Natura Classic Film – Fuji X-Trans IV Film Simulation Recipe

It took me a while as I was brainstorming for my next Fujifilm X-Trans IV film simulation recipes for travel, and I stumbled upon the Natura 1600 film stock. Based on some further research on the internet about the high-speed Fujifilm color film stock, if you shoot with the Classic Negative, you will get the Fuji Superia 1600 color tone.

The Natura Classic is a replica film color to the Fujifilm Natura 1600 and Fuji Superia 1600 35mm film stock which has been discontinued. This recipe is suitable for the newer Fujifilm X-Trans IV sensor cameras including the Fujifilm X-T4, X-S10, X-T30 II, X-E4, and X-Pro3.

What Is All About Natura Classic Film Recipe?

Known as one of my best Fujifilm recipes for streets, portraits, and travel, the Natura Classic film recipe is the best to shoot in the daylight, and depending on the lighting, it can be used for night photography too. Most of the images below are shot with the Fujinon XF35mm F2. Natura Classic is a street and travel film simulation recipe, therefore it is of great use for people and sightseeing while traveling.

It is recommended to photograph slightly overexposed to achieve a matte finish that is not too noticeable. When shot with this film formula, this version has a faint green hue. All sample photos below are shot as SOOC JPEGs with no post-processing. The Natura Classic, also known as the Natura 1600 film recipe is quite similar to the Fujicolor C200 Expired or the Fujicolor Superia X-TRA 400 but I have fine-tuned some of the settings. The slightly matte look on the shadow or dark areas actually can be achieved with simple lens accessories such as the diffusion filter but you can still use it without one.

Different tones will be produced depending on the lighting circumstances and best shot with greenery. There are many versions on the internet including Fujixweekly, and Fujifilm Recipes, to choose from but feel free to try this version and you might love it!

Other than shooting color film simulation recipes, how about trying out the ‘One for the Road‘, a black & white Fuji recipe? Seems like black & white photography is currently becoming popular recently in my country.

Happy shooting!

  1. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    I was looking for something similar to Pro 400H when I stumbled on this post. I added Natura Classic to my X100V and X-Pro3. I just started experimenting with it yesterday, but I have found it to work in bright sunlight, mixed natural light and fluorescent, and under LED lighting. I may shoot with this for the rest of the Summer, it’s that good!

    I am shooting with a 1/4 black pro mist (probably will swap out with the 1/8) and the XF 18 mm f2. The only changes I made to the recipe was -1 clarity and 0 grain. I really like the grain your recipe calls for, but don’t want it baked in permanently.

    Thanks again, cheers!

    1. Hi Brandon,

      Thank you! I’m happy to hear that you like the recipe.

      Hope you get more nice photos shooting with this recipe 😀

      I too, will try your tweaks and see it looks like.
