About 9.5mm Movie Film
9.5 mm film is an amateur film format introduced by Pathé Frères in 1922 as part of the Pathé Baby amateur film system. It was conceived initially as an inexpensive format to provide copies of commercially made films to home users, although a simple camera was released shortly afterwards.
It became very popular in Europe over the next few decades and is still used by a small number of enthusiasts today. Over 300,000 projectors were produced and sold mainly in France and England, and many commercial features were available in the format.

If you have 9.5mm films lying around the house, it is never too early to have them transferred to a video. Each time they are projected, they become more scratched and damaged. In digital video form, the content can be preserved in the current state.
