A photographic film developed by George Eastman as an alternative to glass plates. American film was made with a gelatino-bromide emulsion on a gelatin support. It was introduced in 1884 and used in the Kodak No. 1 cameras. By 1889, gelatin film was replaced by roll film made with a cellulose nitrate substrate.
