Mucking about with another film simulation recipe. This is supposed to be akin to Agfa APX 400 film.

Not sure how I feel about it yet, but I do like this image. Still need time to experiment with it.

Agfa APX 400 Film Simulation

Film Simulation = Acros + R
Sharpness = +4
Shadows = +4
Highlights = -2
Grain = Weak
Noise Reduction = -4
Dynamic Range = DR400
White Balance = Auto
Color = n/a
ISO = Auto (6400)
Exposure Comp = +1/3 to +1 1/3

A little fun here to show the differences between the Panatomic-X 50 Film simulation I love and a new Agfa APX 400 I'm toying with. They both have their merits, but I think the Agfa has a "thicker", more dense feeling too it where as the Panatomic has a more definitive contrast.

I do like the Agfa sim but not sure if I would use it a ton just yet.

I'll post the images Agfa one first, then the Panatomic and then the recipes at the end this time.

Ok.... Finally got it and tried my hand at the ilford Delta 3200.
Still a work in progress, but I like the grain structure so far.

The recipe at this moment:

Film Simulation = Acros + G
Sharpness = -2
Shadows = +4
Highlights = -2
Grain = Strong
Noise Reduction = -4
Dynamic Range = DR400
White Balance = Auto
ISO = 12800

The samples, including a zoom in so you can see the grain structure better .

Loving the sims in here - thanks for the work Andrew. I have tended to use a Tri-X sim in Film Pack quite a bit, I may give some of those above a try.

Photo from this AM. Not sure if I tried to emulate any specific film, but the settings ended up almost what is listed above for the PanatomicX50. I keep vacillating between no grain and weak grain, and I keep the same base custom settings for C4 - C7, base Acros and + Ye, R, and G filters. WB settings are there for some of the color sims, and the auto ISO is a compromise between the color and monochrome sims.

Film Sim: Acros+R
DR: DR100
Grain Effect: Off
White Balance: Auto, +3 R, -4 B
Highlight: +3
Shadow: +3
Sharpening: +3
Noise Reduction: -1
ISO: Auto (1600)
Exp. Comp: as needed
