In the decades since then, literally hundreds of companies have produced a large variety of 35mm cameras, ranging from "single use" disposable cameras to professional-level SLR systems.As implied by the name, these cameras use 35mm-wide film, spooled into light-tight cartridges. Most 35mm cameras record 24 by 36mm images on the film, but alternate formats (such as 24 x 32mm and 24 x 18mm) do exist. The 35mm format provides a comfortable balance between image clarity, camera size, and affordability that has made the format popular with with professional and amateur photographers.
