Paper Abstract

Exposure time reduction with rotating prism cameras is usually achieved with narrow angle shutters, or slits. Exposure times of 1 microsecond are possible with this low cost method, but there are disadvantages: (1) Vast amounts of continuous lighting are required to produce a correctly exposed film, even with the fastest materials available. (2) Total frame recording time remains constant for a given setting. `Focal plane' distortion occurs, particularly with extremely fast events, although subject movement is `frozen.'
