How To Determine Film Reel Sizes

50-foot Reel

A 50-foot reel will fit in the palm of your hand.
Running time: about 3 minutes.

200-foot Reel

A 200-foot reel is about the size of a CD or DVD.
Running time: about 13 minutes.

400-foot Reel

Remember 45-rpm records? A 400-foot reel is about the same size.
Running time: about 26 minutes.

Your boxes may be labeled, "Double 8, 25 feet." Old 8mm movie cameras used a 25-foot roll of 16mm film. When this film was processed in Kodak's lab, it was slit down the center, becoming two 25-foot film strips, 8 millimeters wide. These strips were then spliced together. The result: 50 feet of film.

Old movie reels often have a footage scale. If your reel isn't full, the scale can help to estimate how much film is on the reel.
