Came across this yesterday. Is Kodak rebranding their 100 speed film as a professional type?
In life you only get one great dog, one great car, and one great woman. Pet the dog. Drive the car. Make love to the woman. Don't mix them up.
Apparently it goes back to 1997. I don’t think this is a current product.
I bought this film in Tajikistan (just north of Afghanistan) in 2007. Maybe they are selling the same film in US under another name.
Counterfeit? I'd suspect it in Tajikistan; less so in Iowa, but it is possible. What is its provenance?
You mean from Chinese film factories? The film felt and looked like Kodak, and so did the pictures.
What about relabeled motion picture film?
Are the sprocket holes shaped different?
In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni.
no, not different.
The shop (University Camera in Iowa City, IA) had several unboxed rolls, and also a boxed 5-pack. I looked at the 5-pack and saw the expiration date was sometime in 2012, so these are recent rolls.
I discussed my find in this thread:
Seems to be Gold 100. Bought a few rolls in Pacific Mall--a large Chinese shopping complex--in Toronto late last year. Prints like Gold 100.
