The Classic Lab – Frontier Edition

The Classic Lab - Frontier Edition

There are many approaches to translating an analog film with a preset into the digital world. VSCO, ReallyNiceImages, Mastin Labs, they all have their own idea of what a Kodak Portra 400 should look like. But we analog enthusiasts know it’s all a matter of interpretation. There is no ‘film looks like this’. If a negative film is scanned, it still has to be converted into a positive and here you quickly notice that there are many possible interpretations. Silverfast isn’t as neutral as Vuescan and a Lab scanner sometimes seems to be able to do magic. If you nod in agreement now, then you are probably either Team Frontier SP-3000 or Team Noritsu HS-1800. But maybe you don’t feel like a 3F-Scan from a Flextight X5? The Classic Lab does not only emulate the film, but also the scanner.


A profile emulates the scanner. Here the colors and tonal values are moved to the correct starting position to provide a perfect basis for the preset. This is where the magic of the Lab Scanner happens. First we start with the Fujifilm Frontier SP-3000.


The preset emulates the film and moves within the frame allowed by the scanner profile. All presets are optimized to offer the greatest possible analog charm with the best dynamic range.

This product will work with Adobe Lightroom CC (cloud based Version), CameraRAW (10.3 and above) and Classic CC (7.3 and above).
