Kodak GOLD 200 120, did we need it?

While every new film is good news, the question arises: is it a good idea?

News of a new film should be good news in itself. I use the conditional as today’s announcement by Kodak to market the Gold 200 in 120 format leaves me at most tepid. We have come from difficult years for analog photography, with many beloved films being discontinued. Let’s think, for example, of the Fuji 400H which, with its disappearance, has thrown into a panic wedding practitioners all over the world.
