Reala Ace Film Recipe For Fujifilm X-Trans IV – Street Edition

A Japanese film simulation recipe with vibrant tonality, perfectly suited for a variety of scenes for the 4th generation Fujifilm Cameras

Introducing the latest addition to Fujifilm recipes lineup – Reala Ace film recipe. Originally tailored for the Fujifilm GFX100 II and X100VI, this 20th film simulation meticulously blends faithful color reproduction with a distinctive hard tonality, ensuring its versatility across various subjects and shooting scenarios. Drawing inspiration from the beloved Fujicolor Superia Reala 100, the REALA ACE film simulation has quickly become a favorite among Fujifilm enthusiasts.

If you find yourself still using a 4th generation Fujifilm camera, fear not. The Reala Ace film simulation offers a compelling recipe to replicate the sought-after aesthetic. It provides a bridge between the nostalgia of classic film and the convenience of digital photography.

About The Reala Ace Film Recipe

By using the Classic Negative film simulation as a base, Reala Ace is tweaked to imitate the Reala Ace film stock. This lets older Fujifilm cameras enjoy the unique tones of this film recipe. It’s worth noting that the original REALA ACE film simulation on the GFX100 II and Fujifilm X100VI was designed to complement the capabilities of larger sensors found in newer Fujifilm models. So, if you’re rocking an older Fujifilm camera, exploring this Reala Ace film recipe might be an excellent starting point to capture the essence of this innovative film simulation. Dive into the world of nuanced color and bold tonality with Reala Ace film recipe on your trusted Fujifilm gear.

After conducting thorough research and analyzing the Fujicolor Reala Ace 100 film stock sample photos on Lomography, I observed subtle differences resulting from changing light conditions, but the tonality has been fine-tuned to suit a broad range of scenes. Interestingly, I’ve developed a comparable recipe, the papurudorimu recipe, which produces a tone remarkably similar to the observed results. What stands out to me in this Reala Ace film recipe is the resemblance in certain tones to the actual film stock.

Now, turning our attention to the Reala Ace film recipe tailored for the Fujifilm X-Trans IV, there’s a deliberate adjustment in the white balance shift, creating a more subdued and nuanced effect. This modification aims to enhance the overall visual experience, offering a unique tonal balance that complements the characteristics of the X-Trans IV sensor.

Please note that when using the Reala Ace film recipe, the tonality may appear slightly muted due to the Highlight & Shadow adjusted to -0.5. However, this also means that the recipe is versatile and can perform well under various lighting conditions, making it a great option for any photographer.

Reala Ace Film Recipe: Great For All Scenes

The Reala Ace film recipe is the ultimate solution for all your photography needs if you are looking to shoot SOOC JPEG. Whether you’re capturing lively street scenes, stunning portraits, or breathtaking landscapes, this recipe has got you covered. Its ease of use makes shooting a breeze, while its high-quality output ensures that your images stand out from the rest.

It is imperative to shoot under ideal lighting conditions. The ideal conditions are most prevalent during the daytime when the sun illuminates the foreground while casting shadows on the background. This enhances and fully exploits the film recipe’s unique attributes. If you are unsatisfied with the REALA ACE film simulation on your Fujifilm cameras, you might want to experiment with custom settings. Give it a try and see if it meets your preferences.

Debates among the street photography community page on Facebook argue that when it comes to street photography, the usage of filters or presets can compromise the authenticity and rawness of the captured moment. However, I do not adhere to any strict rules or limitations when it comes to my approach to street photography. As long as it’s not overly tweaked or adjusted till it looks weird, it’s fine. So have fun and enjoy shooting, peeps!

    Thanks for this. Nice trade off. Unfortunately it’s bit of a disappointment that Fuji doesn’t give the reala ace for not too old body like xt4

    Wait i think you can only go in whole digit numbers for the Color setting. No 0.5 increments.
