RAW Power 3.0 Adds Fujifilm Film Simulations LUT

For those, who missed our original RAW Power article of February 2017 here, the RAW Power app brings Aperture style interface and functions to Mac Photos.

A few days ago, Nik Bhatt, former Aperture developer at Apple, has released RAW Power ver. 3.0. Down below the full list of new features and improvements.

Particulary relevant for Fujifilm users:

  • LUTs with Fujifilm Simulations included (and you can import your own)

Fellow FR-reader Fleckintosh did try it out already, and so far it seems to work well.

Remember that back in 2018, Nik also introduced the Lightroom plug-in for RAW Power, which allows you to access RAW Power directly from the Lighroom interface and do non-destructive editing.

See the full list of supported Fujifilm cameras here (no compressed RAW support, only uncompressed).

This PDF Lists 80 Fujifilm Film Simulation Custom Profiles You Can Try out Yourself

Here on FujiRumors we have shared quite a few articles about people, sharing their customized Fujifilm film simulation profiles.

From Peter Evans, who was inspired by the masters of the past and present, and fine tuned his film simulations to emulate the look of their images (we reported here), to Ritchie Roesch, who tried to recreate the look of old film stock by adjusting the settings of various film simulations (we reported here).

Then there are the receipts shared by renown photographers, for example Kevin Mullins (we reported here).

And of course there are lots of other Fujifilm X shooters, who played around with the film simulation, trying to achieve a particular look.

In fact, there are so many, that we might have lost a bit the overview.

But luckily over at our fantastic Fujifilm X-Pro group, fellow X shooter David collected 80 film simulation receipts and shared them all in a very practical PDF.

It is an amazing and surely very time consuming effort, that I would like to share with everybody, and not only with the members of the closed X-Pro group. So here is the link to David’s public facebook post and for the direct link to Google Docs click here.

David is still working on the document, so check back regularly for the latest updates.

Great job, David – see his personal facebook pageinstagram page

X-LR v.2.0 Released: Plug-in that Automatically Applies Fujifilm Film Simulations in Lightroom

We reported first about X-LR back in March 2017 here.

X-LR is a Lightroom plug-in that reads Fujifilm’s Film Simulation from your RAW file and automatically applies corresponding profile when you import your images to Lightroom.

Now X-LR is receiving an update.

You can find a version 2.0 of the X-LR plugin for Lightroom at lightroomsolutions here.

One big issue it fixed is that Adobe quietly introduced new film simulation profiles with a v2 suffix for the X-T3 and now the X-T30. This release addresses that change and supports any new Fuji cameras for which Adobe introduce v2 profiles.

It has other improvements too:

  • Supports Adobe’s v2 profiles for X-T3 and X-T30 cameras
  • Support for X-H1 Eterna film simulation
  • Extracts maker notes as custom fields
  • Can run a preset if the camera detected faces
  • Read ratings and film simulations from JPEG-only shots
  • Expert Mode
    • Incremental Lightroom slider values
    • Ranges of values – eg FacesDetected tag greater than 1 can apply a portrait preset
  • Better logging

How to Fine Tune Your Fujifilm Film Simulation to Get the Ultimate Vintage Look

Let’s Go Vintage

As lovely as Fujifilm’s film simulations come out of the box, there is always a way, to fine tune them to taste, simply by changing some settings quickly in the camera.

For example, so did Pete:

Today I would like to share the film simulation receipts of FR-reader Ritchie Roesch, which I stumbled upon in the comments to this article here.

I will share only one here on FujiRumors. For the rest, check out the links I will provide below:

NOTE: Some profiles require newer Fujifilm cameras that have the Color Chrome effect or certain film simulations not available in older cameras

Let’s Talk Film Simulations: Are they Really Good only For JPEG Shooters? Vote Your Favorite Film Simulation!

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 hereAn Introduction to Fujifilm’s Film Simulation Modes
  • 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 – CLASSIC CHROME or “The Art of Omission!”
  • click here – An Ode To ACROS: “A Game Changer, My Favorite Film Simulation by far!” :: And about the Best ACROS (or B&W) Settings!
  • click here – VELVIA. The world of film simulation (link inside mixed zone)
  • 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.
