Types of microfilm

With microfilm almost redundant as a form of archiving documents, it may be a little confusing which type of microfilm you have. There are two main types of film, and these depend on the type/size of the document stored:

16mm film                  35mm film

A standard, 16mm film are used to store A4 business documents, 35mm film used to store large format drawings A2-A0 in size.
In addition to scanning microfilm, we can also scan other types of microform, including microfiche, aperture cards, negatives and X-rays.
