Good corse explaining how to set up your custom settings for SOC perfect pictures.

Blevin Davis


This is perhaps the most comprehensive course out there on Fujifilm film simulations and how to modify it to your liking. Its easy to follow, presented wonderfully with good video and explanations, it will change the way you shoot with your fujifilm camera

Bianca Elizalde


Thorough explanation in a very logical manner

Richard Fee


Thank you, This is the concise information in learning how to create the film look I want. Thisis an extremely comprehensive approach and takes a lot of the trial and error out of using the fuji x cameras successfully. You got me thinking.

David Lightner


A clear and well thought out course that has helped me understand Fuji Film Simulation recipes for the first time. The course is the right length, not too long or too short, and covers virtually everything you need to get experimenting and having fun with your Fujifilm camera.

Alan Marsden


One of the greatest benefits to the Fujifilm cameras is the ability to really control the look and feel of your images in-camera. This is a great course for guiding you through the steps of building and fine-tuning your own recipes to capture just the right look that you had in your head. It also covered some gotchas I wish I'd known about before I made some mistakes in the field.

Cary Beuershausen


The complexity of customizing Film Simulations using Fujifilm cameras along with X-Studio is simplified, well paced and brilliantly explained in this course. A “must see” if you want to get head around this powerful Fujifilm feature. The course has already paid dividends by enabling me to understand the impact of changes I make in Image Quality settings. Mother Fujifilm should acquire this course and add it to there arsenal!

Rick Rohles


Great topic in this course!

Marcin Kopciejewski


This course is very well explained in much detail. And I can confirm the "after course" support is excellent.

Phil Carter


The course helped me understand the settings to create my film recipes for my style of photography.

Richard Fiddelke

There are one hour and five minutes of video to take you from start to finish, and an additional 40 minutes of bonus video taking you through examples. These videos are broken down into short chunks as to not overwhelm you at once.

This course will work for nearly any Fujifilm X and GFX mirrorless cameras. However, some cameras do not allow you to program custom settings into the camera. These are the X-T100, X-T200, X-A5, and X-A7. The X-S10 does allow this, but you only get four settings while other cameras allow for seven.
