Let’s Talk (and Vote) Film Simulations

Given the recent Fujifilm announcement of a new film simulation Classic Negative coming to Fujifilm X-Pro3, and the latest rumor that says older X-Processor 4 cameras will get it via firmware update, the Film Simulation talk is again en vogue here on FujiRumors.

Also the recent Canon vs Fujifilm colors shootout has raised the color science topic again.

In fact, film simulations are a much loved feature among the Fujifilm community, and we have written several articles about them in the past:

  • click here – Meet Minami-San, Fujifilm’s Color Guru Since 50 Years and Who is Now Bringing Fuji’s Color Science from Film to Digital

  • click here – X-Trans III :: All Film Simulations Improved :: See Conventional Velvia Vs. X-Pro2 Velvia!
  • click here – PRO NEG, ASTIA and PROVIA. The World of Film Simulation
  • click here – Fujifilm Rethink RAW :: JPEG is Your Friend and Fuji’s Film Simulations Rock
  • click here – This Guy Fine Tuned his Fujifilm Film Simulation Settings Inspired by the Work of Great Film Photographers. See “Chrome Eggleston” & More

Now, some say film simulations are only for JPEG shooters, but I don’t agree.

Many love to work with Fujifilm RAW files by first applying a film simulation profile in Lightroom or Capture One and then edit from there. I do it like this too, and it saves me a lot of time. Fujifilm gets the colors right for me, and I just fine tune the rest of the image (contrast, sharpening, etc).

And Classic Negative?

Well, the very first samples look promising for me, and I am curious to see if it can climb high in the favorite ranking of Fujifilm X Shooters.

The current most loved film simulations can be seen (and voted) down below.

Personally, I am in love with Classic Chrome. But there is one film simulation, that I kind of re-discovered this summer, and is now often replacing Provia and Velvia in my photography: Astia!

Astia sits kind of between Provia and Velvia, giving colors a bit more pop compared to Provia, but not as much punch as Velvia.

Astia replaces Velvia also in my landscape photography, whenever I have a person (mostly my wife) in my frame, as Astia gives me the best balance between punchy colors and good skin tones.

But there are film simulations for every taste, and I am happy to see Fujifilm committed to deliver more of them. Classic Negative looks awesome, and I look forward what the future brings :).

Down below you’ll also find a video of Dan Bailey, saying why you should use film simulations.

To our valued customers

Thank you very much for purchasing and using our products.

Apple has released the new OS (iOS13) for smartphones and tablets. We have confirmed the function of the application software for smartphone FUJIFILM Camera Remote with the iOS13 and found Wi-Fi connection between a camera and a smartphone doesn’t work well with some of the smartphones.

We are now considering a solution for this symptom and will inform you once we have determined it.

If you plan to upgrade to the iOS13, keep in mind that the symptom can occur until the solution is introduced.

Your understanding will be highly appreciated.

Nikon Z50: the Lucrative Sub $1,000 APS-C Market Gets a New Competitor – Z50 vs Fujifilm X-T30 vs Sony A6400 vs Canon EOS M6 II

Share

Nikon has launched the Nikon Z50.

Just like Sony (and unlike Canon and Fujifilm), Nikon decided to use the same mount for two different sensor size systems.

The Nikon Z50 is a direct competitor to the Fujifilm X-T30, a very successful camera for Fujifilm.

The lucrative sub $1,000 APS-C market is getting a new and strong competitor, and of course we customers all welcome that.
