Hi, I'm going to make a short film on 16mm. I know that when shooting on 16 mm any lense focal distance is equivalent to half its focal distance when used on 35mm. For example a 25 mm lesne used on 16mm is the same as a 50mm used on 35mm .
If that is correct, what happens with the sense of space.

For example:

A lense with a focal distance of 25mm used on 16mm camera will have exactly the same feel as a 50mm focal distance lense used on 35 mm film?

If there are any, what are the differences and how can I work with them?

Is it better to use 35 mm lenses than 16 mm lenses when working on 16mm film cameras?

Hope I made my self clear enough. Thanks in advance, best regards.
