Classic Chrome Film Recipes

Film recipes based on the Classic Chrome film simulation

One of the killer features of Fujifilm cameras is the Classic Chrome film simulation. Using the unmatched expertise of the Fujifilm colour scientists, they have provided us with a film simulation that delivers a retro vibe with a stong Kodachrome aesthetic. Of course, that last part is never mentioned officially!


Used without any adjustments, the Classic Chrome simulation produces wonderful images with a distinctive look. But, it’s also a versatile base from which to generate a wide range of soft tones and nostalgic styles. Here are my recipes built from Classic Chrome.

Top 3? How about Kodak Gold, Yakisugi and Deep Forest?
