Fujifilm GFX Recipe on my Fuji GFX50SII camera
Something I’ve played with on my Fuji XT3 is putting in different “recipes” for my jpeg images. I like to give the JPEGs a unique look straight out of camera (SOOC). I’ve done more moody shots, bright, warmer tones…the combinations are endless really. Many recipes say they look like film, and they come close. The thing I love the most is not having to edit RAW files if the JPEGs look good enough. I usually shoot both RAW and JPEG because you can edit a lot more details in RAW.
I shot these GFX photos in a 1:1 square format, so it would look more like a medium format film camera. The recipe I tried was for the XT4 but I put it in my Fuji GFX 50sii. Here are my settings for the JPEG’s. Also I usually shoot manually for everything, no exposure compensation on these. I used the kit lens, because it’s about the only lens I can afford for this thing. It’s good for landscapes I think. I have the 80mm for portraits and it’s a heavy lens. So for hiking I like the zoom lens on this thing (35-70mm.) The auto focus is fine, not super fast. I heard another photographer say to only manual focus on the GFX, but I don’t. I even have people walking in the shots and they are in focus. The focus isn’t as fast as the Fuji XT5 but it’s workable in my opinion.
Here’s the recipe I saved in camera:
Image size L 1:1
Image quality N+Raw
Film simulation: Classic Negative
Grain : Strong, Large
Color Chrome effect : strong
Color Chromed FX Blue :weak
Smooth skin: weak
Dynamic Range : DR 100
White Balance: K, 6700, Red: -3. Blue: -1
High ISO NR 0
I honestly can’t find which recipe it was that I tweaked. I love the recipes on Fuji Weekly.com and I'm not sure which of the 250 it was, but it's inspired by someone else. Another favorite recipe is on my Fuji XT5: Reggie's Portra. It's great for portraits.
Here are some JPEG’s from my St. George, Utah trip last November. I like the skin tones on the FUJI also. These are imperfect, unedited, SOOC images from a morning hike. Let me know what you think!
I'd love to hear from you
