A brief review of the 8mm format is given. There was an increased interest in professional 8mm in the early sixties. The potential of the 8mm-width print film was retarded by the lack of existing standards. Standardization is essential to provide a base for widespread use and worldwide distribution. The possibility of 8mm print footage surpasses both 35mm and 16mm if the industry adopts the necessary standards.
