Super 8 mm film is a motion picture film format released in 1965 by Eastman Kodak as an improvement of the older “Regular” 8mm home movie format.  Super 8 film comes in plastic light-proof cartridges containing spools loaded with 50 feet of film.  Each cartridge allows for 3 minutes of continuous filming at 18 frames per second
