5 Frames on Expired Kodak Gold 200 at The Carnival in Paris – By Benoit Arlet
“Are you interested by this?” My neighbor and friend Philippe, hand widely opened, shows me a yellow canister tagged Gold 200. I grab it, a bit confused:
“I thought you only shoot digital.”
“I do. But I found this little baby in my attic yesterday and bet you should be interested!”
“In your attic…? But… when did you buy it?”
“In the late 90’s I think, may be 2000.”
“More than 20 years? I must try it!”
Next Sunday is carnival in Paris and the wheather forecast is pretty encouraging. Let’s give it a try. That day I grabbed my Yashica Electro 35 GSN, loaded it with the Gold 200 and rated it at 100 ISO to compensate the 20 years of the film.
