New FIlm Test/Developing/Scanner Files: Kodak Gold 200 120 Film

Scroll down to content

I very recently started developing color film at home. Tried it once to prove to myself I could do it.

Did it again to see if I enjoyed doing it. I did. Round 3 was also a success as was those that followed.

The film this time is something special. Have used Kodak Gold 200 plenty of times and I really like it,…

…but this is the new 120 medium format strength variant.

Once again the negatives came out great using Cinestill CS41.

As usual, I scanned the negatives with my tried and true Epson V600. Photos were taken on a quick walk around the block in Burlington, NC. True to form for the Pentax 645N every single exposure was a success. Properly metered and focused. As noted in my previous post Pentax 645N cameras capture 16 645 images per roll rather than 15. Here are all 16 shots including a retake after I almost fumbled the camera for a moment and momentarily set the shutter speed to X by accident when I put a death grip on it so it would not fall. After a moment of panic, I was reminded why I need to use a camera strap.

Result? Obvious. A film I already like with additional surface area? Had to be a win and it was.
