Fujicolor Pro 400H Film Recipe (Street Version) For Fujifilm X-Trans IV Cameras

Mood: Japanese, Vintage, Blueish Cool

Japanese Color Tone for Fujifilm X-Trans IV Cameras

Honestly, the Fujicolor Pro 400H film recipe is one of the most complex Fujifilm recipes I have ever created. This was made based on the actual sample photos of discontinued 35mm Fujicolor Pro 400H film stock. I was happy to have the Fujicolor Pro 400H as the latest addition to my Fujifilm recipes which has the characteristic Japanese film-look colour tone. This Japanese film-like recipe is not created just by referring to Google image search but from the actual 120mm film photos like the images below. I like the blueish tone of this film and so I’ve decided to create based on this colour palette.
 
I find the blueish tone is great for street, travel and sightseeing. If you are into portraits, check out the portrait version of Fujicolor Pro 400H, which is fine-tuned for photographing people.

What Is Fujicolor Pro 400H Film Recipe All About?

This is one of the hardest and most complex ways during the creation of this film recipe. This film-like recipe is based on the Classic Negative and required certain lighting conditions to achieve the look. There are no right or wrong when creating a film recipe, because of the constant changing of lighting conditions, expired films, lens quality or different camera settings, the tone will certainly be changed as well too. If you are into film photography you will certainly know what I mean.

 Whenever you’re shooting with this Fujicolor Pro 400H film recipe make sure you have your compensation exposure set and expose your shot properly because this film recipe required you to overexpose one stop or more. I’m sure you don’t want to ruin your holiday photos just like that or forget to set to shoot JPEG+RAW (this happened to me for few times) but ended up shooting on SOOC JPEGs but in the end, you don’t like the results. But still, I do like SOOC JPEG, not much editing is needed.

The Shadow setting of this Fujicolor Pro 400H is set to +2, so you need to shoot overexpose to compensate according to your liking and to brighten your photo to get the tone to shine. If you like more contrast and deep blueish green, then you can shoot slightly overexposed. The Clarity is set to -2 to create a little dreamy look but it is better if you use the FX filters to create the dreamy effects if you don’t want to have slowness with the Clarity setting.

If you like Japanese film-look recipes, you can also check out the Fujifilm Superia X-TRA 400 or Natura Classic. Happy shooting with Fujicolor Pro 400H, hope you like this new film recipe.
