Cross Reference of Films

Roll film cross-reference table

Before WWII, each film manufacturer used its own system of numbering for the various sizes of roll films they produced. The following table shows the corresponding numbers across manufacturers.

NOTE:

  • A blank space means that manufacturer did not make a film in that size.

  • Two numbers in one box refers to films available with different numbers of exposures, usually 6 and either 10 or 12.

  • Spool length is measured between inner faces of the flanges; several films of the same image size were available on different spools to fit different cameras.
