A guide book from the early days of amateur movie making using 9.5 mm film which covers the selection of equipment, taking pictures, processing and editing the film, and projecting and showing the finished product. Around the time of the publication of this book 9.5 mm film was growing in popularity alongside 8mm and 16 mm film. Subsequently, it became less popular than 8 mm film, which was taken up by the wider public, and has a lesser place in the history of cinematography. Nevertheless it retains a small following and this book provides a fascinating insight into the history of amateur movie making.
