Kodak Gold 200. An icon consumer film from the ’80-’90s. It is beloved by some and hated by others. What you definitely can’t say is that shooting it left someone indifferent. I find myself loving this film (I am not crazy about it, though), especially the warm tones and high contrast. What is even more impressive, is that Kodak Gold has a decent sharpness and fine grain for a consumer-grade film. Like that is not enough, the price for the Kodak Gold is quite cheap. Considering all of the above, the film seems a great choice for everyday use to have fun and store some personal memories.
My first experience with film started when my friend let me take some photos with her camera, one of which just struck me (to this day I think it is one of the best photos I have taken). After that, I remembered that at my parents’ apartment there is a point and shoot camera – Olympus Superzoom 700XB. It is extremely cheap and not so good, but it still worked. I took it to Barcelona for the holidays and shot two rolls of film there. When I got scans back – I got hooked.
