One of facebook group I enjoy most lately is our fast growing Fujifilm film simulation group (8.6K members already!!).
What’s special about it?
Well, images shared in this group can be edited in all their parts (sharpening, shadow/highlight recovery etc), except for colors, which must come purely out of the Fujifilm camera (or the film simulation can applied in post in Capture One / Lightroom).
Navigating through the group shows that film simulations are not a marketing gimmik, but a powerful tool available to all Fujifilm X and GFX shooters.
And that Fujifilm takes colors seriously is also shown by the fact that the guy, who developed the original Velvia film, is now in charge of bringing the magic of film colors into Fuji’s digital cameras. We reported about Minami-San here. A life devoted to colors.
But here is the thing.
While Fujifilm currently offers many film simulations (and is always developing new ones), the Fujifilm X/GFX community often loves to fine-tune them to taste.
On the internet you can find all possible receipts. For example, here you can find 80+ film simulation receipts to download in form of PDF.
Now, many X shooters like to save the various film simulations receipts in their 7 available custom presets. But what if 7 is not enough, because the receipts you like to use regulary are more than that?
Well, an answer could be the “Fujifilm Film Simulation Recipe Cards” developed by Oleksii Prytuhin (instagram).
Print them in credit card size (as fellow FS-member Mick did here), put them in your wallet and keep them always with you. When needed, take them out, check the settings, adjust the camera settings and you are good to shoot again.
For now the receipts available in form of flash cards are still limited, but let’s hope Oleksii will slowly extend the number of cards available.
You can check out the Film simulation receipt cards at Fuji X Weekly here.
Of course, if any FR-reader would like to continue Oleskii’s work, feel free to do so, and to share with FujiRumors. I’d be happy to dedicate it another article here on FujiRumors.
Thanks to Kiattikool for sharing this information at our Film simulation group here, to Richie for writing this article and making the PDF available, and of course to Oleksii for the nice idea and the work.
