Eterna based film simulation recipe for a retro look with Fujifilm cameras
There are quite a variety of nostalgic film recipes on this site, with different takes on what a ‘vintage look’ is. Almost all of them do share a warm colour balance, sometimes slight, but often quite strong. This recipe has a balance shift on the very warm side, but with Eterna as a base, the result is a distinctly retro looking tone.
As well as this retro colour shift, there is light grain, boosted shadows and highlights and softness from a negative sharpness and negative clarity setting. The end result is noticably different to Eterna Nostalgia, a similarly themed Eterna recipe, but both of them have a nostalgic vibe of different types.
