If you’re looking for any sort of film emulation/simulation software out there, I’d arguably throw a lot of my weight behind RNI Films All Films when it’s used properly. If you’re already using the popular Adobe Lightroom add-on (reviewed here) then you’re most likely very happy with the results. You’ll also be pretty stoked to know it just got an update to include new camera support for the likes of the Fujifiilm GFX 50S.
The new update doesn’t only add more support for new cameras like the Fujifilm GFX 50s and the Leica M10, but also offers a new set of slight changes. For example, Really Nice Images (RNI) updated their base Fujifilm Pro 400H preset. For photographers who have used the film, this is great news as I seriously feel like that’s one film which a lot of companies don’t get right. They understand Fujifilm’s tendency to skew more towards the green side of things than the purple side, but otherwise the colors have never really been spot on.
Admittedly, I’m not sure I’m going to upgrade. For Adobe Lightroom users and those who use RNI films All Films, I seriously encourage you to get the free upgrade especially with the fact that film grain is now turned off by default (as per customer request despite the fact that this doesn’t deliver a more film-like look and feel). But what you’re getting in return is the ability to dial in film grain from ISO 100 to ISO 1600. However, I’ve become more and more enamoured with what I can do with Capture One 10, and I genuinely hope that RNI brings their presets there.
With cameras like the Fujifilm GFX 50S and other medium format options not being well supported in Capture One 10 though, due to Phase One’s competitive beliefs, I’m not sure the program will be able to receive as much support overall.
Below are more details from the press release.
