A 16mm roll film conversion requires different microfilm scanner hardware accessories than a 35 mm roll film digital conversion, such as smaller rollers and guiders. However, when it comes to digital microfilm conversion, the final product is not different when comparing 16mm to 35mm.
Generally, all types of documents are contained on 16mm roll film, in many cases 8.5 x 11 or 8.5 x 14 images. That means microfilm scanning takes care of everything. Of course, 16 mm film can also contain maps, blueprints, checks, computer printouts, EKG graphs, earthquake records, and technically anything that was on paper.
