Over the past couple of weeks, I was camping and was also waiting for my first roll of slide film (Fujifilm Velvia 50) to come back from the folks at DC. Due to my ignorance, I didn’t know that it would take two weeks for the film to get processed. “Oh well,” I said to myself, “What to do in the meantime?”
Alvin’s Film Follies (Part VIII – Playing with Some “Gold”)
What an odd roll of film to discover in my son’s bedroom – Kodak Gold 200?! I found this odd because:
- It is ASA 200. I’m used to seeing and using either 100 or 400 consumer films. I guess 100 speed doesn’t exist for consumers anymore…
- It is a Kodak consumer film that I don’t normally use (as you may know that I normally used Fujifilm in the past),
- I don’t recall buying this film for my son.
- It was in a 3-pack.

Even before I picked up the Fuji Acros film (mentioned in my last post), I had walked into the Henry‘s Camera Shop down the street from DC and found a roll of Ilford SFX 200 film. I was intrigued by the box – It was black, with the letters SFX in purple…why is this film different? So I bought the roll and later that day asked Jon about it…
