Fujifilm X-Pro3 Review Part II: Comparing Classic Negative with Provia.

Hi!

Before we get to Part II, a quick reminder that my main review of the Fujifilm X-Pro3 is here.

It’s been a busy week with the official release of the reviews on the Fujifilm X-Pro3 and it is great to even see the related Facebook groups such as Fujifilm ClubX group grow exponentially with users casual and professional alike getting into the fray and sharing their knowledge (and well, of course – both positive and negative views but that’s a life in a nutshell

As promised, I am very glad to share more samples of photos shot on the new film simulation Classic Negative vs more popular film simulations such as Provia.

For samples of other film simulations, they are shared in Part 1 of the review.

Of course one might ask why the choice of Provia and it is because Provia to me is a benchmark, bring Fujifilm’s ‘standard’ film simulation.

One more set to go.

*As always, my standard disclaimer is that these images are all shot with a pre-production X-Pro3 and mostly edited to my preferences from SOOC JPEGS due to the lack of raw support for the X-Pro3 in LR CC at the moment this article was written. 

Concluding thoughts. 

In my opinion, the Classic Negative film simulation although not an everyday every-moment type of film simulation like Provia, Pro Neg High or Astia is indeed unique in itself, allowing photographers to project a feel of old nostalgia in their creative work.

Developed with Fujifilm’s more than 80 years of experience in color science and film development, film simulations are developed to provide photographers more flexibility in their tool kit to express certain moods or scenes.

I am glad that there is now another very interesting film simulation added to the family. There are really some situations where I can say Classic Negative can be useful to the stills photographer and in a way, I do not see myself using Classic Chrome much with Classic Negative now available.

What is your take? 😉

Thank you for reading.

      1. Hahaha, but my friend, not all Asians have fair skin and some of my most beautiful friends don’t come near to being fair too. I’m sure that it’s a film simulation that has its own place for usage 🙂
