I owned a Fujifilm X-T3 for 3 years and I NEVER used the film simulations

One of the selling points of Fujifilm camera systems is that they come with a range of simulation modes based on 35mm film. From Velvia and Provia to Acros and Sepia, you can change the look of your photos in just a few clicks of a button – and yet I’ve never bothered using them.

I used to own a Fujifilm X-T3 and honestly, parting with it was one of the hardest decisions. There were so many things I loved about it; the exposure control dials, the way it felt in my hand, how it looked, and ultimately how good the image quality was (when shooting in good lighting conditions). However, one feature I never used in the entire three years I owned it was the film simulation modes.
