The Power of Fujifilm Colors: See Pure Fuji Colors in Action at our New Fujifilm Film Simulations Group

Let’s start with a curiosity:

The same guy at Fujifilm, who crafted the original films like Velvia, is still in charge of developing new film simulations. Yep, he is responsible for Fujifilm’s color science since 50 years now! We reported about Minami-San here. A life devoted to colors.

A devotion, that translates into those lovely film simulations, Fujifilm X and GFX shooters usually appreciate a lot.

Personally, I am at a point, where film simulation are one of the reasons, I would not leave the Fuji system anymore. I mean, it’s nice to know I come home from a 2 weeks holiday with many images, and that those lovely film simulations will save me lots of editing time because they give me great results out of the box.

And then I thought…

Many of you reading this blog, maybe don’t own a Fujifilm camera, maybe you just think to get one, and maybe you wonder what’s all the buzz around these “film simulations”.

Well, in order to show you this, I decided to launch e new facebook group, dedicated to Fujifilm film simulation: Fujifilm Film Simulations Facebook Group.

In this group, images can be edited in all their parts (sharpening, shadow/highlight recovery etc), except for colors. The colors must come purely out of the Fujifilm camera (or be applied in post in Capture One / Lightroom)

So, if you are curious to see the Fujifilm film simulations in action, or if you want to share your own images and display the power of Fuji colors, then feel free to join here.

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:

  • click here – This Guy Fine Tuned his Fujifilm Film Simulation Settings Inspired by the Work of Great Film Photographers. See “Chrome Eggleston” & More

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
