Emulation pack for Capture One
This is a tailored emulation pack made specifically for a single camera model. Please be sure to write the specific camera model during the checkout process.
Our Film emulations are the result of long research and testing of the “mood” of a specific film model. Our purpose is not to emulate the specific result of the particular print/projection of the film emulsion. There are too many variable settings inside the film exposure-develop-digital scan process to be able to “scientific reproduce” that film look you can possibly remember or admire in your hands printed, in your screen scanned or on your wall projected. So the mood is what we are offering on our profiles and once you have your raw with our profiles applied over you will be sure that will be just starting point thanks to the freedom you will have to enhance your image keeping “that mood” alive with your saturations/contrast curve/recovering/etc.
We made colour profiles, not just presets and you will learn that enjoying our profiles.
Please start using these profiles with that in your mind: once applied you will not have a final result on your monitor, but something easily “enhanced” or “reduced” with the main purpose, to keep the mood.
Here is a small tutorial to start!
Kodak Portra 160
The slowest of famous Portra family colour negative film. This film has been made specifically for portraiture and wedding photography. Medium contrast and low saturation with warm tones make this colour signature perfect for your daylight pictures as the starting point of your editing.
You will enjoy the skin tones and the great colours coming from this emulation. As 160 and slowest of the family, the grain is the finest.
Kodak Portra 400
This is the emulation of the legendary Portra 400, the excellent colour negative film.
This emulation is excellent for portraiture, wedding and general photography; as faster than the Portra 160 is incredible both for indoor and outdoor shootings having a warm tone reproduction and average saturation and contrast. The grain is bigger than the Portra 160 but still very fine.
Kodak Portra 800
This is the fastest colour negative film of the Portra family, the tones are warm, and the final colour signature is more contrasted and a bit more saturated than the Portra 400 film. The ideal use is on portraiture and general photography.
If you are a medium to vivid colour lover, this is your emulation, able to keep the contrasts of the Portra family and the great skin tones and also giving you some punch on the colour sides. The grain is a bit bigger than the Portra 400 for a perfect “vintage” reproduction and also an incredible texture feeling on your prints.
This is the emulation of the famous Kodak Ektachrome slide film.

Landscape and also general photography are the ideal genres for this specific emulation; strong colours, medium to high contrast and fine grain are the basic details and the nice tone on the shadows gives to that colour signature his charisma.
Daylight outdoor is where this emulation shine; the grain is superfine.

Lightroom and ACR
Our emulations work using a preset made by :
-RGB curves (on Tone Curve panel)
So you have a preset for each emulation set; included are the specific colour profile and the specific RGB curves needed for the full fidelity and available for further editing for print or proofing.
Every emulsion has three different curves to enhance the flexibility of your favourite workflow:
Linear (linear information from the sensor with film emulation applied)
Flat (base exposure curve, no contrast added)
Standard (full exposure curve and contrast added)
sRGB output (full exp curve and contrast, for gamut compression from ProPhoto to direct sRGB export)
sRGB output preset contain a special Lut for gamut compression from ProPhoto to sRGB. The gamut compression has been made with a particular perceptual intent in
CIECAM02. This is handy for when you need to have a direct output to this space and the photo has out-of-gamut sectors.
Our emulations work using a style made by :
Every emulsion has two different illuminant profiles:
Thanks to Capture One engine, with luma, RGB curves and profile curve settings, you have the freedom to edit your image to your taste.
