    * For many years 16mm was a popular film size among serious film hobbyists. Most commonly it was exposed -- "shot" -- as silent film, in which case the film would have sprocket holes on both sides of the film. When shot with sound, the sprocket holes on one side of the film strip were sacrificed to make room for an optical sound track.
