Fuji X Weekly is a blog created by photographer Ritchie Roesch who has been publishing a multitude of film simulation recipes to his blog for some time, categorized by which are compatible with specific Fujifilm sensors. The Fuji X Weekly app is a mobile library of those and other film simulation recipes that can be easily used in the field.
The app itself is free and immediately gives you access to a large list of recipes to try out. The recipes are designed to be leveraged using the custom preset option found in most Fujifilm cameras. While some cameras only allow for one custom preset at a time, some do allow for multiple. The app is designed to make it easier to find and save presets that you like and make it easier to adjust them in the field, which is especially helpful if your Fujifilm camera severely limits the number of presets you can save at a time.
Roesch has published a detailed guide on how to add film simulation recipes to your Fujifilm camera here.
As mentioned, the app is free and has no ads, but there is an option to pay an annual $20 “patron” fee to gain access to new recipes before they are eventually published for all Fuji X Weekly App users. There are currently seven recipes behind the paywall, and as those are released to the public new ones will take their place for paid users.
The app is currently available for iOS devices through the Apple App Store. Roesch says that he hopes he can publish an Android version in 2021.
