FujiEdit

Fujifilm stopped production of all motion picture and still film stocks on March 31, 2013. [10] For negative stocks, "85" prefix designates 35 mm, "86" prefix designates 16 mm stock. Stock numbers ending in a "2" are Fuji's Super-F emulsions (1990s) and the stocks ending in "3" are the new Eterna emulsions.[11]

Also, Eterna Vivid series negatives' last second suffix as "4", and the ending suffix as different "E.I.".

For intermediate stocks, as negatives', adding "45" prefix designates 35 mm in polyester (PET) base, and "87" prefix designates 65/70 mm.

For positive and print stocks, "35" indicates 35 mm print film, and "36" indicates 16 mm print film.

Fuji also introduced their Reala film, a color stock with a fourth color emulsion layer, which is also the fastest daylight balanced color motion picture stock ever offered at 500 ISO.

As of March 2013, Fuji had ceased production of all motion picture film.[12]

Eastman KodakEdit

In films from 1950 on, the first two digits (the prefix) of the four-digit emulsion number identify the gauge and base of film:[18]

Prefix Description
12 Nitrate-base 35 mm negative film
13 Nitrate-base 35 mm print film
22 ESTAR-base 35 mm (or larger) camera film
23 ESTAR-base 35 mm (or larger) lab/print film
32 ESTAR-base 16 mm or 8 mm camera film
33 ESTAR-base 16 mm or 8 mm lab/print film

72 Acetate-base 16 mm or 8 mm camera film
73 Acetate-base 16 mm or 8 mm lab/print film

A "T" suffix designates a tungsten (3200K) balanced negative and a "D" suffix designates a daylight (5600K) negative. The number preceding this is the film's exposure index as determined by Kodak (it is NOT ISO speed).
