Hi all, does anyone have a recipe for adjusting one of the B&W film modes/filters that would roughly approximate the look of Kodak Tri-X Pan 400?

To all TAPATALK users

As a form of courtesy towards your fellow users of this forum, PLEASE remove the obnoxious tapatalk signature, it adds nothing to anyone’s contribution and it is only a sneaky way used by tapatalk to push their product by polluting each forum participant with promoting their products with unpaid advertising for their software and the brand of your phone. Removing it is easy and it is an act of courtesy that shows respect for all those whom are annoyed by this pointless feature. This is not a personal attack to you, the annoyance is caused by tapatalk and the phone or tablet brands, they are getting all the exposure and you gain nothing by this.

Vsco comes pretty close too, if you're using lightroom.

Buy Nik is free, so try that first.

Other free option is Rawtherapee or GIMP with g'mic:



In case you meant in-camera; I would be interested to know as well.

You can't do it in-camera. Use one of the suggested plug ins :)

If you use Exposure X3 from Alien Software I am sure you will also find TRI-X preset.
