So to feed this appetite of film, 8mm film was first developed by Eastman Kodak. 8mm stands for 8 mile meter wide film strip and it is motion picture film format. It was the most used format of amateur director or any wanna be movie maker.

Today there are many famous directors in the world who first made their movie by using 8mm film format.  At that time it was considered a good format for making a film because of its better quality image and its most unique cartridge loading system that did not need a reloading and a re-threading thing.

There are also others version of 8mm film with some different quality and by different makers and for different camera use,  like super 8, single 8, straight 8 and ultra pan 8 but the film which made on them offer the same dimension as on 8mm film. It was not so costly also and durable for certain limit of time. Many those who had 8mm camera in past, shot their home videos and some films.

For the amateur movie maker it was also available with a magnetic sound track but the production was stopped because of some technical drawbacks.  But in recent times its demand has increased because of advancements in film stocks because it can handle greater variation of contrast than cameras and there is also and in digital technologies. 8mm film is still produced on a limited basis.
