The shutter speed knob on the Fuji X-T2 goes 18000 sec. While reading through the manual for the camera I saw a note about shooting at higher speeds using the electronic shutter. This image was shot at ƒ/4 at 132000 sec, ISO 3200. 132000 sec!!??

I have been shooting using the defaults on my Fujifilm X-T2 and getting good results. However, I want to shorten the path between the defaults, experimentation, and finding my own settings. I discovered Ritchie Roesch’s website via a Google search for “Classic Chrome Film Simulation Recipes”. Ritchie has created an incredible set of recipes for his XPro2 and X100F. I think these Chrome Film Simulation recipes are a good starting point for me to learn how these film simulations works, tweak them and find my own recipe.

I am using Ritchie's recipe with one modification. I am not a fan of film grain so I have set the grain setting to off for all of these. All of the images here were SOOC JPEGs.

I discovered Ritchie Roesch's website via a Google search for "Classic Chrome Film Simulation Recipes". Ritchie has created an incredible set of recipes for his XPro2 and X100F.

I will most likely use this recipe for most of my street photography and general photography.
