I Re-created Fuji’s Classic Negative as a preset for any Camera

So the Fuji Xpro 3 brought a new color profile, Classic Negative. The problem is I was not into the reverse screen and I don’t like to be limited across cameras.

Th look is based on Fujifilm Superia, a classic negative film of the 90’s and since there’s zero technical reason to make color profiles work only on some cameras, so I set to work and made presets/styles/Lut for this process as I want color grades I can use anywhere. You can watch my vlog showing how I made it HERE.

This look along with some other Superia variants are included in Filmist collection. They can be used in Lightroom (mobile too) Capture One and software that uses LUT’s like OnOne Photo or video editors like Premier Pro,  Resolve and more.

Hope you enjoy. — Gav

  1. What is the base curve for Fuji cameras for this profile?
    When I apply it on a raw file from Fuji which was taken with Acros color profile in the camera activated, the output file after your preset is also black and white and not in color. Using newest version of Capture One 12.

    So which curve should be selected?

    Thank you.

    1. I use Film Std on all presets otherwise it’s hard to calibrate color. There should be no black and white as the preset should overwrite that base curve but I’ll check and see if I missed that box. But yes Film Std will give you the correct color base.

  2. Thanks for this Classic Neg . Comparing on Capture one between XT3 Raw with capture one built in ‘Classic Neg’ and same Raw with your preset is fairly indentical !!

    Great , i will be now able to apply your ‘Classic neg’ to my XE2 Raw !!

    Thanks again ! Good job !

  3. That looks great! Any chance to make this work together with the SilkyPix RAW converter? Thanks!
