I've been using the Fuji X-E1 for several months now and I'm still quite confused on when to use the film simulations like Astia, Hi-Pro neg & Neg standard. In what particular scenario should I use which film in different situations? I know that it is a matter of taste & style on what film should one use, but what do other Fuji users use in what situations?

I had a similar question to this earlier. Maybe How do I evaluate a camera's JPEG tone curve options when the manufacturer only provides flowery prose? will help a little bit? –  mattdm Apr 27 '13 at 1:47
    
There is no way one can answer this for you. I personally test all the modes and set it to the one that gives the most realistic color. I never change it after that but that is because of the style of photo I like. –  Itai Apr 27 '13 at 3:24

Whenever you desire the look they offer. Don't look to others as for when they use them. Try them out, see how they work. Use them in unconventional ways. Following a herd is boring.
