Perhaps there is some value in simply agreeing that the threads of
commericalism and art, professional and amateur, and public and private
have always been part of film's smaller gauge formats, while the
manufacture of larger formats have precipitated mostly professional
applications (eg, 35mm, and to a large extent 65mm, 70mm, and IMAX).
