616 film was originally produced by Kodak in 1932 along with 620 film for the Kodak Six-16 camera. Seventy millimetres wide, the film produced 63.5 mm × 108 mm (2.5" × 4.25") negatives. It was the same format as that of 116 film but on a slimmer spool, for use in more compact cameras. The format was used in many other cameras such as the Kodak Brownie Junior and the Kodak Target SIX-16. The first "6" in the name refers to the number of frames that could originally be exposed on a single roll of film. To avoid customer confusion, the name was not changed when this was increased to eight exposures. From the 30s on, 616 film became less and less popular, in favor of 120 and other film formats. The film was finally discontinued in 1984, while 620 film was discontinued in 1995.
