Best Fuji Profile for Green

The Peak District. Fuji X-T2, 18-135 lens, ISO200, f/13.0, 1/60″.

If you’re a Fuji shooter who uses Lightroom to process your RAW files, I’m sure you will appreciate the excellent Fuji Colour Profiles. Although Lightroom provides a default Adobe Standard profile, it’s often worth experimenting with some of the other Fuji profiles found in the Camera Calibration tab.

In the past, I have tended to favour the Provia profile for most of my images. Recently though I have found the Provia effect a little too strong. This is especially true where there is a lot of green in the image such as grass or trees. The images end up being too saturated with emerald green grass which is difficult to correct.

Now I have a new favourite profile for the Landscape scene. Where there is a lot of green in a picture shot during the day, I’m finding the “Camera Pro Neg. Std” profile produces better results. This profile seems to provide a much more realistic starting point for the typical landscape scene. Whilst it tends to be a little weak on the saturation, it does produce much more realistic and natural colours, especially for the greens in the scene.

If you shoot Landscape scenes in RAW with a Fuji, I would encourage you to try this profile.

  1. Thank you for the tip! I really dislike Fuji’s landscape greens and was trying to figure out what to do about it. I’m looking forward to giving your suggestion a time.
