Hello,

I'm looking for a roll of 16mm film with no perforations. Color or BW, medium speed so around 100-400 ASA.

The only online place i've found that sells 16mm film is B&H Photo/Video/Audio, so I must be doing something wrong. Can someone point me to the film i'm looking for or a good distributor of 16mm film? I do not require much, just 100-200 feet.

Thanks!

John

I'm not sure you can get 16mm with no perforations because all film cameras need them to work. The options are double (down both sides) and single (down one side), I assume it's the latter you need. There are quite a few companies that sell film stock around the world, where are you located?

IF you really need 16mm with no perforations, you'd have to arrange a special order with Kodak or Fuji.

OK I'm curious having just seen the above post, what do you use 16mm with no perforations for?

I'm assuming this is 16mm microfilm we discussing. http://www.microfilm.com/film.htm

I am sure you can purchase non-perforated stock with FilmoTec, I know the people, was their lab client and reseller.

Other non-perforated film is, Brian is right, microfilm but there you need to take more than only hundred foot.
