The Visual Supply Co, short VSCO, has made it a habit to regularly update their series of film simulation presets for Adobe Lightroom, ACR and Photoshop. What began with Film Pack 01 and a number of then current-production film emulsions such as Fujifilm 400H, Kodak Portra 800 or Ilford HP5+ now comprises a total of five issues that cover both color and b&w negative film emulsions, slide film emulsion and even a couple of Instant films.
With Film Pack 05, VSCO now introduces a set of what they call ‘archetype consumer films’, that is lower-end emulsions that you’d typically find in a huge discount bin in your local supermarket. The collection comprises emulsions such as the classic Kodak Gold 100, the cheap and cheerful Agfa Vista series, and Fujifilm’s legendary Neopan 400, whose death we mourned not long ago.
VSCO Film Pack 05 is now available in the VSCO store for either Lightroom 5 or ACR and Photoshop (CS6 & CC), and is currently on discount. For a limited time–two weeks, to be exactly, until March 11th–you can get the collection at the reduced price of US-$ 89.25. After that, it’ll be back up to its regular price of US-$ 119, just like VSCO’s other products. A detailed description of the contents of each VSCO Film Pack can be found here.
