Fujicolor Superia film recipe for X-Trans IV Fujifilm cameras
I come up with the best names, right?! Here’s Mother Superia, a Classic Negative film silmulation recipe with a Fujicolor Superia style in a soft and usable recipe for shooting anytime.
I’ve been trying to find a suitable recipe to pair up with this name for a while, and after three iterations of test recipes based on Fujicolor Superia styles, I’ve settled on this one. By using Classic Negative, there is a retro film edge to it, and greens are slightly blue toned. A warm color shift has tamed this effect, and as a result, reds and oranges now look great as well.
It’s not an accurate match to Fujicolor Superia film of course, although it does share a similar aesthetic. I’ve added links to some more Superia style recipes at the bottom of this post.
