    Gold 400 is NOT ultramax 400, right?

    The film imprint on mine is "Kodak GC 400" and I believe (someone please correct me if I am wrong) that the brand names can be Max 400, Gold Ultra 400, Ultra 400, Ultramax 400... Essentially the same film.

    That's how I understand it.

    I get whatever films I can and recently that has meant Gold 200. I like it anyway.

    But still... The colors have some great kick, but not too much kicks-ya-in-the-tushy saturation, like ektar does.

    That is an understatement particularly since there are no standards. And just to be sure you know, below are examples from a minilab Noritsu compared to a Coolscan of the same frame of Kodak Gold 100.

    Doesn't look like the same frame of film does it.

    I am biased to Kodak's color palette and have always liked the results I get from Kodak Gold 100, 200 & 400.

    Therein lies the reason I take with a grain of salt most statements made here about a color film's pallete, saturation, color cast, etc. Scanning introduces too many variables, and most folks here are scanning their color film. I've been able to make very nice prints from frames that I once conculded were hopeless, based solely on the scan.

    For what it's worth, I just ordered 25 rolls of Kodak Gold 200 from a nameless web site for about US$2 a roll. I plan on shooting a lot of it this fall when the leaves change.

    Please let us know what actually gets delivered. Most "nameless web sites" are delivering some other Kodak 200 film, like ColorPlus.

    Is Kodak still making Gold 200? I see it listed on their U.S. website, but haven't been able to find it in stores recently. It used to be everywhere, but all now only seem to carry Ultramax 400. I recently ordered Gold 200 online, but received ColorPlus 200 instead, which is not nearly as good. ColorPlus looks like something from the '70s or '80s...really nothing like Gold.
