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:

  1. 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…
