    You have obviously done a lot of trial and error to arrive at these settings, so thank you for being so unselfish with your “secret recipes”.

    I am also a shooter that prefers to shoot and not edit, and Fujifilm cameras allow me to be very productive with the customizable film simulations.

    I will be trying out your Kodachrome formula for sure…. I have thousands of yellow boxes in my closet from decades of shooting that very emulsion. Again, thanks.

      Take a look at the film simulation recipes by Fuji X Weekly’s Ritchie Roesch.

        I have a question about WB. I found on my XT3 value R without “+”. My be I’m wrong?

      I think I recognize Phnom Penh in those shots? I have a X-T20 on the way, will give these a try.

    So I know this blog is called FujiFeels but that doesn’t mean I want to disregard any people who shoot other brands.

    It’s actually called Fuji X Passion.

    I see your point, but actually editing is a big part of photography, for better or worse. That’s why the classic Ansel Adams books are three volumes: The Camera, The Negative, The Print. With digital editing may be more important whether you are letting Fujifilm’s algorithms produce pleasing jpegs in camera or if you shoot raw and edit in Lightroom. It’s still editing and still a hugely important part of the photographic process. Nice images, cheers.

      Perhaps because of the proliferation of smartphones and “film filters,” people are entering “big camera” photography with the expectation of “no editing”. But even the best smartphone photographers, edit.

    Thanks for publishing this and attempting to emulate Kodachrome. I shot Kodachrome for many years and have yet to see anyone replicate it with digital so looking forward to trying this. The problem is the film held up so well in almost any lighting…sort of had a “built in Auto WB” and digital seems to render differently as the light changes, One of things you’ll notice is the Nat Geo pros images look slightly underexposed and more contrasty if you really study a lot of them. Consumers tended to overexpose it as the simple cameras were designed for print film and its ability to handle several stops of overexposure. K wasn’t very forgiving with overexposure…I’ll play around with it.

    do you have other jpeg film simulations/custom settings for older fujifilm cameras like xt1? that would be great

    For your black and white preset, do you overexposed or under?

    Thank you

    LMAO….this was posted Feb 28 2020
    I don’t know where to begin. Ok…I’ll start with this. After shooting film simulations with my Fuji XT1, I realized…what the hell, I’ll just keep shooting film! Does anyone see the irony here? We’ve come all this way just to return back to film? I mean come on, that’s just a bit funny. Don’t get me wrong…I use both media, but for my professional work, the really excellent quality refined work, I shoot in medium or large format film. On occasion I will do some digital for some agencies, but I really do like the feel and look of film and so do the clients. I do, however, need to explore more in-depth learning of digital PP. I just thought this was rather ironic though. Considering how we’ve ‘come so far’ with the newest ‘what-have-you’ digital age. Just looking back is all.

      Yeah but some may want the film look with the convenience of digital.

        there is no film look when you shoot digital. I am really puzzled that people claiming this. Maybe they never shot film or think, a little grain make it a film look. Apples and Oranges. Just embrace what you like, but do not mix up things.

    Any chance you have the first recipe that’s to emulate Kodak Gold 200 for a newer camera like the X-S10? Mainly just want to know for grain effect, should it be ‘weak – small’, or ‘weak – large’? And what ‘Colour Chrome FX Blue’ should be set to: weak, strong, or off?

    I would love to use your recipe, so any help is much appreciated.
