Paper Abstract

Photographers have long been striving for high performance, low f/number lenses to get that special picture under extremely poor lighting conditions without the aid of flood lights or flash. The image intensifiers heveloped at Ft. Belvoiris Night Vision Laboratory for the infiltration problems of the Vietnam War have the potential of giving the photographer low-light-level capability without imposing unreasonable lens size requirements. This paper is directed toward discussing the photographic systems that can be built around such intensifiers, their advantages and the fundamental limitations encountered.
