A very common misconception.

Fujica Single8 was actually the same stock
as Fuji Super8-- only the cartridge shell
was different. The emulsion was thinner on
all the Fuji stocks, and harder to glue,
but the light transmission for the same
scene lit to the same standards on the same
speed stock was actually slightly LOWER for
Fuji than it was for the Kodak stock.

The big advantage Fuji's Single8 had was
that the cartridge was made to allow rewind
for fades or double exposure.
