Could anyone help me understand what microfilm is? One of my professors just gave me a roll of this.

It's used for storing documents as extremely small images, which are then viewed in a microfilm reader.

Data sheet here

It's high in contrast, low ISO and intended for a specific developer, so testing a single roll may be problematic. It's on a plastic spool so would need to be handled carefully to avoid fogging.

It’ll be quite problematic because microfilms are not perforated.

Ah. Didn't think of that. Back to Friese-Greene's original movement, then? I understood that he originally tried to use unperforated film.

Simon, has it similar characteristics to your gigabit film ?  And is that an old roll of film pictured, or do Kodak still make the stuff.

Gigabitfilm was not my product. Mr. Detlef Ludwig’s. I only had some 16 perfed and introduced both formats, 35 and 16, to cinematography.

Yes, both are originating microfilms.

No, EPMINC of Dallas TX sells Agfa-Gevaert made stuff since 2013. https://www.epminc.com/
