The introduction and acceptance of super 8 has created completely new problems for the motion-picture industry, lying in all areas of production and in laboratories. In addition, completely new procedures have had to be established for handling and control of material being produced for release in 8mm and in the release prints themselves. All aspects of this film format are discussed from the viewpoint of a producer-distributor, considering the laboratory area from a customer's standpoint.
