Answer The actual 'image' area of the film measures 36mm x 24mm Answer There were three image sizes for 35mm cameras: … 24 x 36 "double frame," which is the most popular size and the only size sold today 24 x 24 "square," which was introduced after World War II as a means of giving the photographer more pictures on a roll 18 x 24 "single frame," which is the same size as a 35mm movie camera frame. This is also called "half frame." Half-frame cameras are very collectible. There is also a 24 x 60 (or thereabouts) panoramic format--long, skinny pictures.

Store your film in a cool, dry and dark place. I use a mini beer frigde to store all my film in.
There are various lengths of prepackaged 35mm film. There are 12 exposure, 24 exposure, and 36 exposure. There are/were also bulk roll film loaders that allowed you to l…oad as many exposures as could fit inside the film container.
To get the film out, if its not already done you will have to wind the film in. Under the camera there should be a small button, press that in. Now, at the top of the camera (…usually on the left) there should be a winder to reel the film back in, as i said if the film is still stretched across the camera reel it in, you will be able to feel the film coming back as it suddenly gets loose, keep reeling for 5 seconds just to be sure that the film is in the canister. Now with the winder on the top of the camera, pull it straight up. It may feel as if it were going to break or not do anything but keep pulling, it should come up relatively easy. One this happens the back should pop open and you can just tap the canister out. Store it in a cool dry place until its ready for developing. :-)
With respect to "still" photography (i.e. not movies) the answer is no part. I derives the moniker from the fact that roll film first used in what we know of as the 35mm… format was intended for movies, which as far as I know, produced an image where one side was 35mm in length. The 35mm name stuck even though the image produced by the still camera is 24mm x 36mm.
Depends on the type of film, B/W, color, transparency etc.
The first 35mm SLR cameras were the Soviet "Sport" camera and the Kine Exakta, produced in 1936.
Well, yes you do. There are instructions here on how to do it yourself at home: ehow.com/how_4450520_develop-35mm-film Or you can send them off to be developed, I personally… use Photobox, via Boots for all of my prints.
Yes, but Kodak still offer a range of high quality professional transparency film but it uses a different chemical process.
Hopefully never, but all good things must come to an end.
There are two ways. (You're talking about the thing you put in the camera, right? That's called a cassette. The "canister" is what the cassette comes in, and you just pop the …lid off of that.) If you've got an old Agfa or Ilford cassette, which is made to be reused, you hold it in your hand with the long side of the spool pointing down, and tap it hard on the table. The end will come off, and then you can slide the spool out of the cassette. Kodak and Fuji cassettes have the ends crimped on. You use a bottle opener to get those open.
I don't use color film, but I develop the black and white myself.
To purchase a 35 mm film camera, one could try their local camera shop. Big box stores and major retail chain pharmacies sell also disposable versions.
