    1) Does anyone know who sells Kodak Gold 100 these days?
    2) Is it me or Kodak Gold isn't as good as the 200?

    The mail-order NYC retailers sell it for $1.39 to $1.99 a roll.
    Adorama, B&H, etc.

    In most market it's packaged as "Bright Sun" now, not Gold.
    It's you. Kodak 200 is very grainy, albeit high saturation
    and contrast. Skin tones are much worse than the 100.
    If you want a faster film, Ultra Color 400 is much better.

    The old Royal Gold 200 and 400 are now sold as "High Definition". I
    don't know what the stuff they sell in Stop & Shop is. Some of it is
    made in China.

    Thank for the info.

    Is this related to the Kodak T500? The speed is close and the characteristics
    you describe is very similar. I used the 500 for my last feature film and I
    thought it was impressive for a 500 speed film.

    Which 500T, 5218/7218 or 5229/7229 or 5279/7279?

    The films might be somewhat related technologically, maybe using T-grain
    and 2-electron sensitization. But 500T is a tungsten film with relatively
    low color saturation, whereas 400UC is a daylight film with bold reds,
    good skin tones, and blue-retaining sky on overexposure.

    Do you work in Bollywood, Jay? I really like Indian movies. The scenery
    is usually great and it's preferable to see a man and woman dancing
    instead of car chases and guns firing. However I always get a good laugh
    watching a car going around a corner at 2 MPH with tires squealing.

    Vision 2.

    I have done some work in India, tho I am based in US. I used 500T for
    day-for-night and to match shot with digital. 500T grain structure is similar
    to digital, tho "speed" of digital is about 320. I directed and DPed a feature
    near where "A Bridge on the River Kwai" was shot. Its one of my fav. films
    (well, most of David Leans, inc. Lawrence of Arabia.)


    << I really like Indian movies. >><BR><BR>

    Very good work is done India, but gets buried in thousands of the run of the
    mill stuff that come out every year. Even the most expensive movies are low
    budget by Hollywood.

    On an average, they are looking for entertainment at the end of the day. There
    is a need to roll comedy, drama, fantasy, action, etc. into one movie. Most
    people can afford to buy only two or three tickets a year to go to the theater.
    You need to give them a balanced dose for their money.

    Films are also a social guide. You need to worry about taboos and whats
    socially "right." For example, layers/judges, police etc. are glorified in the
    movies and are held to a higher standard, tho everyone knows of corruption. I
    guess they figure, at least in the film let them be good: Hope.

    Films like Silence of the Lamb--excellent script, well acted, well directed and
    it is overall an excellent picture--but will never run over there.

    << However I always get a good laugh

    Yes, but cars over there are not designed to corner well. They have long-travel
    (truck like) suspensions, designed to absorb large bumps, (yes worse than
    driving in DC) their cornering ability is compromised; I found out through hard
    way :)
