The History of 16mm Film

Eastman Kodak introduced the 16mm film standard in the 1920s, as an amateur film format that was intended to serve the home enthusiast, business, educational, and government markets; as opposed to 35mm film that was used for major motion pictures at the time.

Two Varieties of 16mm Film:

  • Silent 16mm film will typically have sprocket holes on both sides of the film.
  • Optical sound based 16mm film will typically have an visible audio track instead of the second set of sprocket holes.

Both formats can be converted to digital Bluray, DVD or other types of computer files by Two Squares.

Should I Have My Film Converted to HD?

Some transfer shops insist that high definition video is the only way to go.  This is true when it comes to capturing and post processing, but the final product doesn’t necessarily need to be put on a high definition Bluray disc. Two Squares offers HD film conversion options, but ultimately the decision is yours to make.
