How can I tell what kind of film I have?
The most common types of film are 8mm, Super 8mm, & 16mm. The best way to distinguish the different types of film is by looking at the sprocket holes.

  • 16mm film is 5/8" wide with sprocket holes on both sides.
  • Regular 8 film is 5/16" and has larger sprocket holes on one side of the film placed directly on the line dividing each frame
  • Super 8mm film is 5/16" and has smaller sprocket holes on one side of the film placed in between the lines dividing each frame.
