Introduced by Technicolor in 1957 the negative travelled
horizontally through the camera using an anamorphic lens.
The picture was squeezed by a factor of 1.5. The image was
8 perfs long. The aspect ratio was 2.25 to 1. Technicolor
offered 6 different print formats illustrated below.
Apologies for the colour quality, the prints have been colour
corrected using Photoshop. To see how the prints actually
look go to DYE FADING. In fact
each piece of film has faded differently.
