Fuji

Welcome to the Fuji Film Simulations resource centre, where I share with you my film simulations for Fujifilm X-T cameras. Although these were designed using an X-Trans III sensor, they will work with all versions of X-Trans sensors with little or no tweaking. My aim is two-fold, to create my own unique film simulations and to emulate old film stock as closely as I can. In these settings there is the option to add grain (as you will know as a Fuji user), I don’t usually tend to use grain at all, although if needed for effect I will add it. Please play with this option yourself to see if it is suitable for you to use. We currently have 16 unique film simulations!

I hope that you all find these film simulations useful. They have all been tested in camera (Fujifilm X-T20) and in Fujifilm X Raw Studio. You may need to change the settings slightly in a different camera with different X-Trans sensor.

  1. Gonna try MGA Kodak ColorPlus 200 on my trip to Italy tomorrow 🙂 thank you for sharing those, and please share more, they look great! So good work you’ve done!!

    1. The 18-55mm is a great lens, and as much as I endorse prime lenses, I always think you should have a zoom lens as your first lens to make sure you have all angles covered. Depending on your photography I would suggest a 23mm F/1.4 or 33/35mm F/1.4. I prefer 23mm as it’s equivalent focal length is that of a 35mm full frame, which I just find perfect for everyday use. Thank you for enjoying the site, loads more to come!

    1. I’ve gone with the sliding comparisons as that’s what people have asked for and you can see how it affects the basic simulation it’s based on, but I am going to be separating the mono from the colour, so this will be a possibility. Thanks!

      1. The sliding is great. But instead of just pictures of a flower also a city scene or landscape would be nice.
        Nevertheless I will try them out. Also followed you on Instagram. Great work

      2. Yes, my test pictures are usually a combination of those things. Really days yet but I’m site update will introduce your suggestions! Thanks.
