VSCO Film 03 Review | Instant Film | Before & After Examples

VSCO released their newest film presets for Lightroom & ACR today. We took a few minutes to look at them on one of our latest sessions. Rollover the photos and you’ll see the SOOC image.

Most of these are a bit extreme, just like the instant films they emulate. We’ve shot almost every one of these instant films and can definitely see their distinct characteristics showing through.

We tried a few of these presets on one of our latest engagement shoots, it was a foggy/overcast day and the FP-100c presets look pretty amazing.. those images should hit the blog tomorrow.

We probably won’t be using these for most of our client work.. but they are super fun and might sneak their way into quite a few of our personal photos.

Also, we’re super happy to see these presets working their magic on Fuji files, we have a bunch of images on our x100 ready to download 🙂

Everything else is special use only.
The Instant Film collection pushes tonalities a bit far, similar to instant film. The two exceptions are FP-100c and FP-3000b. They are both great all-around presets. The others might work in some situations, or at times you're tying to be different from the pack.

Great stuff, I mean 50 1.2L… cool one.

Hi I currently got ahold of vsco films from a torrent site, with its presets and camera profiles, curves etc. I’m an inspiring wedding photographer but can’t seem to find any fo the filter works. Is it better if I buy it on vsco? I dont know what seems to be wrong why I cant get the same effect as it should be. Pls help!

thank you!

Great set. I wonder if you have increased the contrast on those photos?

Hey Dylan and Sara, the links to the pictures seem to Be broken? Im very curious to see them:)

Anne! thank you for letting us know about the issue, it should be fixed now!!

Dare I say the sooc are better the majority of times?!

the whole pin it option takes the roll over feature away, not working 🙁

Wow – I’m truly impressed, before and after !

Awesome photos. Do you think VSCO3 is that much more of an upgrade over the previous version?

Gorgeous pictures, definitely buying them after seeing this Tx

I’m with Cole on this one, most of these are gorgeous before AND after!

you take rad pictures straight out of camera. that is all…
