Although designed this Lightroom preset is designed for the X100V it should have similar outcomes on other Fujifilm cameras that offer Classic Chrome or Eterna Cinema.

Although I love the muted feel of Classic Chrome and Eterna Cinema there are times when you want to lift the image. This is the Lightroom Preset I use as a starting point.
Once applied I will make micro adjustments to the exposure, black level and shadows/highlights. This is particularly relevant when shooting into the sun.
