    according to wikepedia:135 film. The film is 35 mm (1.4 in) wide. Each image is 36×24 mm in the most common "full-frame" format (sometimes called "double-frame" for its relationship to the "single frame" 35 mm movie format).

    In 1916, a very small box camera named the No. 00 Cartridge Premo camera was introduced using a No.35 roll film. This was numbered differently as it was not the same as the Eastman Non-Curling film supplied in the other roll film sizes but was apparently made from unperforated 35mm motion-picture film. In 1934 when 35mm film in cartridges were introduced with the Kodak Retina camera, number 135 was assigned to this product. This film size could also be used in the Contax and Leica cameras. Daylight-loading spools of film for these two cameras were also offered, and were numbered 235 and 435. In July 1952, a special length of film for 20 pairs of pictures made with 35mm stereo cameras was introduced and designated as 335.

    Maybe where you live it is, but apparently not in Australia. Maybe that's why I ordered a pint of beer in Sidney one day and it was only half full.

    EDIT. Oh, sorry Steve. I misread your statement. I thought you were being literal, but then I found out you were being funny.

    Humour going wrong I see. Why am I still scratching my head then!

    You'd better hope I can calculate - Im also a nurse.

    Im just happy calling that format 35mm and 120 being well... '120'. Maybe the format grew 1mm somewhere. *oh wow... the innuendo's*

    Kodak and logic in the same sentence is an oxymoron
