Aerochrome anyone?
« on: June 29, 2020, 08:28:12 »
RNI (Really Nice Images) just released a plugin for Adobe Lightroom and ACR that emulates the long distontinued Kodak Aerochrome.  I'm not sure how precisely it would recreate the unique film originally dvelopped for scientific use, but 96 USD could be cheaper than modifying the camera and buying the Aerochrome filter.

How do you think?!

According to the sample images, the landscapes looks pretty much well simulated, but portraits look a bit strange: the figures seem to be rendered normally including the skin tones, while the environments look like Aerochrome...

Akira, this looks very funky, hence i like it a lot! Thank you for enlightening me. Could this be a way of shooting false IR with my mobile phone? What a treat it could be!!!

The company name is funky (apparently inspired by Really Right Stuff) in the first place.  So, the right company seems to be doing the right thing?!   :o :o :o
