Firstly a huge thank you to Fujifilm for another epic firmware update! Ver 3.00
Among many amazing new features we received a new Film Simulation called “Classic Chrome” which is what i would describe as quite a saturated tone across the range of colors. I have never read so many threads online or seen so much pre-hype about a film simulation before so i couldn’t wait to check it out.
While i love almost all the current film simulations, especially Provia, Velvia, & Astia i am not 100% convinced that classic chrome is totally my style. In my early photography years the saturation bar was my go too slider where i would apply ~20% to many photos & my initial feel is that this almost takes me back to a style of editing that i have moved from.
The best thing is the Fuji Simulations are they are well executed, tasteful & subtle not like the Instagram haze we are all too well exposed too on social media.
Let me know what you think, i feel that this series looks pretty nice in the classic chrome film simulation at least!
These are Jpeg’s straight out of camera, with a slight edit of the shadows,highlights & contrast. All taken using the xf18-55 lens.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
