Ordered Kodak Gold 100, got Profoto XL 100 (?!)
Apparently Kodak Gold 100 has been discontinued. Neither B&H nor Adorama has it in stock. Unique Photo showed it as in stock, so I ordered five rolls. And I got something called Kodak Profoto XL 100 instead. It's interesting that it says "Kodak Professional" on the package, which would place it in the same category as Portra and Ektar -- yet it sells at consumer film prices. Anyway, I've read many conflicting and wide ranging things about this film -- that it's marketed to "poor" countries, that it stands up to heat, that it's just Kodak Gold 100 rebranded, that it's very different from Kodak Gold (better and worse)...
My initial instinct was to return it, or complain that I didn't get what I ordered. But then I thought, what the hell. So I plowed a roll through my XA2, though it will be several weeks till I'm developing C-41 again.
Anyone have any thoughts, facts or experiences about this film?
