By shooting straight out of the camera, you will know how to shoot in different situations and lighting. You will be able to learn to operate the camera by adjusting your camera settings to match the current environment you’re shooting in such as controlling the exposure, shutter speed or ISO.

Other than that, you don’t have to edit your photos which save you a lot of editing time so you can share the photos straight away with friends and family.

It all depends on what you want to achieve when you shoot photos with your Fujifilm recipes. Check out some of the best film simulations that are popularly used by Fuji shooters around the world.

Many Fujifilm cameras, particularly those from the X series, feature film simulation modes that emulate the appearance of traditional film stocks. This function is celebrated for its ability to deliver unique, aesthetic qualities directly from the camera, reducing the need for extensive post-processing. Here are the list of Fujifilm cameras can use recipes:

Fujifilm cameras with the X-Trans IV sensor can use the custom recipes such as the X-T4, X-S10, X-E4, X-100V, X-T30 II, X-Pro3.

Most of the film simulation recipes are intended to be used on older Fujifilm camera models X-Trans III and X-Trans IV, as well as new sensors X-T5X-H2, and X-H2S, the X100VI, and the latest Fujifilm X-T50.

In case you can’t find the setting such as the Color Chrome Effect, Clarity etc, on your camera, you can ignore it.

Yes, you can use the custom film simulation settings for other X-Trans sensors as long as the camera have the base film simulation such as Acros, Classic Negative and so on.

Certain setting such as the Clarity is not available in older X-Trans cameras. You can still changes the Highlights, Colors, Shadow & most important, the White Balance Shift.

Some settings might not be available and will yield different results. Custom film recipe is created to simulate the vintage film color and might not be accurate to the real film.

Yes! Definitely can. This technique has been existed since film photography and using a diffusion filter when shooting portraits will get the best results to soften the skin tone and helps remove blemishes. The Downtown Bloom recipe is best used with a diffusion filter to create the glow effect.

Using the filter will also create a certain vintage and dreamy cinematic film-like still images that many creative shooters uses to create artsy photos. You can learn more about diffusion filters, even better if you have vintage lenses or modern sharp lenses.

Yes, you can use the custom Fujifilm recipes and shoot with any vintage lenses. Make sure that the lens glasses is clear. Most vintage lens will turned yellowish color after some period of time and this can affect the color of the still images. You can find out how to remove the yellowish tint from vintage lens via Youtube.

By using a vintage lens with the film recipes, you can create certain artistic film-like mood that you can never imagine.

The use of base film simulations on Fujifilm X-Series cameras is more than enough if you are not creating any custom settings.

Having able to create more Fujifilm recipes can be fun as many Fuji X shooters out there are trying to create and explore more vintage film color science options such as the Kodak Portra 400, Kodachrome 64, Ilford HP5 Plus, CineStill 800T and so on.

Yes, of course! Why not? All the recipes will work on the Fujifilm X-100VI, X-T50, X-T5, X-S20, X-H2 & X-H2S. We have came across some test by X-H2 users and it works on the X-Trans 5 sensor. Most of the recipes are fine-tuned using the White Balance Shift or Kelvin temperature, so the tone will be same.

If you are looking for the Fujifilm X-T5 film recipes, feel free to try experiment it on the X-T5. It will be different but still usable and might look even better!
