This is the most comprehensive explanation of the film simulations I have encountered. I have struggled to determine how to use them without the complex recipes suggested by others. Thank you.

I really enjoyed and learned about the Fuji film simulations and how they work and affect your finished photo. The B&W simulations with filters was also very good. I would highly recommend for a good overview. I also just purchased the full Mirrorless Camera class. I know I will learn quite a bit!

A really well conceived and executed introduction to Fujifilm film simulations. It gives a good understanding of what they are meant to do, and how to use them. Allthough it works well as an introduction, it also goes well beyond the basic, for instance when covering effects of white balance shifts with Acros simulations.

The best explanation for how and when to use the Fujifilm simulations. You could spend a lot of time in trial and error determining how to best use the simulations in camera only resulting in frustration. When here it is the best explained and demonstrated uses for the simulation. It just doesn't get any better than this.

I highly recommend this short course. The information is clearly and professionally presented with graphics and images to demonstrate the different film simulations and how they relate and differ from each other and why you would choose to use them. Prior to discovering this course, I spent several days reading blogs and watching YouTube videos about Fujifilm film simulations before I made the decision to purchase my first Fujifilm Camera, time which I would have saved had I watched this course first. All of the relevant information was condensed into a short series of logically organised and clearly presented videos, and I now feel completely confident to use the simulations in my camera.

Tuesday, September 08, 2020, 3:43 p.m. - Great intro to and also great details on the Fuji sims with accompanying sim comparison photos. I will be going through this course again to pick up details and tips that I missed on the first pass. Well produced videos with a narrator that had a great communication skills, not to mention a great voice.
