It’s time. So far, only one color preset and one black and white preset have been living on my Fujifilm X100V. This afternoon another color preset was added. Heavily leaning on a Fuji X Weekly film recipe, I’ve added a version of Bleach Bypass to my camera. Next to warm analog-looking photos, I really like harsh tonalities and low saturation so Bleach Bypass is perfect to give a try. It’s sadly not part of the X100V by default but the Fuji X Weekly version seems very nice on first try. We’ll see if it has a place in the second slot of my Q-menu.

In other news, I came home with a robot vacuum today (as a sort of surprise for Charlotte and a gift for myself) and we’ve been looking at it doing the rounds for the past half an hour or so. The cats keep a wary eye as well, though probably not to make sure the machine doesn’t trap itself somewhere.1 You can find a straight out of camera jpeg — with the new film sim of course — below. Oh, and it’s shot at ISO 8000 with the 2x digital zoom function and I missed focus so please forgive the grain.

  1. I’m sure they even secretly hope it gets stuck. ↩︎
