the action/actors not drawn to the entire frame’s vista.”

And in today’s Cinema5D interview, Fujifilm Manager Jun Watanabe-san said: “Current film simulations, even Pro Neg, are too brilliant and not suitable for long time viewing. Hence we developed ETERNA.”
