What Kind Of Film Do I Have?
Super 8 mm
This is Super 8mm film also known as S-8.
Usually recorded in 20 to 24 frames/sec and the ability to have a separate
audio track imbedded in the celluloid edge on the opposite side of the
transport holes that have a rectangular shape.
Standard 8 mm
This film has the same 8mm width as the one above and is known as regular
or standard 8mm film.
Please note that the holes in the filmstrip are larger than S-8 and make
an almost perfect square. This was the first consumer recordable celluloid
strip which had no capability of recording audio therefore your footage will
always be silent.These two film types are usually found in standard reel sizes.
