Sample text

The sprocket hole for 35 mm negatives proposed by Bell and Howell was smaller and had rounded short sides. This sprocket hole is known as the negative (N) or Bell and Howell (BH) sprocket hole and became the negative standard. By accepting two different sprocket holes for one film gauge, the industry was attempting to achieve longer life prints and the best possible stability in the positioning of negatives and dupes in cameras and printers. The positive print sprocket hole has a greater height than the negative, improving transport by rollers and the rounded corners reduce the risk of tears.

The film was exposed in the camera down one side of the film, then reversed and exposed down the other side. After developing, the laboratory slit the roll along its lengthwise axis, obtaining two 8 mm strips which were spliced together to make one length. The Super 8 and Single 8 formats were presented by Kodak and Fuj, respectively, in 1965. The main advantage lay in using a smaller perforation and therefore an image almost doubled that of Double 8 with a considerable increase in image quality.

Both were marketed with reversal films, which are developed directly to a positive image. 5 mm film The film making industry news film, and television in the 1960s later used 16 mm film extensively. 5 mm film (also known as Pathé Baby) never made it beyond the home movie environment and was practically ousted from the market when 8 mm film was introduced. It had a smaller surface area than 16 mm when it was introduced and therefore a lower quality, but its principal drawback was mechanical, a result of the single, centrally located sprocket hole.
