PictureFX Fujifilm Acros 100 & 100 II

It’s true, there were actually two versions of Acros, but in film simulation they don’t talk about it.
Acros was the original version and it was available until 2018.
In 2019, Fujifilm introduced Acros 100 II, just one year ago, and to say that we are in the digital age ! I’am a bid surprised they did, it turns out that real film is still in.
I also made two PictureFX Acros versions, so you can choose which one you prefer, or which version gives the best result with a certain lighting or subject.

As I have written before: Lut film simulations, recipes or presets, none generate a (perfect) copy of the product it is supposed to represent.
They do (sometimes) breathe the same atmosphere, color pattern and evoke the same feeling.
I myself started using Luts a long time ago, because the standard B&W from a camera or conversion by an image processing program was no more than a conversion of color to black, white and gray tones. The Luts I used in RawTherapee from Pat David were amazing and gave my pictures character.
And that’s the way you should look at it I think. Choose one or more simulation(s) that you like, to give your pictures the character you want them to radiate.

  1. The original Acros was one of my favourite film stocks, and now with my Fujifilm cameras it’s my go to monochrome simulation. I specifically like Acros with a red filter, I like the way it darkens the skies. You’re developing a great selection of LUTs, I hope they appreciate all the hard work you put into them.
