Kodak Ektar film recipe with Classic Chrome

Fujifilm simulation Kodak Ektar film recipe for X-Trans IV cameras

We’re almost spoiled for choice as far as Kodak Ektar film recipes are concerned. There are at least three that I have seen, which of course, all produce different results.

For my tastes, each of these had something I liked, but share a +4 colour setting, which I personally find too strong, and outside my preference for softer tones. So, another Kodak film recipe is born, which is something of a blend of the above, but a little less saturated. It will perhaps suit any of you that prefer a less saturated style, but still with a nod to Ektar photos of the past.
