Now you can enjoy the legendary Kodachrome colour signature on all your cameras
Modular pack for Lightroom/ACR
You must own Adobe DNG basic pack to get emulations working. This emulation pack works on Lightroom 7.3 and over/Camera Raw 10.3 and over.
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 extensive research and testing to capture the essence and "mood" of specific film models. Our intention is not to imitate the exact results of a specific printed or projected film emulsion, as there are too many variables involved in the overall process - from film exposure and development to digital scanning - to accurately reproduce the exact "look" you may remember or admire. Instead, we offer the mood of the film as captured in our profiles, giving you the freedom to enhance your image using your own creative vision while preserving that unique mood.
Our profiles are more than just presets, they are carefully crafted colour profiles designed to help you achieve the desired look and feel of the film. It's important to keep in mind that our profiles serve as a starting point for your creative process, and the final result you see on your monitor will not be the final product. However, the flexibility and freedom our profiles offer when using them to enhance or reduce the mood of your image is a valuable tool in your creative toolkit.
Discover the joy of using our profiles, knowing that each one is designed to capture the unique mood of the film it emulates.
Here is a small tutorial to start!
Kodak Kodachrome 4×5
Our emulation of the superb colour signature from the WW2 slides as corrected and restored in the last ten years by many editors.
Soft contrasts with a bright palette ready with a click; you will have the room for any enhanced selective colour as the restore process always shows (you can enjoy some samples HERE and HERE). So be ready for your process, choosing carefully a red, a blue or a yellow to make more impact and, why not, treat the final image with some grain and a 4×5 proportion!
We offer two different colour reproductions: one for bright light conditions, one for low light-indoor.
Kodak Kodachrome Haas
Our emulation of the colour feeling of the works made by the master Ernst Haas.
A vintage look born for street and reportage photography is also very addictive for environmental portraits; this emulation might give both a pleasant brown or a cold blue impact to your image, all goes back to the main starting point.
So, relax and enjoy one of the most iconic looks of Kodachrome.
Kodak Kodachrome Last Roll
Our emulation of the colour reproduction seen on the “last roll” of McCurry; we did spend months trying to replicate colours and light reproduction of this legendary film. This is a step closer to the “National Geographic” mood you would aim for if very passionate about reportage photography, with strong crimson reds and high contrasts.
Kodak Kodachrome Sixties
Our emulation of the colour feeling on the general photography during the 1960s.
Probably today is the most common palette starting point for any movie set on that and the following decade. High contrasts, strong cold tones and improved skin-tone reproduction; this is what you need for cool portraits and general people photography.
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 :
Thanks to Capture One engine, with luma, RGB curves and profile curve settings, you have the freedom to edit your image to your taste.
Please do not forget, on Capture One this will be a custom service made for a single camera model. Please be sure to write the specific camera model during the checkout process. Once received the camera model you will receive by mail the emulations in two working days.
Our grain settings are made to follow the original impact.
