What is 35mm camera?

In photography, a 35mm camera is a camera that shoots 35mm film (typically produced by Kodak or Fuji). These include consumer cameras with a fixed lens, disposible cameras, and professional SLR (single lens reflex) cameras.

In motion pictures, 35mm cameras refer to any motion picture camera that shoots, 35mm or Super 35mm film (again, Kodak or Fuji). This is opposed to 16mm, Super 16mm, 8mm, and Super 8mm cameras.
