Fuji's Incredible Film Simulations

July 31, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

After waiting 4 months, I finally took delivery of the 18-135mm lens this past weekend. This lens will definitely be my go to lens based on the focal range, close focusing ability for close-up up work, weather sealed construction, and its incredible image stabilization. In the short time that I've had the X-T2, I've come to really like the film simulations that Fuji has built into their firmware. Fuji offers 9 different film simulations and in addition, color filter (red, green, and yellow) effects with Acros and monochrome film simulations. Not only am I able to preview the look of any film simulation in the electronic viewfinder, but I'm also able to bracket an image using three different film simulations. If bracketing, I press the shutter once and get three images based on what film simulations I have selected.

While traveling through the Atlanta airport earlier this month, I came across a section of exposed ceiling that caught my eye. Due to the lighting and monochrome subject matter, I set the X-T2 film simulation to Acros with a red filter and begin shooting. I was blown away with the results.
