The Best REFINED Presets for Matching Fuji 400 Film

REFINED Co presets are crafted by leading industry professionals with over a decade of experience in film and digital photography, specializing in weddings, portraits, lifestyle, stock, commercial, and editorial photography.

UNDERSTANDING FILM VARIANTS AND PRESETS


Film photography involves numerous variables, such as film stock, lab processing, scanning techniques, and exposure settings. Consequently, no single preset can perfectly match every Portra 400 or Fuji 400 image. However, REFINED Co offers several versatile preset collections designed to simplify the process of matching your film scans. Each collection includes multiple presets tailored to the preferences of experienced photographers.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT PRESET COLLECTION


Selecting the right preset collection depends on the type of work you do or aim to achieve. If you’re uncertain which collection suits your film matching needs, feel free to send us a couple of your film scans along with the corresponding digital files. We will create an edit video to demonstrate which collection best matches your requirements. Generally, minor adjustments in white balance and contrast can achieve a very close match.

OVERVIEW OF REFINED PRESET COLLECTIONS


REFINED I

REFINED I is inspired by years of shooting Fuji 400 film in natural light, resulting in clean and natural scans. This collection also pairs well with Portra 160, especially with the added depth presets included.

REFINED x Caroline Tran

  • Patina: Ideal for most Portra scans, offering bluer, richer greens, increased depth and contrast, and warm skin tones.
  • Pure: Perfect for Fuji 400, this preset provides a cleaner look with minimal color shift.
  • Serene: Works well for matching Portra or Fuji scans that are more monotone and cooler in tone.
  • REFINED x KT Merry

    Based on KT Merry's extensive work with Fuji 400H film, this collection includes 14 color presets designed for both daytime and low-light photography, effectively mimicking Fuji 400H film.
