CN24 for a Crisp Classic Negative Look

Fujiflim film simulation recipe with Classic Negative for X-Trans IV cameras

Classic Negative 24 or CN24 is a general use option for shooting on Fujifilm X-series with the Classic Negative film simulation. It uses a white balance adjustment of +2, -4, which gives it the 24 in the name.

I’m a big fan of Classic Negative and the amazing tones it produces. It’s one of the sims that led me to buy my Fujifilm X-S10 and I love shooting with it. With CN24, I wanted to add to the everyday usability of Classic Negative with the addition of a creamy tone, and slightly less blue in the greens.
