The color film presets come in two broad flavors: Frontier and Noritsu. These are emulations of a particular film when digitized using either a Frontier or Noritsu scanner. When conducting our research for Replichrome, we recognized that the equipment a lab uses to digitize its film has a profound effect on the finished product, so we chose to account for that choice by making separate presets based on the look of each scanner. Generally, Frontier versions have cooler shadows, lower saturation, darker reds, and a “flatter” look. Noritsu versions generally have more color saturation, warmer shadows, and are a bit punchier overall.
