Newest fad to sweep the nation is the sport of miniature movies. It is estimated that more than 2,000,000 persons in the United States now have projectors and that a goodly portion of this number also own their own cameras. Newest development along this line is the commercial newsreel in 8-mm and 16 mm size offered for home projection. Heretofore, films available for amateur cameramen have usually been either animated cartoons, travelogs or antique Hollywood features. The amazing way in which this hobby has caught on promises to make it a major industry within the next few years. Candid camera fans are also growing in number, especially in the film colony.
