Do you like the X100 velvia setting ??
May 29, 2011

Just curious if anyone likes the velvia setting ? I used to enjoy shooting Velvia (rated ISO 40, oh those where the days. How did we manage without ISO3200 ? lol) film and really thought Fuji would do a nice Velvia simulation on the X100.

Have to say that I find it just totally over the top on my camera though. Green's are nearly glowing, looking sort of like some really bad job of post processing by someone who just found the saturation slider. Just doesn't look at all natural.

The X100 otherwise has really fantastic overall color in its standard setting but the overly contrasty blacks and near day glo green with the Velvia just is a bit much for me.

Whats everyone elses take on this setting ?
