Two major suppliers of 16mm film today is Kodak and Fujifilm. Eastman Kodak introduced 16 mm motion picture film and equipment in 1923 as an inexpensive amateur alternative to the 35 mm film format. Compared with 35 mm film, the 16 mm format offered advantages such as smaller, cheaper movie cameras and lower film stock and developing costs. Kodak originally aimed this format for the home movie enthusiast but found a successful niche in the educational market. During World War II, the portability of 16 mm cameras made this format popular for professional news reporting. In the 1950s and 60s, there was a huge growth in 16mm production for business, documentary, government, and the medical industry. Currently, 16 mm film is the popular format for independent and film school students.
Although Fuji Photo Film Company was found in 1934 and its released motion picture positive film thrived in Japan, Fujifilm did not enter into the North American film market until much later. Currently 16mm Fujifilm is very competitive against Kodak in terms of quality and pricing.
