Fujifilm simulation film recipe for a flat tone matte look like Kodak 35mm prints
This film recipe began life as an attempt to match a look I had seen with 35mm film photos taken on Kodak film. I had really liked the low contrast matte look, and wanted to be able to shoot with something similar on my Fujifilm camera.
Whilst this recipe does capture the flat look and colour tones I had seen, it was very specific to a single set of samples I had seen. So, rather than name it after the Kodak film stock, I decided to tweak it some more and embrace the flat matte look.
What we have then, is a general Kodak film-like look, reminiscent of some 35mm photography, with a muted tone and soft, matte like feel.
The base simulation is Classic Chrome, with a color chrome effect and small shift from the shade/cloudy colour balance. Shadows and highlights are both compressed to the -2 setting.
Like all the film recipes on this site, it was designed for recent X-Trans IV cameras, but with the exception of color chrome blue, this recipe is widely compatible with easy adaptation for older cameras too.

Thanks, nice one, very analogish as for me. I’ll try it as soon as the sun comes out.
