Comparison of Mastin Fuji Presets

It’s always hard to choose which film preset to go for – so here’s another useful comparison chart of popular Mastin Labs Fuji presets made to match your digitals to film scans.

From our experience Mastin Labs presets, especially the Fuji 400h ones, deliver very accurate results in respect to what a film shot would look like.

In this test here we’ve compared:

Mastin Fuji 400h preset
Mastin Fuji 400h pushed +1
Mastin Fuji 400h pushed +2
Mastin Fuji 160 preset
Mastin Fuji 160 pushed +1 and
Mastin Fuji 160 pushed +2.
