Negative film

Film for 135 film cameras comes in long narrow strips of chemical-coated plastic or cellulose acetate. After each image is captured by the camera onto the film strip, the film strip is advanced so that the next image is projected onto unexposed film. When the film is developed, it is a long strip of small negative images. This strip is often cut into sections for easier handling. In larger cameras this piece of film may be as large as a full sheet of paper or even larger, with a single image captured onto one piece.
