About Film Formats - Slides, Negatives, & Transparencies (1068 words)
Over the years there have been many film formats, and so it can be confusing to determine what type of materials you have.
Since there are many film formats we cannot explain all types, but will cover the more common ones; 110 (sub-miniature format), APS, 35mm (standard format), 120 (medium format), and 4"x5" (large format).
Inside the cassette the film is 23mm wide and the frames are 30.2mm x 16.7mm in size (don't open the cassette or it will be ruined!).
Frequently Asked Questions (3938 words)
After the film is developed at the laboratory, it is slit down the middle and the pieces are spliced together, resulting in an 8mm film.
The film itself comes either wound tightly around a plastic `core,' for loading into a camera magazine (either in a darkroom, or a portable `changing bag'), or, for 100' and 200' lengths, mounted on small metal spools (like those for regular 8mm), which can be loaded into the camera in moderately bright daylight.
This format is now rarely used for feature film cinematography, although it is often used for background plates and other visual effects scenes which benefit from the extra negative area and resulting high resolution of that format, as the negative contains an area which is four times that of a standard 1.85:1 projected frame.
