Special effects that enhance your photographic expressions even further
The FUJIFILM X-T30 offers various effects that can be combined with Film Simulation modes to enhance creative flair in color tones and gradations. The special effects available include the Color Chrome effect, which produces deeper colors and gradation in subjects that contain highly saturated colors, which are notoriously difficult to photograph. The Monochrome Adjustment function faithfully reproduces warm and cool blacks in digital photos, which used to be achieved with specific photographic papers and developers. The Grain effect adds graininess, typically seen in film-based pictures, to digital photos to create an analog-like texture. The camera also provides means of adjusting highlight tones, shadow tones, sharpness and other properties.
