What is Cine Film

What is Cine Film?

There are many shapes and sizes of Cine Film, dating right back to the early 20th Century, our relatives used to shoot home made movies, and capture their memories on to Cine Film. It comes in many shapes and sizes, but most commonly 9.5mm, 8mm, and 16mm. There is also 35mm which is used in theatres and by large production studios shooting in Panavision or something similar.

 

super8 and standard 8mm cine film transfer types8mm is the most common form of Cine Film as it's peak began in the 1930s through till the mid 1980s. It was the prefered method of capturing film and in later years Sound was introduced to the capturing equipment. You can tell 8mm by the width, which is 8mm and also by the holes which are only down one side of the film. There are 2 types, one has larger holes which are more square as pictured above, this is Standard 8 and was the original 8mm Cine Film format, and the other was Super 8 which you can tell by the smaller holes which if held horizontally are like a horizontal rectangle. There is also a way of telling by the size of the hole in the reel, larger hole is Super 8 (about the width of your small finger) and Standard 8 is small (just larger than the width of a pencil). Some 8mm also had sound, you can see this by the audio track which you will be able to see down the edge where the holes are on the Cine Film. Futher comparison picture below.

Note: there are other forms of 8mm Film, if you believe you have a variation of it please call us and check before sending in as we may not have the equpment to transfer it.

16mm is highly recognisable by the sprocket holes on either side of the film, but also it can be just on the one side of the film if it has an audio track. It measures 16mm in width and was used most commonly in the 1920s. It was largely expensive during it's peak and was used mostly by wealthy families and film companies. It came in 3 formats,Standard 16 which had an aspect ratio view of 1.37:1, Super 16 which was single perforated, it used the extra space to give a larger aspect ratio of 1.67:1, there was also Ultra 16 which was a format adapted for compatability with different types of 16mm film.

 

9.5mm cine film transfer size9.5mm Film comes is very distinguishing by the centre holes in the film. It measures 9.5mm in width and has sprocket holes in the centre of the film which separates the film. 

This type of film is most often from the early 1900s, it's peak was in the 1930s so transfering this is really interesting.

It became very popular in the UK and in Europe which is where the bulk of the projectors were sold, mainly France and England. Originally it was released as an inexpensive format for Commercial Films, but was later followed by an easy camera and became an inexpensive way of making home movies and capturing memories on Film to watch back on the widely popular Pathescope Projectors.
