Fuji - Acros wow
3

I’m definitely going back to Fuji and plan to purchase the X100 V at the Photography Show, NEC next month.  Hoping for some “show” deals.  In the meantime I’ve been looking at Acros film simulations on the internet.  Blown away by them.  I should imagine Acros images taken in the rain look moody and brilliant.

They are fantastic, it is my favorite simulation without a doubt.  I do add in the red filter quite a bit with it.  Good luck.  If you haven't used the X100 series cameras before, you will love it.  I currently have the original X100 and the X100F.

How would you describe it? I can't really put my finger on how it's different from the standard BW simulation. But when I do my own kind of thing through SilverEfx, it tends to be very Acros like.

”Appreciation” is personal, but “understanding” may be common. When something is deeply understood, one tends to develop a heightened appreciation of it.

Also adjusting highlight and shadow settings can have a big effect.

I've been appreciating Acros with my X-T3.  Great and subtle grain there too, but to see it I have to turn off the X-T3 "grain effect".  I could shoot monochrome with "grain effect" turned on, but it isn't as good as Acros grain.

If I develop my raws (shooting Acros and saving Raw+JPG) and choose Acros as the film sim in the raw developer, I don't get the grain.  It is only in the in-camera JPGs.  Funny.  I've been using the Fuji/Silkypix free raw developer.  So, because of this I like the JPGs from the camera better than raws.

Lately I've been shooting ISO bracketed Acros, which makes three JPG and/or Raw copies of the image (just one shutter click) at different ISOs.  Then I can bring the JPGs directly into HDR software.  Loving this.

Sometimes I'll take the raw and develop it in color, depending on the content.  It's nice to have this resource, even though it saves to the SD card a bit slower.

I have not heard that cameras from other manufacturers do ISO bracketing.  It's the closest thing I've found to "single-shot HDR".

Good luck and happy shooting!
