Paper Abstract

The use of motion picture cameras and film in analyzing moving objects, particular] high speed motion, has played an important role in the access of information. Not only does film furnish a picture with high resolution, it is relatively inexpensive and easy to use. Various situations where film has been used successfu include missile firings, sled track runs, rocket lift-offs, automobile crash studie radiology studies, sports analysis, with emplasis on football, and various industri motion applications. More specifically, in research applications, the study of Met Attitude, Failure, and Position. This presentation is directed primarily to the history and development of analytica projectors used in viewing motion picture film with emphasis on high speed moving pictures in the 100 to 10,000 frames per second mode. Various types of film have been used. Cameras such as Fairchid, Fastax, PhotoSonics, Askania, Red Lake, Milliken, Bell Howell, Eastman Kodak, etc.
