The Film Recipes App

The phone app for X-Trans IV film recipes on Apple and Android devices

I am working on an app that will bring the recipes from this site onto your phone for easy access on the go. This is a new project for me, having never made anything like it before. When it’s ready, I hope to provide it on the two main app stores.

It costs money for the various licenses and hosting to do this, so it’s my intention for the app to be available for a small fee. As a bonus for the payment, the Film Recipes app with contain a good number of exclusive app only recipes, as well as early release previews of the recipes coming soon to the site.

Here’s the list of recipes that are presently exclusive to app users, providing additional looks for their X-Trans IV and compatible cameras. Some will appear as full recipe pages on the site in the coming weeks, but a proportion will remain app exclusives for app subscribers.

Which cameras do these recipes work with?

Just a reminder that these recipes are fully compatible with recent X-Trans IV cameras, such as X-T4, X-S10, X-T30 II and X-E4. Many recipes are compatible with X-Pro3 and X100V (the recipes that don’t use Eterna Bleach Bypass). Everything will also work on new X-Trans V cameras, like the X-H2 or X-T5, although I don’t yet have any Nostalgic Negative recipes. If you have an older camera, you should be aware that you will need to adapt recipes to your camera, and many will not work because of the settings and simulations used.

Thanks for scrolling to the bottom of the list. I hope you’ll agree that this is a good amount of additional content that you can access as an app owner.

More will be added to this list over time, and some will be moved over to the site as well, but app owners will always have some exclusive recipes not available on the website.
