Hello, new user of the Fuji Xpro2! and my questions are probably been partly / mostly answered, I have read a lot of posts and visited many photographers blogs, and also found a lot of interesting info on the Fuji web site about film simulation modes. I have been playing with some since, I still use 120 film with my middle format camera, I’m quite used to the individual character of each manufacturer from Kodak, Ilford and of course Fuji. Over the years I have been using a lot of Ns160 and Porta400 and find both films excellent. I get the films processed most of the time via Fuji Frontier and I get scanned negatives that are excellent. I get my work printed in labs with real color enlargers and don’t go via scanning the negative (only to publish on internet). With the Fuji, I find the simulation excellent and get very impressive jpeg, and I use raw files if I need to (that's another story..). But I’m having trouble getting the Ns setting or the Provia Standard working for me, as I’m looking to get the pictures closest to what I’m actually seeing. And no matter of what I do I either get too contrasty or too flat with a weak image I want no color saturation, just real color, neutral or plain or boring call it what you like , and I want highlights or shadow the way they are. I have tried the following settings that are very close: Ns Highlights: +1 or 0 Shadows: +1 or 0 Color: +1 or 0 Sharpness: 0 Noise reduction: -4 Std Highlights: 0 Shadows: +1 or 0 Color: -4 or -3 Sharpness: 0 Noise reduction: -4 On both versions Ns and Std shifting the shadow +1 gives too much contrast, on a cloudy day the pictures looks like a a lot of black has been added, but that contrast unnatural as it might be, makes the picture a bit more interesting. On the other hand if I set the shadow to 0 the image is so flat that is doesn’t look right either. I’m kind of stuck looking for half values or even thirds to have a natural contrast. As anyone as experienced similar problems when tweaking settings for films? I did try also the Nh path lowering colors and contrast but I reach the same problem. Classic Chrome I did not like the way the sky is rendered and is too cyan... If you can share some of your settings to achieve a plain neutral look I’ll greatly appreciate. Thanks!
