Are there settings for the 40D that emulate the style of velvia 50?

I guess for that matter are there setting that emulate any of the old film styles out there?

I cant think of any ways possible to do it in camera but i know you can download actions for photoshop which will allow you to recreate such an effect

You'll need to do this in Picture Style Editor. I don't know of any pre-sets, but if you play with the settings in the editor, you can then upload the profile to your 40D and set your pictures to shoot from that profile.

Here's a link to get you to the web site that explains it best and a good starting point. There's some examples on there you could use as a basis to start from.

There's also a Lightroom preset for this, I believe

i know what you mean the fuji film was quite brilliant with greens etc. this will work somewhat similar in jpeg files. i do all my pictures in landscape mode and boost the saturation a little. now a lot of people are going to say shoot raw. however if you're just shooting stuff you are just goofing off with give that a try. in the manual it tells you what each specific setting does i.e landscape for richer greens, portrait for better skin tones etc. pick a subject with multi colors like a quilt on some green grass with a person and try them out. let me know what you think. you have nothing to lose by experimenting..its not like you have to wait for the film to be processed.

I just whipped this together after reading about several sites on Velvia. I came from Ektakrome days before Velvia came out but I think I simulated something similar with this picture style.

Just download it and open it in the picture style editor.

Let me know if it works for you and let me know what is missing? I think I covered it pretty good but might need more tweaking.

Instructions on how to install this is found here:

Thanks I have tried it and placed some of my work on my flickr site. I have tweaked the green a little which is what I like about velvia 50.

Those setting do look good....

Excellent to hear. I didn't want to overdo it, as my original green tweak has a tendency to posterize with yellow, so I had to be careful not to overdo it. I'm going to do more tweaking and will upload a new version.

The big key is the contrast curves, so as long as I got that down, I'll continue to tweak. The photos look great and give me a nostalgic look at old slide transparencies.

@kinematic that looks interesting and I download it but the mac doesn't seem to recognise it. Is this a pc file only?

IMPRINT it was made on a Mac. It was compressed as a zip and should download as either as a .zip file or a .pf2 file which you'll need to use Picture Style Editor or using Digital Photo Professional. Make sure you're using version 3.1 as I believe there's some issues with the 3.0 and below with importing .pf2 files.

PhotoScape software has colour settings for Velvia, Provia, Portra and Agfa at three levels each. It's also got a setting for a Cross Processed look and a Cinema Film look.

Lots of other useful tools with the software such as frames, vignettes, annotations, RAW converter, Colour picker, Screen capture etc. etc.

And it's free. Check it out,
