Film overview


The numbers and variety of Super 8 and small gauge film stocks available are arguably as good as they’ve ever been – not bad for formats that have been around for over forty years. All film stocks require specialist laboratory processing and the Super 8 negative stocks can only be used with strong and reliable cameras.
