Welcome to the new X-Trans IV Film Simulation section. These film simulations are for use on Fujifilm cameras such as the X-T3, X-T4 and X100V, although you may get similar results using older Fujifilm camera models.
We currently have 6 X-Trans IV film simulations, but we believe quality is better than quantity, so please try them out and enjoy!
Colour Film Simulations
MGA Fred Herzog Kodachrome (V1 – Daily Use)
A take on Fred Herzog’s Kodachrome. Version 1 is for daily use.
MGA Fred Herzog Kodachrome (V2 – Authentic Deep Shadows)
Version 2 of Fred Herzog’s Kodachrome has much deeper shadows like original Kodachrome, plus a slight WB shift and more grain.
MGA Portra 400
A close replica of Portra 400, built from the ground up for a phenomenal look very much like the original.
MGA Eterna XTra
Eterna is new to me, I don’t know what to make of it at the moment so I am just experimenting. Eterna XTra is Eterna, only with a little extra kick to it. I’m sure someone might find it useful at some point!
This is my only example of this at the moment, but more coming soon.
Push/Pull Process: +2/3, Dynamic Range DR400, Film Simulation ETERMA, Grain Effect Weak, WB AUTO WB Shift R0 B0, Highlight Tone -2, Shadow Tone -2, Color +1, Sharpness +4, Noise Reduction 0
Monochrome Film Simulations
MGA Vintage Mono
This is an almost Sepia looking monochrome look, based on Acros. Vintage Mono is a particularly beautiful looking mono simulation. Examples can be found here.
Push/Pull Process: +2/3, Dynamic Range DR100, Film Simulation Acros+R, Grain Effect Off, WB Auto, WB Shift R0 B0, Highlight Tone -2, Shadow Tone –2, Color –, Sharpness –4, Noise Reduction –4
MGA Leica Q2 Monochrom Cool
Based on Leica’s new Monochrom camera which offers so colour shift to it’s monochrome output. Examples can be found here.
Push/Pull Process: +2/3, Dynamic Range D400-, Film Simulation Monochrome+G Grain Effect Off, WB Auto, WB Shift R6 B-7, Highlight Tone +1, Shadow Tone +3, Color –, Sharpness +4, Noise Reduction 0
