Ever since the Classic Negative film simulation was released and I got my X-Pro3 I’ve been using it and trying hard to love it. I must say that my most used and loved film simulation, aside the black & white ones, has been Classic Chrome. Classic Negative is interesting in a way that it gives […]
NOTE: There was an early version of this recipe, which I have dramatically altered since then, as it was far from accurate. This new one should be more like the “real” thing. The great thing about the Fujifilm cameras is their what so called film simulations, which are, as you may know, some sort of […]
As with other pseudo reviews in this site I won’t delve in all the technicalities of this camera. My aim here is to share my shooting experience and hopefully to give you a better idea of what you can expect if you are planning to buy this quite expensive piece of gear. As it stands […]
