Checking out Fujifilm's film simulations: sample RAW images from the x-t2

Well it has been a long time coming but I am finally making the move from Nikon to Fujifilm.  Honestly, I have become so sick of lugging around a heavy dslr and lenses around the city that it was really starting to grind me down so moving to a lighter system was something I had been considering for a long time.  For me, the move to mirroless was almost entirely based on the smaller weight and size of the body size and lenses.

That being said I thought I might blog about any issues, ideas or tips I have as I begin dipping my toes in the Fujifilm mirrorless world.

First up, I thought it may be useful to view samples of Fujifilm's renowned film simulations.

Just so you know.  All of these images were shot on a Fujifilm x-t2 in RAW.  I imported images in to Lightroom, applied White Balance and the Fujifilm profile - no other editing was applied, no sharpening, noise reduction, nothing.
