Camera films l.jpg

Camera Films

  • Captures the original image.

  • Negative film produces the reverse of the colors and/or tones our eye sees in the scene and must be printed on another film stock or transferred for final viewing.

  • Reversal film gives a positive image directly on the original camera film.

Camera Film Color Balance

  • Camera films are balanced for 5500K daylight or 3200K tungsten.

  • Color films designated T are tungsten-balanced.

  • Color films designated D are daylight-balanced.

Film gauge l.jpg

Film Gauge

  • Four common camera film gauges:

  • Super 8

  • 16 mm

  • 35 mm

  • 65 mm


Image format and aspect ratio l.jpg

Image Format and Aspect Ratio

  • Aspect ratio is independent of gauge.

  • 1.85:1

  • 1.66:1 (red) and 1.78:1 (cyan)


4 perf scope l.jpg

4-perf Scope

  • A scope negative and print. The entire area will become the 2.40:1 image when unsqueezed.

  • The boxes in the images below show the aspects that can be taken from a Super 35 mm frame:

2.40:1

1.85:1

1.78:1 (16x9)

  • squeezed print of the 2.40:1

  • If shooting with a 1.85:1 aspect ratio, the image will also have to be resized to fit in a standard release format.

  • Do you need medium speed with better image structure?

  • High color saturation?

  • Blue screen work?

  • Lower contrast, more open shadows, softer look?
