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!
The famous Neopan pro negative film was discontinued in 2013. Medium contrast and very fine grain with a big amount of grey shades make this monochrome signature perfect for your daylight pictures as the starting point of your editing.
Shadows are never compressed and there is a clear extension of the highlights
You will enjoy the general-purpose attitude from this emulation. We offer two different grain settings, 400 ISO and 1600 ISO.
This is the emulation of the Ilford Delta negative film, both 400 and 3200 versions.
This emulation is excellent for general photography; where is important the amount of tones in the whole frame. The contrast is medium to low and the extreme sides of the histogram are quite soft. The grain is very fine on the 400 ISO and very large on 3200 ISO version.
This is the Ilford Hp5+ emulation, the famous panchromatic film. This monochrome signature is ideal with its vintage look. The combination of low contrast, open shadows and highlights and the medium to high grain are perfect for your cool pictures.
Enjoy the “almost human” colour reproduction with no saturation of this emulation with his lovely grey tones for your general photography. As 400 ISO the grain is bigger than the average.
This is the emulation of the Kodak High-Speed Infrared Film (HIE).
This emulation is excellent for landscape but also for different kinds of portrait pictures.
We kept “under control” the effect of glow typical by this film including it with a low value, to enhance the IR reading on the green channel on the image and to add more freedom to the editing.
You will love the feeling of this preset on your editing process and the add of the medium to hard grain is the cherry on top!
This is the emulation of the Kodak T-Max negative film.
The film was famous for its incredible details and the extended contrast with both shadows and highlights well detailed. The superfine grain and the excellent details with the superb tone extension make this emulation the closest to the modern era digital black and white images. The grain are emulated in both 400 and 3200 ISO.
This is the emulation of Kodak Tri-X monochrome negative film.
This is one of the most iconic films in the history of photography and is typically known for its enhanced contrast on the black side. The emulation gives that contrast with more “closed” blacks and capped whites on a compressed histogram. The fine but cool grain completes the vintage and classic look!
