Most 8mm release prints are derived from productions originally photographed on either 16mm or 35mm materials. Several methods of printing involving reduction steps have been used commercially. Some of the printing systems used and some of the printing equipment that has been or is being used by different laboratories for the making of large quantities of 8mm release prints are described.
