I´m planning on sending a few films, 2x200" to be exact, and don´t have a weightscale. So I´m wondering if anyone know how many grams that´ll be? An approximate number.


PS: I know I can just go to the post office, but it´s night and I´m lazy [Wink]

Jon ...

It really all depends on how much film is on the reels. Some cartoon shorts will be five minutes, while other 200ft shorts will be 9 or more minutes, so it can vary a lot.

Consider also the weight depends on the used stock: polyester is much lighter than acetate. But, of course, I don't think this will make a big difference in your case. Things noticeably change when referring to full features.

I remember when I was (super) 8 years old...
