How does 8mm film work?
Regular 8 film is actually 16mm in width when you receive it (on a 25ft daylight camera spool). On the first pass though the camera, the film is exposed only along half of its width. When the first pass is complete, you open the camera and flip / swap the spools. The same film is exposed along its other edge. After the film is developed, both sides of the film is scanned to create a 2-3 minute file (per roll).

This spool WILL NOT fit Super 8 or 8mm cameras that take magazine carts.
