Film simulation recipes
Nostalgic 70’s film simulation (X-trans IV)
With the release of the new X-H2S and X-H2 models also came the Nostalgic Negative film simulation to the X system for the first time. Now the latest Xt-5 also comes with it. This is my own attempt to emulate the Nostalgic Negative simulation.
