Acros film simulation

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

When shooting fine RAW with simulation set to b/w options the RAW file is in full colour.

I want to be able to convert a RAW b/w image via Adobe Raw without converting from colour to greyscale first.

Am I missing something here? Am I stuck with just the jpeg in say Acros?

Regards, NeilC

It sounds like you are using Adobe products. So ... you might have some good results trying gradient mapping  (This technique also works in other photo editors.) Here are a couple of step by step tutorials:

ps The free Raw Convertor software FujiFilm gives you with the camera does have some decent conversion options as well.

Well, the raw is always in color no matter what.  However, if you use the FREE version of Capture one 12,   I own the full Pro version of C1 v12 and I can change the raw file into whatever I want from a drop down menu. It has all the Fuji profiles.

I second the Capture 1 with the pull down menu that has *all* the profiles.

It makes it easy to decide between Velvia slightly unsaturated, or Provia with some saturation.

Or, might just go Acros with a yellow filter.. life is good.

      Hello!
       
      Here is a completely reworked, refined Set of ICC Profiles for Capture One, made for X-T1. It matches the In-Camera Filmsimulations much better than the original Set, which I posted last October here. 
       
      Another Set, made for X-Pro2, Incl. ACROS ICC Profiles, is also included in this post. I renamed them to have an alternative Option for my X-T1. These ICC are slightly different, Blacks & Shadows & Colors are more decent. 
       
      Enjoy!

      Hello folks! 😊
      So far no one has been able to help on this...I have a new XT30 (updated) and a Macbook (which I just updated when this problem occurred but the update didn't help).  I have RAW & Fine set in the camera and PC Connection mode set at "USB RAW/Conv.".....and the MAC only "sees" the .jpg.  Not RAW.  😣
      Camera store and so far online don't seem to have answer to somehow get the RAW seen so I can work with it..  Anybody out there have any suggestions or experiences?

      Hello Everyone, 
      I just picked up an XT2 and this is my first Fuji camera, really excited about using it. I've been watching a lot of youtube videos and reading forum post to familiarize myself with the camera and its settings. I am very impressed by the film simulations but really confused on how to use them in conjunction with RAW files. I was under the impression that if I shoot RAW+JPEG(Fine/Norma) with a film simulation selected (e.g. Chrome). Simulation is applied to JPEG only and RAW file is pure raw without any processing that I can edit however I want in post processing. But I took the camera out for the first time and realized the film simulation is applied to both JPEG and RAW. Is there a way to shoot with film simulation applied to JPEG but get unprocessed RAW files from XT2? 
      Thanks for everyone's help in advance!

      I have a Lightroom subscription and have been ysing it for a while now, however the RAF didn’t seem very good, certainly no where as good as jpegs..then i tried to use enhance details and found almost no difference and in some cases a much smoother image as if it got compressed...i shifted to capture one pro 12 and that thing doesn’t even recognize any photos on my laptop when i try to import...can someone please help me, I’m feeling hopeless 🤕

      I'm a new X-T20 user . I found a most bookmarked thread in a forum suggesting picture profile settings inorder to gain rough RAW preview to facilitate ETTR.
      There was a reply saying this can be simply achieved by turning off the "picture preview effect" under display settings . But there was also a counter message saying it wouldn't work and it said to use your desired simulation (with settings if you want).  do a test (by increasing) and find out the safe +EV range you can recover.
      I usually use exposure preview off with highlight clipping alert in order achieve ETTR. But some time I find although clipping warning doesn't come in evf, in post things are blown out and they can't be recoverable. Now I use 1/3 under than clipping highlight warning with "pic effect preview" turned off. Still I'm not confident.
      Which method do you use to achieve ETTR?
      Can you tell me if you are using provia simulation in x-t20 how many stops are recoverable in post?
      If you tried picture preview effect off method along with high light clipping option like me to get EETR how it is working for you?
      Thanks in advance

    • They don't appear burned, but a but too shifted to the right. Perhaps is just a matter of taste. But as I say, most pictures, to just look 'normal', I have to compensate is by -1/3 or more typically -2/3.
    • Yes - provided you are using a version of the Adobe software which supports your camera. If you are using a subscription version of the Adobe software and keeping it updated then your camera should be supported.
    • Good morning friends! i have been browsing the internet but can’t seem to find a clear answer. Are Fujifilm camera profiles and film simulations now available for RAW files in Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Canera Raw please? I have been using this software for too many years to make a switch easily so I would be grateful for any feedback Thank you 
    • Hi! I am considering the Fuji XT30 or XT3. Some of the images I have taken with the camera are amazing in the detail that is captured! Just love it! However, I had some issues as shown in the 2 photos below. I had asked the store manager to set the camera for landscape so the shots are at a small aperture. In the first photo, I was leaning against a wall, focusing on the bush.  Any thoughts on why the bush is not in focus? It appears the focus is on the building beyond....(I
