Q2 Monochrom film simulation (X-trans IV)

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 colour profiles presets that you can further tweak as of your liking. So, because one doesn’t need too much of an excuse I started to experiment with some new film settings with my X-Pro3 with some b&w recipe that would please my eye.

Shooting black and white for one year

What did I learn ?

In my last article I talked about the different film simulations in Fuji cameras and how beautiful their colour renditions are. Personally, it turns out that my own preference in the last year or so has been shooting everything in b&w and I’d like to explain a little about the reasons I’ve chosen to do so.
