8.75mm Film

#1 by David Ollerearnshaw , Fri Oct 16, 2015 9:23 pm

Looking at various film gauges its amazing how many formats have been around. One that's near to super 8mm is 8.75mm from China. I wonder if this would have a better screen shape to normal 8mm? Would be less waste too = 35mm.

I still love the smell of film in the morning

I was not aware of this format at all. Thanks

Well, even with Standard 8mm ( Regular 8 ) the boffins had to bring in Super 8, marketing men are always trying to sell you
something one day, then the next telling you it is out of date, try the new thing just out. I'd never even heard of that one
though, well spotted David.

Can you remember a suggestion in Movie Maker from one reader who thought we should have the sprocket hole in the middle, like 9.5mm, and call it Super Duper 8. I thought it was a silly suggestion, considering the money that had been spent on films, cameras and projectors. There was another suggestion only about 2 or 3 years ago, that the sprockets on 16mm be changed to vertical, as in super 8, to increase the picture area: I can't see that happening.

8,75 mm was a chinese format. A 35mm film was split in 4. No film lost, that way.
