When I heard that Kodak were producing Gold in 120 format I was pretty excited .. not because it was Gold as I haven’t really shot too much of it in the past and to be totally honest I had to look on the internet for samples just to see what it was really like .. I was excited because I shoot film 95% of the time I was happy that there was another film stock on the market.
I pre ordered a 5 pack from the brilliant https://analoguewonderland.co.uk/ and eagerly waited for it to arrive which wasn’t all that long to be fair.
As it was a 200 iso film I didn’t want to rush out and just shoot the film I wanted to try it in nice light so it was a fortnight before I eventually shot it.
I used my trusty Yashicamat 124G and went out on a nice long walk in the sun.
I had the roll dev/scanned by https://filmdev.co.uk/ and was very happy with the results.
The film was lovely and sharp and considering how bright it was on the day the latitude was great with no blown highlights and plenty of detail in the shadows and very little grain.
Like many of the examples online that I have seen the film gives a nice warm look which obviously helps if you shoot it in the sunshine.
My usual colour negative film is Lomo CN400 which I love but Gold 200 really impressed me, the only thing that I would like is is the extra stop that CN 400 gives but for my next roll I will push it to 400 just to see how it performs.
I would thoroughly recommend this film and the best thing is the price compared to others on the market … it’s great value
Anyway here is the whole roll …. comments welcomed

Nicely done Tim.
I’m looking forward to making some darkroom prints with my newly arrived rolls.
Very nice shots, Tim! Gold is a good film stock, and it looks good in 120. 👍
I’ve really enjoyed shooting the new Gold 200 in 120. I did a two week Route 66 trip and shots 5 rolls of Portra and 3 roll of Gold 200 in my Yashica Mat-124 G. I can’t tell the difference between the two.
