I ran into the same issue when I first received my X100F. I wanted all 3 film simulations to employee the same Nr, HL, ST and Sharp settings as I had set up for the still image using a particular film sim. After some experimentation I arrived at a protocol that allows me to use my own choice of jpeg parameters in bracketing mode.Here's a question.
Does anyone use this feature, and has found a way to tailor the simulations when selected?
Here's what I mean. I usually shoot in "Acros" or occasionally "Chrome", jpg Fine+raw. Thus if I shoot a subject that cries out for colour, and I have used mono (or vice versa) I have a second bite of the cherry with the raw file.
In theory the film simulation bracketing should, for my purposes, be a god-send. But it isn't... I can't find a way to change the default jpg settings to my personal taste when in bracket mode (which is a drive mode) as I can with the raw converter in post. Ideally I'd like to set my film sims to my personal preferences and use those for bracketing, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do that. It would potentially save me HUGE amounts of time in post.
Am I missing something...?
Sure, one can discard the original sheet music of a composition after doing a single recording of it. Or throw away the negative after one has received a print from the digilab. It's uncommon, though, and I wouldn't recommend it. Luckily, Fuji is reacting by opening more modes to RAW compatibility, at least in their more advanced models. This includes FS BKT.I hear you. Let's remember that raw is a means to an end, not an end in itself.
Harry, welcome, and thank you - that's a very good workaround!I ran into the same issue when I first received my X100F.

I like the Classic Chrome and Acros with red filter as my 2 main film sim choices. I have set up each choice as a custom setting in my Q menu with the parameters set to my own sense of visual taste. The parameters are different for each film sim. This is how I enable the bracketing mode to reflect my parameter choices:
1. While in single image mode go to shooting setting, film bracket and set your choice of either black and white or color film sims for the bracket.
2. I then go to the Q menu and select either Classic Chrome or Acros with red filter as a custom setting for a still image shot.
3. I then go to Drive and select Film Sim Bracket.
4. All 3 bracketed images will now have the same jpeg parameters that you have set in the custom menu for a still shot. I have not discovered a means to set individual custom parameters so that each shot in the bracketed 3 has different settings but the same settings for each of the bracketed images match what I have set for taking a still image shot.
5. My experimentation so far would seem to indicate that the key to using your choice of jpeg parameters is how you set up your Q menu for a single shot. I lack the time and interest in going back to raw processing and have found the Fuji jpegs to be of sufficient quality to require minor post processing and still look decent to my untutored eye. I have been using these jpegs to provide digital imagery for a friend's web site and have received no complaints about the perceived quality of the images.
One of the many features that caused me to sell my X100T and buy the F was the Acros film sim. I am intrigued by the visual rendering of this digital black and white motif along with the updated functionality of the F compared to the T. At first I was confused as to why I could not shoot in a bracketed mode with my own settings but my workaround seems to work consistently for what I wanted to achieve.Harry, welcome, and thank you - that's a very good workaround!
