How to use microfilm

This shows how to use microfilm, which lacks the sprocket holes.


Get a cheap camera to remodel.

Cut down the sprocket claws with a nail cutter.

Apply synthetic glue on it to get enough friction.


If needed and possible, drill a small hole to the spool (right ) and pour a small amount of glue to enforce the friction. For Canon AE-1 and AV-1, the rotation is on the opposite side to the expectation. So this does not work.


With this cheap improvement, a small film camera can make as good images as the ones 6x9 can make.
