Claunch 72, Monotone Hipstamagic

Deep toned monochrome Fujifilm film recipe with a brown colour shift

If you’ve every experiemented with the Hipstamatic app, you may have come across the characterful mono setting called Claunch72. It has a tinted mono look, with dark border and vignetting.

One of my favourite IG follows is Woody95 who makes excellent use of this setting in his Hipstamatic photography in Scotland.

Personally, I love the style and wanted to try and capture the essence of it in a film recipe. Using an X-Trans IV camera makes this possible with colour tone applied to a mono image.

My interpretation of this look includes a colour shift that is perhaps a little less green than the Hipstamatic original, and of course, is missing the border and vignetting. However, as I’ve used this film recipe more and more, I’ve come to really enjoy its toned mono style.
