Classic chrome film simulation recipe for X-Trans IV based on Kodak 35mm film
Here’s a Classic Chrome film simulation recipe that mimics a 35mm film from Kodak. The film in question is Kodak Pro Image 100, which was released into a spot somewhere between Kodak’s Portra and Gold films, sitting in the professionsal film range, but at an everyday price. It’s something of a mid-position film with 35mm qualities that I found I could mimic with Classic Chrome.
The Kodak Pro Image film recipe, keeps the colour balance close to neutral, and relies on the Color Chrome effects to deliver film like character that I observed when reviewing samples of the Pro Image 100 film stock.
Because this recipe uses Color Chrome Blue and one step of Clarity, it does mean it is designed for the later X-Trans IV cameras, although you may be able to get similar results on other models by using just the settings that your camera supports.

Thanks so much for sharing these. Unfortunately, Imageshack may have changed something because I can’t get the images to save to include them in the site gallery 😞
Hello! May I ask what ISO range does classic chrome recipes use? Thanks!
Thanks for the question. I allow the photographer to choose ISO based on the sort of images they are taking.
