What is the difference between Negative Film and Reversal Film?
- Negative film is a film that after development produces a negative for scanning to a digital file. Negative film can not be projected and is returned to you (unslit) on a film core.
- Reversal Film is a film that produces a positive image after development. The film is slit and returned to you on a 50 ft reel. Reversal film can be scanned and also projected in a vintage film projector.
We accept the following Double 8 film:
- Cine 8 BW Positive 40 Reversal
