Photography has developed rapidly over the years with equipment and film working in tandem to leader new methods of taking photos. The 35mm film, also referred to as 135 film, can be used for still photographs and motion pictures. The 35mm camera was put on the market in 1934 and was a best seller by the late 1960s and still enjoys success today. Standards were adhered to in the industry and the usual film format is 24x36mm, allowing for 2mm gaps between frames.

The standard roll length is 36 exposures, but 12 and 24 exposures are also popular for today’s 35mm camera. Some disposable cameras, used for taking holiday snaps and for special occasions, tend to use 6, 8, 10 or 15 exposure film. The first still camera to become popular with the public, using 35mm film was the American Tourist Multiple, which began selling in 1913.
