I don’t get the chance to shoot while there is light outside very often because I am cooped up in an office all day long.
Recently I found a Fujifilm Simulation recipe that I really liked.
And this one was for the the X-Trans I processor but I supposed it would work for the X-Trans II processor in my X70.
- Film simulation: Astia
- Dynamic Range: DR200
- WB Shift: +4 Red, -5 Blue
- Highlights: +1
- Shadows: +1
- Color: -2
- Noise reduction: -2
- Sharpening: 0
- Exposure compensation: typically between +1/3 and +2/3
So I decided to hop onto my bicycle and head out with my daughter.
The intention was to shoot only in JPEG with this new simulation recipe I had found.
I must say that I really liked the tones I was getting. It was a nice mix of green and reds, but muted blues. And the fact that it was going straight to JPEG meant that I was getting nice smooth tones.
I did a crazy thing. I cycled about with the X70 in my right hand so that I could shoot while I moved about. It worked like a charm as the camera was so compact and light.
In summary, I really enjoyed using the new recipe on my X70. Looks like this will be my default custom setting for quite a while!
