My film stock - is it 16mm or Super 16mm?

(Double perf of course is only useable as standard 16.)
You can bea absolutely certain if you look again at the label on the can. You should see a red and white sticker saying something like "1R-7.605 B"
The 1R says it has one row of perforations (that is, single perf, on one side only).
7.605 is the pitch (in mm) between each perforation: it's neg pitch, not positive pitch which is slightly longer)
B says it is B-wind: the perfs will be on the same side as the sprockets in your camera (that's kind of useful!).

my film can says "1R-7.605 B". Which as you've explained me is Super 16mm (one row/side of perforations).

OK, you are in business with that stock. . .
my film can says "1R-7.605 B". Which as you've explained me is Super 16mm
But just to be precise (again), it's not the stock that is "super 16", it is the gate in the camera. Single perf stock is fine for standard 16 and super 16 cameras - in fact for all cameras except a very few very old double sprocketed cameras.
