Single8 film was introduced onto the market in 1965 by Fuji film.  For a more complete understanding of the history of the format, follow the links on this page, or use a search engine on the internet.

Single8 has always had an enthusiastic following, similar to users of Super8, it has a similar frame area and boasts image stability that can sometimes plague the odd Super8 cartridge.  Between Super8 and Single8 there are a few differences, but by and large both format types capture amazing footage, and in the right hands can enable a keen film maker to create stunning images on film.

Single8 films that are currently available:

Fujichrome R25N colour daylight film ASA 25

Retro-X Black & White ASA 200

Cinevia 50D colour ASA 50

Cinevia T64 colour ASA 64 Tungsten

Cinevia 100D colour ASA 100 Daylight

Retro8 Velvia ASA 64T Tungsten

Retro8 Aviphot ASA 200 Daylight

Retro8 Astia ASA 100F Daylight

All the above films are reversal.  A feature of Single8 film is that it can be projected and telecined on the same equipment used for Super8 film.
