Paper Abstract

Large 75 millimeter format proximity focused image intensifiers can provide high light amplification, high image quality and high speed electronic shuttering functions. These devices have been incorporated in still and cine photographic camera systems. This paper will describe the most recent application of the proximity focused image intensifier to a 70 millimeter motion picture (cine) photographic camera system. Design considerations, acceptance test performance and limitations of the present system are discussed. Recommendations for improvement using direct contact image intensified photography and high speed electronic gating are suggested.
