Using Andrew's "close to a Kodachrome" settings from above, with an ISO mod:

Film Simulation = Classic Chrome
Sharpness = +1
Shadows = +2
Highlights = +1
Grain = Weak
Noise Reduction = -3
Dynamic Range = DR200
Color = -1
ISO = Auto (1600)
White Balance = Auto, +3 Red, -4 Blue
Exposure Comp = as needed

I like this output for the landscapes around here better than Andrew's Ektachrome sim, which I do like for architecture and such. SOOC, re-sized for web.

During my daily walk, decided to mess about with this old recipe I have not used in a while. I think it renders the trees and such in a pleasing way.

I keep on liking the way my small-sensored X30 renders its in-camera jpeg Classic Chrome shots - they keep turning out close to the light and colour palette that is hovering in the dim recesses of my left brain.

It's good enough to almost make a person stop shooting RAW for an extended period.
I rarely used RAW when I was using the X30. The jpegs were quite nice. Part of me will miss that little camera. I just didn't use it much in recent months, and I felt like I needed to cull my gear somewhat.

Another shot using the X30's Classic Chrome 'film simulation' option.

What distinguishes this particular 'capture' is: I used the X30's "Pro Low-Light" option on its ADV mode setting. As far as I can tell, the Pro Low-Light option is simply a series of four shots fired in rapid succession which the camera then combines using an internal algorithm, to create one photograph (jpeg) with, supposedly, the sharpest elements of all four. An interesting, if not totally original concept--but the Fuji engineers have done a nice job implementing it in the X30, in my opinion--

The downside is that in this 'mode', the camera automates all functions, choosing both the aperture and shutter speed it deems most appropriate - and in the vast majority of situations, those are decisions I prefer to try to make myself.

But there is something cool, in a geeky way, about how it clicks off those four rapid-fire frames in quick succession.
