The FUJIFILM X-H1 flagship camera is now shipping and it is nice to see that FUJIFILM has kept its promise to deliver an ETERNA LUT in time for its F-Log gamma picture profile.
In my FUJIFILM X-H1 review you could see some sample footage taken with the included ETERNA film simulation picture profile, which – to my eyes – was very pleasant to look at. Now, shortly after hitting the market, FUJIFILM is offering three free LUTs for downloading. One of them is the ETERNA LUT, which will bring your F-Log “flat” image to look as if it it was shot with the original ETERNA film simulation picture profile (some visual differences may occur depending on the filming environment).
It is worth mentioning that the Fujifilm X-T2 does not have the ETERNA film simulation picture profile built-in, although it can record in F-Log mode when connected to an external recorder. So if you are after the ETERNA look when filming with the Fujifilm X-T2, this is a nice solution for you.
Speaking of the which: if you had a chance to look at the interview I did with Jun Watanabe-san form FUJIFILM, it is encouraging to know that they are seriously considering adding an internal F-Log to the X-T2 camera. Let me add that I wish that the ETERNA film simulation picture profile should be considered too…
