Olympus Fuji-Style Color Presets for Lightroom now available!

When it comes to mirrorless cameras, Olympus is my #1.  No camera has topped the E-M1 series for me, and it just gets better and better.  I love the handling, I love the features, the options, the customization, I love the 4/3 aspect ratio, and I love the white balance and color I get out of the camera.  I even like a lot of the art filters, especially vintage 3.  I have to be totally honest though…I have a soft spot for Fuji and some of their colors.  I have always loved the X100 camera until they switched to X-trans sensors.  I don’t get along with that very well…and I am not so hot on the bodies, handling, and functionality of the Fujis.  They make excellent lenses…but I just can’t work with their system.  It’s not for me.  I’ve used every one of them…and they are spectacular…but just not for me.  Especially compared to the E-M1mkII.  Just like Olympus’ excellent color profiles, Fuji has a history of color.  Their in camera profiles are excellent…and sometimes that is the flavor a shot calls for.  I fell in love with Classic Chrome and Acros for black and white.  However, I can’t shoot fuji just for those.  So I have carefully created color settings for Olympus cameras that replicate those profiles as close as I could.

I present to you my “Fuji-Style” presets for Lightroom.

This pack of presets for Lightroom give you the look of the Fuji profiles at the push of a button.

These are designed primarily for Olympus cameras, as some utilize an Olympus color profile and have been tuned based on Olympus color response.  They will work with other cameras, but results may vary.  These are also primarily intended to be used on RAW images, but will work on JPG as well.  The presets can be applied and further adjusted as needed since they work in the RAW environment.  Just like all my other presets.

Included in this pack:

Acros
Acros+Ye
Acros+R
Acros+G
Monochrome
Monochrome+Ye
Monochrome+R
Monochrome+G
Astia
Velvia
Provia
Classic Chrome
Pro-Neg Hi
Pro-Neg Std
Clear Settings Function

These can act as a great starting point for your creativity.  If the Olympus color profiles aren’t doing it for you, try one of these on a shot and continue editing from there.  It might just be the color tweak you need to make that shot perfect!

  1. I am sure this is nice for those who like the Fuji-style. What would be really nice though is making som olympus-filters for the panasonics raws. As mfT is a multi-company platform, I have both panasonic and olympus cameras, but I like the Olympus JPEGs more, having “olympus”-filters for panaonsic raw-files in lightroom would be amazing.

    1. Hi Anders… that is an interesting option… i’ve never gotten that request before. I have access to Panasonic as a friend of mine shoots GH4 and GH5. Maybe I can see what I can do if I slow down a bit this winter!

  2. Interesting option to have Fuji presets available for OM-D, Tony!
    Will this work for E-M5II as well?

    I am wondering why you are comparing against Adobe Standard, which for me is the worst option if it comes to processing ORF in LR because it lacks contrast and colors compared to “Olympus Natural”.
    How does Velvia looks against Natural?

    1. Hey Karsten,
      Yes, the presets will work will all the Olympus cameras. I believe only one or two of the presets actually begain with an Olympus base profile, the rest are not dependent on a specific camera. So they will even work with other cameras too. The only catch being is that I calibrated tones based on an Olympus sensor…so other cameras might show different results. Still ballpark.

      As for Adobe Standard, I actually find it to be decent in certain situations. So I use the color profiles, or my presets as a form of starting point. When a shot will benefit from a different palette, or baseline which I then build upon. (or sometimes that’s plenty) I find regardless of the camera, sometimes the built in profiles are excellent, and sometimes I end up preferring adobe standard. Really depends on the colors present, the lighting source, desired white balance, and exposure level. Sometimes even olympus natural or portrait which is one of my favorite is too much. Or weird things happen, and having the less saturated tonality of adobe standard is just about right. Everyone’s color taste is different too, as is eyesight! For me, I actually have a set of post-profile adjustments I often add on. When I work with landscape scenes, I have an adjustment to the olympus profiles that adjusts the greens and yellows slight to a more pleasing tone for me. Those will be in the next update too.

      Velvia vs natural…the greens and blues are different. Fuji is heavy handed on those. Closer to Olympus vivid, except it seems Olympus is strong in cyan blues. I can try to post an example.

    2. Here is the comparison you requested!
      Olympus Natural
      Olympus Natural

      Fuji Velvia
      Fuji Velvia

      Both were shot in high-res mode with E-M1 mkII. Probably the 12-40 PRO. Both are duplicates with identical processing…only the profile changed, or color preset applied.
